"Only when you drink from the river of silence
shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top,
then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs,
then you shall truly dance."
Death is the final bloom in the last season of life. Dying is the sacred process of that magnificent event.
Our compassionate doulas accompany and support the dying with loving presence in the final hours of life.
Caring for a loved one nearing the end of life can be exhausting physically, as well as emotionally. Our caring doulas can assist with the daily responsibilities of life such as laundry, food shopping, meal preparation, child care and animal care.
Creating a legacy project to honor and remember the life of a loved one offers a meaningful way to enable beautiful reflection and open inspiring conversation.
Legacy projects celebrate life and living and provide tangible comfort and grief healing.
Careful clearing, intentional sorting, methodical decluttering and thoughtful organization produce a sense of release, relief, well-being and satisfaction. Death clearing can be performed prior to illness, after death or at any point of a life transition.
Preparing for the end-of-life transition by developing a death plan relieves the burden of decision making from loved ones and also ensures wishes are honored.
End-of-life care may be especially more difficult for folks of the queer community, therefore needing special attention to certain issues.
The uplifting power of music and song, as the final transition from this life approaches, can provide peace and comfort to the dying and to the family.
With respect, kindness and empathy, our bereavement photographer can capture the last beautiful memories and incredible moments of a loved one.
Do you feel called to guide the dying on their final transition?
Our course is offered over 12 Thursdays and covers topics of death & dying, issues facing the queer community and all elements of becoming an end-of-life doula.
