Like a Birthing Doula brings a baby into the world in a warm and celebratory way, an End-of-Life Doula helps people transition out of the world in a warm and peaceful way.

 An End-of-Life Doula guides and supports a person near the end of their life emotionally, spiritually, practically and physically. We are non-medical; we are not a health aide.

Dying is the second leading fear globally.

When a person gets a terminal diagnosis, it's beyond devastating. Lives change, emotions are erratic and fear and anxiety set the tone.

This course will show you many of the tools an End-of-Life Doula brings in to the world of a person who will soon pass away.

In any situation in life, when you are equipped with knowledge and guidance, it helps the journey flow more smoothly, with calmness and ease.

With guidance and support you can feel confident in the road ahead, you can exude that feeling to all those around you.

Whether this is for you, a friend, family member, patient advocate or caregiver, thank you for your interest in "being the one" for the person who is about to cross over. 

This a sacred milestone in life and by choosing to learn more about it, you are learning the tools that are necessary to help a person cross over the bridge in their own journey of life. 

 End-of-Life is overwhelming and frightening for most. By learning and knowing, you’ll have the confidence to help a person and their family navigate this time. This road travel is an honor to be on. Congratulations on taking a first step towards a beautiful and more peaceful experience.
