Thank you to everyone who joined us! ​​

About this event

The end-of-life journey, and how we view and prepare for it, is shifting. With this shift comes a need for support in the transition from life to death. In this virtual event, we will explore the role of a death doula from professionals in the field.

Our hope is that you'll walk away from this virtual event with a better understanding of what a death doula is, and how they can provide support while navigating the uncharted waters of dying and death. There will be an information panel discussion, followed by an opportunity to ask questions.

  • Wendy Longacre Brown, End of Life Doula & Legacy Creator

  • Nina Guertin, End-Of-Life-Doula Care, Spiritual Director, Ritualist
