Co-Founder + Chief Inspirational Officer
Cheserae is a mother, teacher, wellness coach, esthetician, and spiritual student, and has found her life’s mission working as a death doula. She has spent the last 7 years studying the process of mystical death through transpersonal psychology, and learning about how to support and facilitate end of life care. Among her many gifts is the ability to bring beauty into any situation, and to help her clients discover the beauty within.
Since her youth, Cheserae found herself drawn to the subtle, the sacred, and the extraordinary, and she felt this call growing stronger ever since becoming a mother. She was blessed to have the opportunity to become a certified Death Midwife prior to her mother’s diagnosis with terminal cancer. Fulfilling this role for her mother and helping to create a peaceful and healing transition for her family and community was one of the greatest, and most transformational experiences of her life.
Inspired with a new vision of what is possible in death and dying, and having forged new alliances with Hospice, funeral homes, community leaders, and colleagues, Cheserae has committed to sharing this work with families, groups, and individuals. She currently works as a death doula, and offers end of life support, death care directives, after death care, home funeral planning and ceremony, as well as classes and programs for those interested in learning more about death and dying work.
Her newest project involves sharing the sacred use of essential oils in tending for the dying, and focuses both on the oils for the dying as well as those for supporting the caregivers. Being a caregiver herself, she is especially excited to share this beautiful way to care for the caregivers.
In her rare moments of spare time, she is the Chief Inspirational Officer and keeper of beauty and grace for Essential Medicina and Alquimia, and continues to inspire (and be the guinea pig for) all of our new and potential products.
Cheserae and Eric were officially married in July of 2014, and joined their families into a millennial Brady Bunch worthy of wonder. Their five children have all contributed to the creation and growth of this vision and its perfect unfolding.
