The Sacred Journey of Conscious Dying

IN THE END THERE IS ONLY LOVE

How Can You Bring More Ease, Grace, and Love into the Dying Process?

 

Most of us have very little experience and understanding of the End of Life process

and the complex emotions and spiritual elements that come into play.

We might want to support our loved ones or clients but do not have the mastery needed to do so.

This retreat is designed to empower you with knowledge and guidance
to infuse this sacred life experience with Ease, Grace, and Love.

As Midwives, we witness time and time again how heart-ache, anxiety,

and fear dominate this fragile and emotional time.

It is upon each of us to step into this space to repair the connection to the present, source, self,

and each other with simple and effective tools and practices and above all love.

One of our greatest joys comes from former retreat participants who share

how this course allowed them to deeply care for, and hold space for,

those choosing the sacred journey of conscious dying.

Voices from the Community

Birgitta and Cheserae are amazing teachers and bring a personal level of commitment to this incredible work. Their loving spirits, compassionate natures, and deep knowledge of the subject came through in their teachings. The materials they provided were in-depth and practical. They created an inclusive space where I felt safe to explore my own feelings and abilities by doing practical, meaningful exercises. This work is so crucial and touches my soul deeply. It was truly a profound experience for me.

MRS. GILBERT – VENTURA CA

Thank you both for a beautiful experience. Each person there made it that much more special and personal. Birgitta and Cheserae, you brought all the love, knowledge and energy I had hoped for and more.

BIRGITTA
KASTENBAUM

Birgitta is a Holistic Life Coach, doTERRA Wellness Advocate, Women’s Community Leader, and a modern medicine woman: merging the sacred with the practical in day to day life. Helping people reconnect the human heart and spirit back to nature is a central thread in her work.  

As an End of Life Guide and Doula, Birgitta educates and supports individuals, families, health care providers, and organizations in reimagining death and dying.

The sacred privilege of walking people home has shaped Birgitta’s perspective of life as precious and love as invaluable. This perspective fuels her desire to support others in finding meaning and joy in their life.

CHESERAE
SCALA

Cheserae has spent the last 8 years studying the process of mystical death through transpersonal psychology, and learning about how to support and facilitate end of life care. Since her youth, Cheserae found herself drawn to the subtle, the sacred, and the extraordinary.

Inspired with a new vision of what is possible in death and dying, and having forged new alliances with Hospice, 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, bringing the sacred and beauty into the end of life.

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.
