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.
Join Us For An Exploration Of:
How to hold death close while living fully
The role of the End Of Life Midwife & Death Doula
The place of ritual in the sacred journey to the end
Redefining what it means to care for our own in modern times
The dance of Conscious Living & Conscious Dying
BE-ING with dying and death
Integrating old and new wisdoms
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.
