TheSacred Passage: End-of-Life Doula Certificate Program offered through The Conscious Dying Institute prepares caregivers from all disciplines and care settings to befriend death, surrender and trust deeply in each moment and restore death to its sacred place in the beauty, mystery and celebration of life. It builds communities of care and healing, benefiting all those involved in care at the end of life.
Unlike many 3-day proscriptive, fast-serve “How-to” certificate workshops, by entering into this innovative 3-month course of study with the Conscious Dying Institute, you will receive more than a certificate. You will receive a new body of innovative training in End-of-Life Literacy AND experience nurturing and transformative, personal inner-work.
Conscious Dying Education is a body of work arising from our founder’s forty years of practice in multiple healing arts and spiritual lineages resulting in transformational healing for everyone. It is a unique whole-person, whole-being, whole-health education process with uniquely transformational and innovative courseware offered through the Conscious Dying Institute, the country’s leading end-of-life literacy and doula educational organization.
You will receive a new language, a new inner experience based on your true essence. You will renew your healing gifts and talents, and restore your true purpose and calling—a purpose reconnected to your spiritual path.
This combination of end-of-life literacy and transformational education, creates a new caring, healing, culture and communities of care at the end-of-life and restores death to its sacred place in the beauty, mystery and celebration of life.
It changes end-of-life care by transforming caregivers, preparing caregivers to be authentically present, communicate with vulnerability, honesty, and compassion and give comforting healing care to anyone, regardless of health status or setting.
