I am offering a series of three gatherings that will culminate with a practical experience of how to provide care for someone at home following their death. This Deathcaring Series will be relevant to anyone who has taken death doula courses and wants some additional, and hands-on, training in physical deathcare to add to their “toolbox”. The series will also be helpful to individuals, or couples, who are exploring what a “good death” means and want to understand more about reclaiming traditions of caring for our loved ones after their death, including how to have a family-led/home funeral.
These 3 dates are offered together since each afternoon builds the foundation for the next. Space is limited to a small group and the cost is $150 per person for the series. Since it will be a small group there could be flexibility on the day or time offered, if this is an issue for anyone.
Sat., Mar. 25, 2023: 1 to 4pm Uncover what “a good death” means to you through conversation, reflection and exercises. Create a draft of your own “death plan” for your dying time and after death arrangements.
Sat., Apr. 22, 2023: 1 to 4pm Review and discuss the elements of our death plans. Learn about what is happening during the active dying time. Review the materials required for caring for our dead at home.
Sat., May 6, 2023: 1 to 4pm Learn about “after deathcare” in this hands-on home funeral practicum.
The above events will all take place in a home setting close to downtown Kingston. Please contact me directly if you have any questions or would like to register. Aileen email@example.com
