Sacred Passages Death Doula Training

When we step onto the shamanic path of intentional Sacred Passages work,

All of the Universe and Nature conspire to help us so we can in turn help

our brothers and sisters.

As a Shamanic practitioner and certified Death Doula I share my life and death  experiences as a dreamtime spirit transition guide, death doula trainer and EOL care guide with ancient earth based “Dying to Live” practices in my Sacred Passages Death Doula Program. You will learn many of these time honored practices that have been used by shamans and wisdom keepers for centuries. In my unique death doula certification training, I like to weave my traditional EOL doula training and hospice experience the spiritual tools from my shaman lineage in death and journey practices. This way I deliver a dynamic, practical mystic approach to living an authentic life before and through the dying process. I have helped prepare the way for transitioning clients as well as EOL care providers since 2000 with my own signature conscious death meditations and lucid dream journeys from my Sacred Passages practice. 

So… What is a Death Doula?  Mostly, death doulas are caring individuals who mediate between the dying client with their loved ones, medical staff and hospice. Many western trained doulas attend bedside in all capacities so no one dies alone.

As an initiated shaman in death rites and ritual, dream yoga and sound healing, I found the Western method of EOL training lacking in what I experienced and believe are  essential ingredients for a Life Well Lived in preparation for an anticipated Transition from this life to our next best one.

Taking all that I learned including my EOL care experiences and own NDE’s,  I wove the western approach with my shaman work to create Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Training.  It’s focus being: educating and sharing simple, effective practices to those interested in living a life that is free from pain and suffering; releasing earthly conditioning and traumas that weigh us down and create dis-ease. Having practices for a conscious death transition in place before we die brings life and death into balance, prepares us for our sacred passages throughout this life, our EOL and next life, especially when we have the practices in how to navigate the “In Between” worlds or Bardos.

As a Shamanic Death Doula practitioner, I will share shamanic-inspired exercises  with you so through your own experiences and continued practice will know first hand how to guide your community through many death and transition scenarios.

Through my hospice work experience, personal NDE’s, shamanic work and journeys, I have become acquainted with and verified many of the places where our spirit may end up; the in between places of here and now. Through extensive shamanic training I have experienced how to navigate from this world through portals to places of ultimate departure. Journaling and mapping out these in between places have provided shamans throughout the centuries with invaluable help and information from their transition spirit guides and teachers— I share these mapping meditation techniques in my Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula training.

This is a unique certification program for those who are called to an alternative approach to EOL care with practices rich in dream work, creative visualization meditations, trauma and grief somatic release methods and sound healing practices cultivated throughout lifetimes. Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Certification (SPSDD) is designed for midwives, EOL caregivers, hospice workers, nurses, doctors, therapists and students who want to learn how to die while living a beautiful life.

Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Certification Training is 30-60 hour program and begins when you feel called to do The Work and are ready to commit to this heart path of serving humanity as a guide through the sacred stages in this lifetime to next.

I would love to hear from you if this is your heart calling!
