END-OF-LIFE DOULA TRAINING Learn how to support the dying and their loved ones.
Are you that person in your closest circles who naturally steps up, wants to help and finds ways to ease suffering, exhaustion, fear and grief? Perhaps you are already in the trenches as a hospice professional or volunteer? You are not alone. There are others just like you who feel honored to be present at the passing of a loved one, who have been profoundly moved by the experience. We understand how tough it is to navigate hard decisions at the end of life, in the face of overwhelming emotions, and how complex family dynamics can complicate the picture. We get it and we are not afraid. Somehow, we feel it is the place where we can most make a difference for others.

There are two paths you can take ...
1. Become a professional end-of-life doula
