“It is important to approach dying with a
strong back and a loving heart.”
—Roshi Joan Halifax (paraphrased)
We help you honor those who are
passing or have passed on.
We can help you plan and create a special, personalized ceremony honoring the life of a loved one. See our Ceremonies and Rituals page for more information.
THE PATH OF LOVE: CLASSES
This one-time class, led by our experienced instructors, helps empower you to provide compassionate service during the dying process.
As we walk with our loved one during their end of life, we can set the tone to be of honor and grace. Our in-person training hosted in Salem, OR, will help you navigate the dying process. We will meet for two hours at a TBD venue in Salem; the maximum participation will be 15 persons (and we will comply with all guidelines for COVID-19 outlined by Marion County). We hope to be able to host this class in Fall 2020. In this course, you will...
Learn how to plan and hold a final vigil or memorial service.
Learn how to provide a loving presence and offer supportive companionship to both the dying and the loved ones.
Create a physical legacy of their lives in a form that is personal and meaningful to them and their family.
Work with Cheryl to create a short, written memorial piece. We also offer the service of writing biographies for families.
Have the opportunity to let us help you craft a special obituary.
This training is led by Joan, who trained through NODA (No One Dies Alone), as well as Cheryl, who trained through INELDA (International End of Life Doula Association).
