What is a Sacred Passage Doula? 
Sacred Passage Doulas are frontline end of life caregivers who offer healing care to families and patients during critical illness and the dying process. They work individually or in teams, being available around the clock, filling the care-gaps before, nearing and during death. Their compassionate presence increases quality-of-life moments of the families and patients they serve. The presence of a Sacred Passage Doula at bedside assures that families and loved ones can focus on what is most important throughout the dying time.

Who Is It For? 
Frontline staff, nurses, clinicians, healing arts professionals, home and family caregivers, or anyone wishing to serve at the end of life, including those interested in exploring their own mortality and desiring to deepen their present moment awareness and full experience of life.

How Does It Work? 
The Sacred Passage: Doula Certificate Program changes end of life care by transforming caregivers who return the emotional, spiritual, physical, practical care and loving experience they receive to the patients and families they serve. It prepares caregivers to be authentically present, communicate with vulnerability, honesty, and compassion and administer palliative-based comfort care healing modalities to anyone, in any setting, regardless of health status.

Sacred Passage Doula, Phase 1 & 2
This is a 2-phase program leading to the Conscious Dying Institute Sacred Passage: End of Life Doula Certificate. These non-residential workshops are not offered separately.

The program is designed to bring the caregiver into a deeper understanding of, and peace with, his or her own mortality. After all, it is hard to comfort the dying if the comforter is feeling fear. Through live music, restorative and releasing “practices for death”, vision mapping for end of life, grief and forgiveness activities, and other clinically-tested tools, participants heal their own sense of separation an isolation from life, and death.

From this place of greater self-understanding, there is a far greater capacity for holding one another, listening attentively, being open and honest, and offering forgiveness and love. In this setting, transformational, evidence-based, caring and healing practices are taught through the Caring Science Theory of Dr. Jean Watson and Conscious Dying Principles and Practices of Tarron Estes.                    

Program Results:

  • Moving from curative care of the physical body to healing care of the whole person
  • Creating vitality instead of physical exhaustion
  • Offering supported conversations instead of challenging topics
  • Making space for beauty-filled visions and Best Life Care plans instead of unexpressed wishes
  • Transmuting unexpressed feelings into life satisfaction and completion
  • Implementing complementary therapies in 5 domains of life: Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, Life Review, After Death Care.
  • Creating caring healing environments for patients and staff
  • Create caring healing relationships that nurture self and others
  • Creating caring communication and conversational confidence with staff, residents, patients and families regarding care choices at end of life
  • Facilitating sharing of stories of grief, loss, miracles, mysteries and unexplainable events with family, staff, and patients
  • Administering life completion practices including forgiveness, gratitude, legacy, grief work. 

Participants will be able to implement the Conscious Dying Principles and Practices:

  • Increase beauty, pleasure, contentment
  • Provide emotional and spiritual support
  • Initiate conversations about the dying process
  • How and when to practice self care to reduce burnout and emotional fatigue
  • Demystify the stages of the dying process

    Our Caring Science Conscious Dying "Master’s Path Certificate" draws from philosophy, ethics, values, and teachings of Caring Science as Sacred Science and Conscious Dying Healing Care Principles and Practices. The program renews the purpose and art of care-giving as a Spiritual Practice, increasing connection to our heart’s call to serve humanity before, during, and nearing end of life.

    Participants may for the first time encounter deeper aspects of themselves that expand their self-awareness and help them identify their own hopes, beliefs and desires regarding end of life preparing them to walk this path with others.

    Our program may remind them of their inter-connectedness to all life, their true nature and therefore the implications of their presence and practice with those they serve. Participants may feel their personal losses, grief, and the need to forgive and be forgiven for the first time and see the possibility for their own transformation and healing.

    The program focuses our care practices on the powerful and subtle energetic portals of healing available to all attending nearing death. This focus is on availability of life energy-the unitary field of consciousness, and intimate human to human connection via the immediate environment. It increases our inherent healing abilities and enables all care providers to become stronger in their personal presence as agents of healing and stewards in the art of surrender and letting go. It allows all involved to reconnect with Death as a transformative sacred passage and powerful portal in the circle of life.  It may increase healing care practices, shift and support the use of curative medical technical practices, and increase love care and healing for all.

    Refund/Cancellation Policy:  All prices are in USD. A minimum non-refundable deposit of $995.00 is required to register for all ticket types.  If for any reason you need to cancel your attendance for this event, we will happily reschedule for another program within 12 calendar months.

    January 30 - February 3, 2019     Asheville, NC  USA
    * This is a two-part program, so registration for Phases I and II is required. It is held in the beautiful retreat center, Sanctuary in the Pines, in Flat Rock, NC.  If you don't have other lodging arrangements, we invite you to make arrangements there to fully take advantage of the shared retreat setting.  

    The Sacred Passage Doula Certificate Program program benefits all those involved in the care of life, love, family, and healing. From healthcare professionals to concerned family members to end-of-life experts, this provides the preparation needed to befriend death, surrender and trust deeply in each moment, become part of the next great evolution in healthcare, and become a supportive and effective end-of-life companion. 

    For those wishing to dive even deeper with a calling to teach this work, you may also enter the Conscious Dying Institute Master's Path .  Total cost of the CDE (Conscious Dying Educator certificate) is $4595.00 and includes the Doula Certificate. If you have already completed the Doula Certificate, cost is $1595.

    What is a Sacred Passage Doula? 
    End of Life Doulas are frontline caregivers who offer healing care to families and patients during critical illness and the dying process. They work individually or in teams, being available around the clock, filling the care-gaps before, nearing and during death. Their compassionate presence increases quality life-moments of the families and patients they serve. The presence of an end of life Doula at bedside assures that families and loved ones can focus on what is most important throughout the dying time.

    Who Is It For? 
    Frontline staff, nurses, clinicians, healing arts professionals, home and family caregivers, or anyone wishing to serve at the end of life, including those interested in exploring their own mortality and desiring to deepen their present moment awareness and full experience of life.

    How Does It Work? 
    The Sacred Passage Doula Certificate Program changes end of life care by transforming caregivers who return the emotional, spiritual, physical, practical care and loving experience they receive to the patients and families they serve. It prepares caregivers to be authentically present, communicate with vulnerability, honesty, and compassion and administer palliative-based comfort care healing modalities to anyone, in any setting, regardless of health status.

    Sacred Passage Doula, Phase 1 & 2
    This is a 2-phase program leading to the Conscious Dying Institute's Sacred Passage Doula Certificate. It offers 66 Continuing Education Credits (CEU's) and the workshops are not offered separately. Both retreats are non-residential, which means they do not include housing. 

    The program is designed to bring the caregiver into a deeper understanding of, and peace with, his or her own mortality. After all, it is hard to comfort the dying if the comforter is feeling fear. Through live music, restorative and releasing “practices for death”, vision mapping for end-of-life, grief and forgiveness activities, and other clinically-tested tools, participants heal their own sense of separation an isolation from life, and death.

    From this place of greater self-understanding, there is a far greater capacity for holding one another, listening attentively, being open and honest, and offering forgiveness and love. In this setting, transformational, evidence-based, caring and healing practices are taught through the Caring Science Theory of Dr. Jean Watson and Conscious Dying Principles and Practices of Tarron Estes.

    From this place of greater self-understanding, there is a far greater capacity for holding one another, listening attentively, being open and honest, and offering forgiveness and love. In this setting, transformational, evidence-based, caring and healing practices are taught through the Caring Science Theory of Dr. Jean Watson and Conscious Dying Principles and Practices of Tarron Estes.                    

    Program Results:

    1. Moving from curative care to healing care
    2. Creating vitality instead of physical exhaustion
    3. Offering supported conversations instead of challenging topics
    4. Making space for beauty-filled visions and Best Life Care plans instead of unexpressed wishes
    5. Transmuting unexpressed feelings into life satisfaction and completion

    7. Creating caring healing environments for patients and staff
    8. Create caring healing relationships that nurture self and others
    9. Creating caring communication and conversational confidence with staff, residents, patients and families regarding care choices at end of life
    10. Facilitating sharing of stories of grief, loss, miracles, mysteries and unexplainable events with family, staff, and patients

     Journey to The HeartLand: Pioneer Conference August 4-7th 2014

    Journey to The HeartLand: Pioneer Conference August 4-7th 2014

    End of Life Education and life experience for care of the dying is all but missing in our health care communities. Our Frontline caregivers who are faced with feelings of inadequacy, fear,isolation, grief and loss that goes unaddressed in their care of the dying. Today our culture continues to struggle in knowing how to be present with patients, and the families & caregivers who need support during the most vulnerable moments of life. It is our spiritual, moral  and ethical imperative to address the deeper spiritual desires and needs of those who are passing by lifting up the lives of those who care for them.

    Though 92% of people facing end of life prefer intimate, palliative, holistic care, 75% of people dying in health care settings receive Heroic/Futile care meant to save life at all costs. Though Hospice and Palliative Care teams deliver spiritual, emotional, and comforting care, too many people die without this care. To increase the number of people receiving the healing care they need to be at peace, feel complete, and guided toward their spiritual destinies, it is imperative that our frontline caregivers gain confidence as Sacred Passage Guides who inquire and offer the comforting healing care our families and friends most want and need

     

    This program offers a Sacred Approach to end of life care a that upholds individual beliefs and practices. Participants explore hopes, fears, dreams and wishes for end of life care and learn to understand and offer the comforting healing care that people need and want. The program's transformational activities increase caring healing presence; develop compassionate, vulnerable, and honest communication; attend to grief, forgiveness and intimate human needs of patients and families facing end of life. Participants share their meaning of a Sacred Passage how what they need to be Sacred Passage Guide to others.

Assisted by live music, restorative & releasing “practices for death”, vision mapping for end of life, grief and forgiveness activities, we unify our spirit, soul and body, healing our profound sense of separation and isolation experienced too often in our culture today

    In this immersion we will explore our dreams, hopes and fears surrounding death. This dialogue in both large group and pairs, restores trust in ourselves and each other, creates intimacy, builds community, openness and increases our capacity to be supportive companions at end of life within our own communities. We honor the inevitability of our mortality and  attend to the simple basic human intimate needs for holding, listening, openness, forgiveness and love. 

    The Sacred Passage Guidance Phase 1 changes end of life care by transforming caregivers.  It prepares caregivers across all settings to be authentically present, communicate with vulnerability, honesty, and compassion and administer palliative-based comfort care healing modalities to anyone, regardless of health status by focusing on improving care at the end of life.

    You will learn transformational, evidence-based, caring healing practices guided by the Caring Science Theory of Dr. Jean Watson and Conscious Dying Principles and Practices by Tarron Estes.                     

    The Phase 1 program shifts:

    • Curative care to healing care
    • Physical exhaustion to vitality
    • Undiscussable challenging topics into confidently supported conversations
    • Unexpressed wishes to beauty-filled visions and Best Life Care plans
    • Unexpressed feelings into life satisfaction and completion

    Participants will be able to:

    1. Increase beauty, pleasure, contentment

    2. Provide emotional and spiritual support

    3. Initiate conversations about dying process

    4. Practice Self Care to reduce burnout and emotional fatigue

    5. Demystify the stages of the dying process

    6. Acknowledge mysteries, miracles and unexplained events

    7. Learn How to be with intense emotions

    8. Honor other’s beliefs without them threatening your own

    9. Be a Steward of conscious death

    Who Benefits?

    The program benefits all involved in the care of life, love, family and healing. It is the preparation we need to befriend death, surrender and trust deeply in each moment, and become supportive end of life companions. We expand from expertise in clinical practices to offer comforting care people want and need most.

    Sacred Passage:  Intentional Presence with the Dying

    Friday, March 28th, 2014

    8:15 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

    “If one is interested in human behavior, in the adaptations and defenses that humans have in order to cope with stress, death is the place to learn about it. For those who seek to understand it, death is a highly creative force. The highest spiritual values of life can originate from the thought and study and death”.  Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

    This one day conference is offered by the Department of Chaplaincy & Pastoral Education, Division of Faith & Health, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, as a multi-disciplinary, inter-professional focus on the sacred journey of dying and death.Palliative Care, Hospice, Home and Long Term Care Teams will:

    • Explore their relationship to death
    • Renew their purpose and power as caring healing practitioners
    • Identify current practices offered by themselves and their institutions and/or  congregations at end of life
    • Identify best practices for healing presence for patients and families near time  of death of a loved one
    • Experience selected best practices for holistic care of patients and families
    • Experience selected best practices for practitioner self care

    Throughout the centuries caregivers have struggled to provide intimate and holistic care of the dying.  Ancient practices have proven beneficial as have the new, more current care of the dying through pain management and comfort care.    Today our culture continues to struggle in knowing how to be present and in being comfortable in that presence, with patients, and the families & caregivers who are at the bedside of the dying.  This conference invites nurses, physicians, clergy and chaplains, social workers, care coordinators, respiratory therapists, counselors, hospice practitioners, and all caregivers to spend a day in a transformative educational process for bringing the healing presence of the sacred, beauty, and quality moments to patients, families, and caregivers during the transitions of death.  This conference will invite caregivers to be authentically present, communicate with vulnerability, honesty, and compassion; as well as administer palliative-based comfort care healing modalities for improving care at the end of life.
