What is Conscious Dying: End of life Coaching?
Unlike End of Life Doula work which focuses being bedside with patients to support them and their families on the last weeks, days, of life, End-of-life coaching helps a person discern what would be most important to them in the last 3 months of their life, how these insights might change the way they are currently living, and what concrete steps they could take to live more in alignment with their priorities in all 5 domains of life:
Spiritual: Honoring Beliefs and Practices
Emotional: Grief, Forgiveness, Healing Relationships
Physical: Comforting Care of body and Healing Enviornment
Life Purpose Review: Gleaning Life’s Meaning
Practical After Death Care: Care of the Body and Family After Death
Many people find it hard to talk about critical illness and dying, leaving conversations and life priorities unsaid and unexplored. Skillful end-of-life coaching opens up conversations about how to live more intentionally and how we want to die more consciously.
End of life Coaching is a conversational, relational journey—a change and discovery process that opens our awareness and expands our choices, focusing our attention, hearts, minds and actions on “what matters most NOW”. It is attentive to the multiple wisdoms of body, psyche, and soul. It places primary importance on an intuitive wholeness- whole living and whole dying.
An effective end of life coaching relationship empowers us to encounter life fully through to the end. A Conscious Dying Coach encourages, supports, offers respect, openness, compassion, empathy, and a holds a rigorous commitment to speaking the truth. A end of life coach holds and supports those facing end of life to demystify the stages of the dying process, realize the disillusionment of form to formlessness (dis-soul-loosen-ment) inherent in the dying process, allowing space to identify and implement their deepest heart’s desires within remaining time on earth so that what matters most comes into being before they die.
In Conscious Dying Coaching, a vision of new possibilities is created, with clear goals that are achievable and client-centered, followed by small action steps that help connect the present to the future. So a coach helps you imagine a greater possibility beyond advance directives, medical, technical and curative care—and then supports you in achieving a conscious death a defined by the person who is facing end of life. End of Life Coaching helps you get from an unsatisfying current reality to a life-fulfilling vision through your last months. Our End of Life coaching is compassionate, behavior-based and action-oriented. We set action steps to implement desires. The discovery and exploration is vital, but end of life priorities discovered happen only with focused desired outcomes and action steps.
This is a life-changing exploration for anyone wishing to live fully NOW!
The self-development of the coach is also a key differentiator in our program. We do our own deep dive in order to be fully present with others in potentially challenging conversations about dying. The certificate course gives students the coaching structure, community experience, personal development and coaching tools they need to befriend death and to inquire and deeply connect with what people want most during critical illness and death."
The course is open to nursing, clinical, healing arts, legal/para legal, and counseling professionals; family caregivers, life coaches, and the public at large. It is appropriate for anyone wishing to increase love, care, healing, and life fulfillment before, during, nearing, and after death. It is a program for anyone wishing to educate the public and serve families and patients during this powerful healing portal surrounding death.
The “Best Three Months: Conscious Dying End of Life Coach Certificate” program begins with a 3-day, on-site workshop. The on-site training supports students via transformational, experiential practices that strengthen authentic presence and loving kindness, restores innate healing gifts and talents, renews purpose, and restores the art of care giving to a spiritual path. This training and the interactive life changing activities provided by Tarron Estes increases one’s capacity to be emotionally and spiritually supportive during this vulnerable and, sometimes turbulent, period of life.
Our transformatoinal end of life coaching program expands your capacity to offer care and healing within the Sacred Circle of Life. By entering this life-enriching, end-of-life coaching certificate program in Conscious Dying Care, students engage in a new praxis of holistic end-of-life education and conversation.Together we can restore death to its sacred place in the beauty, mystery, and celebration of life, thus joining a culture of End of Life Coaches whose caring, healing presence and inner transformation awaken human consciousness.
Upon enrollment, you will engage with Online Educational Resources Modules and CDI Faculty online mentors. You will have Zoom conference meetings with Faculty and peers. The online resources prepare you to understand the basis for your work as a Conscious Dying Coach. These will be completed prior to the 3 day onsite.
The online Education Resources include content from the country’s leader, Tarron Estes, in Conscious Dying Education-its sacred values and principles, and from Dr. Jean Watson in Caring Science as Scared Science.
Over the three months following the on-site training event, students take part in a virtual practicum called “Best Three Months: End of Life Coaching and Care”. They work with student partners and community individuals to learn how to identify, understand, and implement end-of life-priorities in 5 domains of life: Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, Purpose and Practical. In this way, participants learn about what matters most to themselves, as well as to patients and their families, within the context of a “3 months to live” timeline. They engage with readings, resources, and reflective activities from the field of Caring Science as Sacred Science and Conscious Dying Healing Care.
What is “Best Three Months”? (B3M)
The Best Three Months Process goes Beyond Advance Directives
The "Best Three Months" is one of the most powerful end-of-life care and planning processes available. It goes beyond advance directives and beyond what we don't want during our dying time; it focuses on how we live our lives before, during, and after death. Students learn the 5 Domains of Life: Individual & Family Coaching model and group facilitation practices which focuses on identifying and implementing our most important life priorities within a 3 month-to-life time frame.
By going through the "Best Three Months" practicum, students establish a strong foundation to foster integration of the 10 Conscious Dying Principles from Tarron Estes. It gives students an opportunity to synthesize all they have learned in this course so that as graduates, they can increase the number of people who receive the end-of-life care that they want and need, no matter the setting.
Our Conscious Dying Coaches learn the "Best Three Months" coaching model in preparation to listen deeply and implement the things people hold most precious in their hearts and minds.
