Those who are called to the healing path of End of Life Doula know that they will see life and death in all its fullness in their service to those at end of life. End of Life Doulas offer their presence in witnessing all of life's gifts and challenges, the suffering and the healing, the learning and the surrender.
Cultivating the skill of being present is a foundational practice in our End of Life Doula program. And it's the worlds most versitile skill. Offering one's precence is an incredible gift, in all circumstances. It's not just for end of life care. We resonated with this article from the New York Times, The Art of Presence. It's a beautiful reminder that "most people need presence" and "non-verbal expressions of love are as healing as eloquence".
