Mindfulness-Based End-of-Life Consultation and Companionship
Starting at any stage of adult development, moving mindfully toward death can infuse the life we have available to us right now with greater poignancy and joy. Sarah Jane is a certified end-of-life doula (aka "death doula") and mindfulness facilitator with a mission to companion folks who are living with a terminal diagnosis or approaching the end of life, as well as their families. From one-time virtual consultation to regular in-person visits, Sarah Jane encourages peace and meaning at the end of life. She sensitively and respectfully assists in the following ways:
Companioning by reading, walking, listening, holding silence, or guiding meditation or gentle movement
Developing legacy projects, from recording life reviews to making photo albums to editing memoirs
Providing resources for alternative death care options and green burial
Planning a home vigil, including setting up an environment and communicating desired visitor protocols
Serving as a steady presence and resource for family members who may feel anxious or uncertain
Each person's end-of-life needs and wishes, and the types of support welcomed by their families, are unique. Therefore, each doula-client relationship and arrangement is unique. Please contact Sarah Jane to schedule a phone call and begin a discussion.
