Finding Peace in Passing: Death Doulas and Death Cafés
Past Event

Celebrating the life lived

This discussion will be lead by Death Doulas, Julie Dain and Lashanna Williams, as they share what it means to celebrate the life lived rather than grieving the life lost.

Death Doulas cultivate empowered passing by helping their clients create peace, closure, and acceptance. By curating the ending of one’s story, these doulas help to dispel the fear of “what comes next” while imagining a better death.
