What exactly is an End of Life/Death Doula?
A Death Doula (also, Death Midwife) is a non-medical person, who supports the passing of life between the medical field and funeral home business as a spiritual, practical and emotional guide.
Virtual Offerings During COVID 19 Times...
*Live or recorded guided meditation with the hospitalized &/or loved ones afar
*Preparations and ideas for virtual end of life services at home (group or individual)
*Breathwork & meditation in honoring life, loss, transformation & groundedness
*Virtual guided ceremony thru zoom or facetime *Music and conversation of comfort
*Grief & loss support through companionship (Tara is not a certified counselor/therapist)
Are you offering any in person work? Not in a medical or care facility. However, if you are local to Tara or can travel to Tara in person, support for small groups or outdoor offerings/ ceremonies might align. This is dependent on covid19 guidelines and comfort levels of all. The above mentioned is subject to change at any point in time.
Are you certified? Yes, I received a death Doula certification through Earth Traditions December 2019, who is one of the nation's leading death Doula certification programs weaving in spiritual guidance, conscious care and emotional support to end of life passages. Earth Traditions specifically teaches their death Doula students to help guide
in choices at end of life.
Do you offer religious services? I consider my offerings to be mindfully, emotionally and spiritually connected. Growing up Christian in the Greek Orthodox church, being a level 4 certified Tantra guide, having studied years of meditation, energy wellness work and am currently in a 2 year earth based ministry program, my offerings and ceremonies respect all beliefs. Offering death and grieving meditation with mindfulness to prepare of end of life and/ or grieve the loss of a loved one is my specialty.
Will you make burial arrangements for me or a loved one? No. However I can suggest different options in helping you choose. There are typically more choices in body deposition than what is presented at a funeral home.
Do you offer pet loss support and ceremonies? Yes, 100%. Helping our beloved pets cross their bridge or honoring them in spirit ceremonies is just as important as human lives. I have beautifully written ceremony samples to choose from.
Have you worked remotely before? Yes, with the birth of Earth Tantra in 2016, I've worked virtually with clients. This includes private sessions, virtual retreats, small groups and over 18 virtual courses. Virtual support can include phone, zoom, facetime, skype or other.
What are your fees?
A complimentary discovery session is required first to see if our energies align, and what you are seeking in a guide is what I'm able to provide. Virtual private sessions (with no ceremony) are $69 per hour for emotional and spiritual guidance for the passing and/ or grieving loved ones. Ceremony offerings depend on location, time, virtual, group, etc. All pet ceremonies begin at $79 in Ouray & Ridgway. Travel fees outside Ouray, & Ridgway apply.
If you are alone or are seeking a death companion, we can also talk about this arrangement as well.
