Kathleen Moore will present an overview of insights from attending the Death Doula, Showing up for Death, Nourishing the World Conference.
Kathleen Moore will share insights learned from Ram Dass, Stephen Jenkinson, Bohdi Be, and many other very wise people at the April Death Doula Conference.
“WHAT IS A DEATH DOULA?” you might ask. It is being with the dying. It is knowing how to be quiet inside. It is being of service to the family. It is one of the most sacred things we can do. Just as the birth of each new human being is sacred, so too is the passage, the birthing, of a soul out of their body. Join us for an exploration and informative time together as we learn more about the role of being a Death Doula.
Kathleen Moore has attended the deaths of many throughout her life. She faced her own death at age 10 when she developed Type 1 diabetes. She became a child therapist in the schools, then opened her private practice over 30 years ago. She worked many years at The Dougy Center for grieving children and families. Kathleen has facilitated many grief groups, as well as individual grief sessions. Death is a very natural extension of her love of life.
“The spiritual heart is the doorway to soul, which is the doorway to Soul-land,
that’s where I want to be. It’s like Disneyland for the soul.” — Ram Dass
“Na’ou – the gut feeling. Hawaiians put big importance on our inner knowing.” — Bohdi Be
“Most people fear they’ll be in intense pain [when they are dying], but in reality, only very
few die that way…. Suffering and beauty are the two basic principles humans have capacity
to bring more life to us.” — Stephen Jenkinson
