End-of-Life & Home Funeral Guide

Donna works with individuals and groups about the death and dying topic. This takes different forms depending on what people need and want.

  • educating families and groups through workshops on how to care for their loved ones after death by offering guidance for at-home vigils and home funerals
  • general informational sessions where Donna will answer questions and help provide direction
  • facilitating end-of-life conversations, and ceremonies before someone dies as a way to honor a person before death
  • helping a person define what their  ‘good death’ looks like, and supporting them with tools and practices to achieve that
