Interview: About Our Work on "Beyond Theory"

What is Community-Centered Deathcare?

We are a growing group of community practitioners who support and practice holistic deathcare in a number of different ways.

We are end-of-life doulas, grief counselors, art therapists, massage therapists, and home funeral guides. Many of us offer services on a sliding scale and all of us combine our community-centered deathcare practice with other services such as volunteer hospice work, guided meditation, celebrant services, yoga and body work, and photography. 

We are dedicated to helping the living understand options and rights in death and dying. We want to reclaim death as a sacred event and we want to empower families to take back the traditions of home deathcare through our guidance and with the support of local resources.
