Death is not a failure of the health-care system; it is not a failure of our ability to intend, pray, or love. Death is a natural part of the cycle of life, and each of us will someday experience this passage. When the time comes, most of us would prefer ourselves and our loved ones to die at home rather than in a facility. Melody has midwifed the deaths of her mother, her younger sister, her 17 year old son, and four of her best friends. In this class, you’ll learn how to prepare a space for the profound transition of death, how to encourage the dying person to be in charge of his/her own experience, how to begin your own grief-work, and how to stay in balance as you assist in a grace-filled, profound transition.
