I recently had the opportunity to chat with Bernadine Fox, of Vancouver Coop Radio.
We explored the role of the Death Doula and how important they are in the health and well-being of those facing end of life, their caregivers and loved ones. A relatively new, yet "old" profession, the Death Doula supports you in defining a good life ... and a good death on your terms. My focus as a Death Doula is to support you in living well to die well - on your terms.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with From Chaos to Peace with Conny Graf.
We explored Life, Death, and Clutter, and we agreed that end-of-life planning can remove both the emotional and physical clutter that people will otherwise experience when they aren't prepared for their own end of life.
Listen as we share personal stories, talk about the gift of love that comes from including decluttering as part of your end-of-life planning.
I hope this podcast encourages you to start your end of life planning from the typical legal paperwork, advance care and comfort plans, those courageous conversations, AND decluttering. Let decluttering of your emotional and physical "stuff" become one of the greatest gifts you leave your loved ones.
If you find this podcast valuable ... please share it with your friends and family ... because they will find it valuable too.
Happy listening ...
In the midst of this pandemic Jules Taylor decided to do some research on Death, and discovered two girls , co-founders of The Death Doula Network of BC. He invited us to have a chat - and of course we said YES!
We talked about the emerging role of the Death Doula, society's discomfort with death and the impact in this pandemic, PLUS the importance of talking about it, the #1 regret at end of life, and how the more comfortable we get with our own mortality, the more INSPIRED we are as we're called to ACTION to live and love more fully right now, TODAY!
