Death Doula

Recommended Posts

This may interest you, although it doesn't specifically refer to death doulas.  I don't know how to embed videos anymore in this forum, but this 8 minute or so video is worth a look.


We’ve been taught to hold on to things. And in our material world, life has become a possession too - we cannot seem to let it go. It seems to have become more acceptable to "rage against the dying of the light" and fight to the bitter end, than to take stock of what life has been about and to be at peace with death. Dying is not about hanging on. It’s about letting go, reconciling, finding peace. And when we learn to do that, we learn to live life.

Filmed in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Featuring Di Lawrie.

I like her pithy, succinct and to the point comment: "we only die once, but we live every day."
