In our generation, people are reclaiming how we make meaning for the end of our days. No longer are you limited to a sterile hospital environment or a chemical laden funeral industry. And most importantly, you can be the one to decide how to reflect on your life, both as you review it and in how you want to be remembered.
End of Life Doulas (as well as ministers and chaplains) work with families, and individuals, to make meaning through legacy projects; creating rituals for before, during and after the active dying process; supporting the family during the active dying stage; and helping the family initiate the grief process.
- Rev. Gevurtz is a member of INELDA (the International End of Life Doula Association), and has taken their training in addition to her training as a minister and chaplain.
- As a minister, she can also assist the family through the journey from death, funeral, interment and creating a grief container which will carry the family to their new life, without the deceased (on the physical plane).
- As a spiritual director, she can help those mourning to explore the way grief and change invite us on a journey of self.
