Despacho Ceremony

“I don’t know what I need, I just know I want to
meet this death in a sacred way”

That’s what most of my clients say when they first contact me.  And together, we find the healing medicine their souls are asking for.

Finding our way through illness or death – for ourselves or for those we love – is a profound rite of passage. These are natural processes, but they can be challenging. When we’re close to what’s happening, the pain can touch the depths of our souls. If that soul pain is not met with healing, it can last for a very long time.

Personally relevant spiritual practices and meaningful ceremonies can help us connect with our own soul wisdom, with our community, and with the larger sustaining powers of Spirit and Nature. When we  align ourselves with what we hold sacred, the strength and healing we need becomes available.

Death Midwife, Ceremonialist, and Spiritual Mentor

Healing can be found in even the most difficult situations. I would be honoured to walk with you through your experiences of illness, death or grief.

Whether you’re struggling with an unresolved death from the past, an impending or recent diagnosis or death (for yourself or someone you care about), or want to heal your relationship with death in general, I can help.

I work with healthy, ill, dying, dead, and grieving people whose spirituality is rooted in nature and community. Together, we can find the medicine your soul needs.

I live in Calgary, Canada, and I work with people in person, and by phone and Skype.
