Home Death Care Education
Oct 16-18th in Calgary
For the few days between death and burial or cremation, families have the option to care for their deceased loved one's body at home. In the tradition of home birth and home schooling, families are reclaiming funerals as an important ritual and rite of passage.
Attend a lecture or film, or weekend workshop and learn about your options.
I’m Sarah, and I’d be honoured to walk with you and your loved ones through an experience of illness, death or loss.
Whether you’re struggling with a life-limiting diagnosis, or an impending or recent death of any sort, I can help.
I support healthy, ill, dying, dead, and grieving people to meet death with an open heart. Together, we can find the medicine your souls need.
Please get in touch if your family or community is dealing with death and needs help integrating it.
Sarah Kerr, PhD
Death Midwife and Celebrant
I live in Calgary, Canada, and I work with people in person, and by phone or Skype.
"Sarah’s down to earth, even though she’s also in touch with the spiritual realm in a way that most of us aren’t. And she’s able to go back and forth and bring people into that realm with her."
What's a death midwife?
The birth midwifery movement brought birth home and made it a more intimate, family-focussed experience. Death midwifery is doing the same, reclaiming death as a meaningful and sacred transition, for the dying person and those around them.
As a death midwife, I help you navigate in unfamiliar territory. I offer a stable presence when your life is turned upside down and you don't know where to turn or what to do. I facilitate conversations, gatherings, and rituals that help you and your family integrate the emotional, spiritual, and relational transformations that death brings.
