Ritual practices for healing and connection
It’s heartbreaking, when someone you love is dying, and you can’t be at their bedside.
Lockdowns and closed borders can mean, that a physical level, we can’t visit and care for our dying person. But we’re more than physical beings. We’re also spiritual beings. We can connect at a spiritual level, through ritual practices.
You want to support them, but without tools for working at a distance, it’s hard to know what to do.
Rituals, like prayers, offerings, and other ‘acts of consciousness’ are tools for focusing and directing energy on behalf of a healing intention. Their power isn’t measured by what we perceive with the 5 physical senses, but in the depth of focus and feeling we bring to them, and by the sincerity of our relationships with the healing powers.
In the time just before and after a death, the veil between the worlds thins. The bonds that hold the physical world together loosen slightly, as the spiritual world reaches across to collect and welcome the dying person. Spiritual healing interventions, which don’t depend on physical interaction, can support this process.
Learn distance healing techniques to care for your loved one, before and after they die.
- Learn how the body and soul release each other at death, and how you can gently support that process, even from a distance.
- Discover a set of simple but powerful ritual healing practices for the deathbed and afterwards, and the confidence to apply them as they’re needed.
Dying people are in the process of leaving their bodies, so their consciousness is more attuned to the subtle realms. Spiritual and distance healing practices operate at those subtle frequencies and they offer a powerful but gentle way to support this process.
Caring for our loved ones as they die doesn’t stop with their last breath.
Part of our gift to them is to support them as they leave their bodies, and as they begin the journey to the other side.
Instructor: Sarah Kerr, PhD
I’ve been a ritual healing practitioner, death doula, and trainer since 2012. I have a doctorate in Transformative Learning and I’ve been a student of spiritual and systemic healing practices since 1999.
I help dying people and their families connect with each other and with the innate wisdom of the dying process.
My clients and students understand that death and loss are important parts of their spiritual journey, but they don’t have a spiritual map to guide them through these challenging experiences. I bring a map rooted in energy medicine, systems thinking, sacred sciences and ancient wisdom traditions.
I train death doulas and other end-of-life professionals in a comprehensive healing methodology that aligns with deep patterns in the archetypal structure of the dying process. The approach utilizes diagnostic and prescriptive ritual tools and offers healing interventions which can be adapted to each client’s unique spiritual values.
I’m excited to share the material in Caring, Death, and Loss in a Pandemic with you. I’ve seen how powerfully these ritual tools can support us as we navigate death and loss in these difficult times. My hope is that they will be of service to you, your loved ones, and your clients.
