A class for death doulas, end-of-life professionals, and everyday mortals
With Sarah Kerr, PhD
Sept 29th, 4-6pm Mountain Time
Life’s Big Questions
Does anyone really know what happens after we die?
No. That’s the nature of the Mystery.
But humans are meaning-making creatures; we look for models to help navigate the challenges in our lives.
Each cultural and spiritual tradition has its own map of life and death. Each person has their own perspective and experiences. Some say there’s nothing. Some say there’s something.
This class says there’s something. And it offers a cohesive map of that landscape.
This is important because the journey is much easier if we know where we’re going.
Trust Your Intuition and Experiences
Do you have a sense that part of us continues after our bodies die, but don’t really understand how it works?
Have you had a mystical or “inexplicable” experience as someone you cared for was dying?
Do you connect with your dead through dreams, intuition, or physical signs that might be dismissed as coincidence?
Have you had a near death or past life experience, or do you resonate with the stories of those who have?
These feelings and experiences are normal. And, while we don’t talk much about them, they’re also very common.
Just ask a hospice nurse. Or a funeral director. Or any 3 of your friends.
Non-ordinary experiences around death feel true in our hearts and souls. But we also need a framework that allows them to make sense in our minds.
A Spiritual Map of Life, Death, and Beyond
Informed by nature-based spirituality and modern consciousness research, this class offers a practical and spiritual map of what happens before we’re born and after we die.
The map provides:
• A framework for understanding the non-ordinary experiences that happen around death and dead people
Rather than being random, isolated events, they become part of a larger, coherent structure.
• A picture of what happens as someone makes the journey from this side of the veil to the other
If we know how death works, we can cooperate with the process and facilitate healing for the living, the dying, and the dead.
• A way to understand our lives as aspects of a larger, unfolding spiritual journey
When we can hold suffering and heartbreak as part of our soul’s ongoing evolution, the unbearable becomes more bearable.
With a good map, we can find a healing path, even through difficult times.
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.
The material in What Happens After We Die? is the core of how I support the people I work with. It helps them understand death and loss in a whole new way, and gives them tools to meet mortality with more grace and confidence.
My hope is that it will do the same for you, your loved ones, and your clients.
