Lunch and learn series (registration required)
Topic: The Role of a Death Doula
Presenter: Jana Brogan, death doula and end-of-life care specialist
Death is a natural and inevitable part of life yet it is something western culture has forgotten how to do. Showing up, being present and holding space with death is not easy but it is worthwhile. This is something that used to happen at the community level as well as within the family. An important aspect of being a Death Doula is reintroducing this concept to modern society and helping people reconnect to a natural innate process, empowering those actively dying and the people who love them.
Jana Brogan is a Death Doula certified in Contemplative End of Life Care. She received her certification through the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Toronto where she is also studying Therapeutic Clinical Herbal Medicine.
