"We have to remember that people are living until their last breath."
Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
End-of-Life Doulas, Death Doulas or Death Midwives are trained professionals or volunteers who guide and support the dying based on a new approach the International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA) is providing. Through their efforts, and their training, the idea of a "good death" is seeping into our collective consciousness.
The conversation surrounding death, and how were care for, and how we can best support and serve the dying has evolved in mainstream society. Based on the model of Birth Doulas, INELDA, is training End-of-Life Doulas to focus on exploring life meaning, bringing a sense of reverence to the atmosphere around a dying person, and creative attention to maintaining the best quality of life up until the last breath.
INELDA is offering a 22-hour End-of-Life Doula training in Indianapolis, IN November 4 - 6, 2016. Students will learn how to explore meaning through legacy, how to become a deep active listener, how to create and conduct guided visualization, how to help a dying person and their family plan for the atmosphere around the bedside, and how to use touch, music, reading, and ritual to enrich the final days.
This training is open to all who are interested in learning about the role of End-of-Life Doulas. No previous hospice or medical experience is required. This training will be a transformative weekend filled with deep, meaningful work.
