This is a gentle reminder; death is part of our life cycle. We are all joined together in this way all across the world. With death nudging us it gives us the motivation to live the best we can every day.
As we get older, we think about the inevitable a little more. If you are diagnosed with a life limiting illness it may be all you think about. Conversations about death can alleviate fears about your future. You don't have to be alone with these thoughts. You can reach a feeling of peace and readiness.
Nature also connects people all across the earth after all, we are nature too. My business is named, Tree Rings, for many reasons. As tree rings indicate the age of a tree, show us environmental conditions and all the seasons it's lived through, it resonates with me the relevance to the end of life of people.
Tree Rings, is a dedication to my dad, who lives on in my heart, who worked in the bush his whole adult life to provide for his family. Through his devotion, he earned the 'rings' in his hard-worked, weathered skin.
It is a tribute to my hometown, Thunder Bay and it's gorgeous surrounding treed area. To all who bathe in the trees through our love for camping, mountain biking, hiking, gardening, visiting the parks, finding reprieve in the shade, and country living.
A Death Doula also know as an End of Life Doula (EOL Doula), supports a person emotionally, practically, spiritually, and non-medically, along with their family and/or nearest and dearest during a person’s dying process as well as before and after.
I offer support to people in their end of life stage or older adults who would like to remain in their home.
I can provide personal care and vital time for caregivers to rest, all the while guiding transformative conversations in preparing and planning for a magnificent death.
