At one time in all cultures the dying process was seen as a sacred event, alive with meaningful rituals and a connection to a transpersonal reality. Our western industrialized society has submerged that sense of the sacred beneath a heavy techno-medical layer of chemical treatments, statistical measurements and probabilities. But the sacred is beginning to seep through again with a renewed openness to the spiritual dimension of life. The End-of-Life Doula work begun 10 years ago is devoted to returning sacredness to the dying process. Henry Fersko-Weiss will talk about the various ways the doula work focuses on the sacred and a look at how it is transforming the final days of life.
