Drawing on the wisdom of nature-based spirituality, Sarah designs and facilitates ceremonies that help her clients and their families to integrate experiences of illness, death and loss. These rituals honour the spiritual significance of what’s happening, and bring healing to the living and the dying and the dead. Sarah has a PhD in Transformative Learning, and a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies.
Her doctoral research explored the ways that modern western people can restore and re-create meaningful rituals for the significant transitions of life. She has been a student of spiritual and shamanic healing modalities since 2000, and a full-time death doula since 2012. As a teacher and mentor to emerging death doulas, Sarah supports her students to find the unique healing gift they carry and to make it available to their communities. She facilitates private and public healing rituals, and regularly presents on topics related to holistic death care.
