A practical and compassionate guide to physically, emotionally, and spiritually caring for the dying
Death doula educator Anne-Marie Keppel shows how anyone can mindfully care for the dying, whether at home, in hospice, or in the ICU. She presents practices for emotional soothing and anxiety relief, techniques to physically care for the dying, and ceremony and energetic boundary guidelines for nourishing and healing on a spirit level.
Just as we might prepare a nest for one about to give birth, so can we lovingly prepare a nest for one who is dying.
In this practical and compassionate guide, death doula educator Anne-Marie Keppel incorporates ancient and modern techniques, mindfulness practices, and herbal support to show how anyone can care for the dying, whether at home, in hospice, or even in the ICU. She demystifies the dying process by explaining what the body goes through during end of life and presents practices for emotional soothing and other ways to reduce stress and anxiety during the active dying process. The author provides techniques to physically care for the dying, including methods to assist bedridden individuals. She shares ceremony and energetic boundary guidelines, Reiki and ancestral support techniques, and herbal care for nourishing and healing on a spirit level.
Providing support for caregivers and loved ones as well, Anne-Marie explores self-care methods for moving with grief, ideas for “things to do” when there is nothing to do, and mindfulness practices for contemplating your own mortality. She also offers visualizations and techniques for talking with children about death and dying.
Sharing glimpses into the world of spirit to reveal the poignancy of the dying process, the author shows that death is a sacred rite of passage we all experience.
