Inspired Endings invites you to attend a unique Death Doula training on the Big Island. Join us for a 6-day retreat in one of the most visually stunning and spiritually nourishing places on earth.
We teach the Death Doula model of care with a focus on providing non-medical, physical, spiritual, and emotional support. We encourage you to arrive with your gifts that you will weave into the skill sets that we offer. We come together in deep reverence for the time in our human life cycle that we call dying and death. We meet this instinctual knowing in community through ritual and connection.
Psychedelic journeying (legal use of ketamine under the care of Dr. Charlotte Charfen and her medical team) sessions during our time together offer the opportunity for deep inner investigation into our most intimate relationship with life, death, nature, joy, grief and the Great Mystery. https://charlottecharfen.com/ketamine/
This training will give you the confidence, knowledge, and skills necessary to provide compassionate care for those at the end of life as well as their chosen families and others who love and care form them. You will practice building capacity in order to bear witness and hold space for the wildness of death. This patient centered care is based on the goals and values of the patient including what is spiritually and culturally significant.
This special training for women only is the first in a series that will guide participants in how to sit, hold respectful space, for an individual who is taking psychedelics in order to find a place of peace with dying, an experience that we will all have. We believe this should be woven into the future of palliative care. We do this safely under the guidance of Dr. Charfen and her medical team.
We have infused this training with material that arose as a result of the intense education received during the pandemic, witnessing global grief and the Black Lives Matter movement. The result was a magnified view of the deep fractures in our health care and death care delivery systems which exposed the inequalities in support services which has a disproportionate affect on marginalized and underserved communities.
