We all die.
But there are good death journey’s and less good journey’s . Given the choice, most of us hope to die pain free,
at home, with our loved ones around us.
Unfortunately not many of us actually achieve this. Most modern deaths are, at best, efficient but clinical.
They can be institutionalised, functional and soulless.
Soul midwives try to ensure that death is a dignified and peaceful experience. A smooth and loving transition.
In many cultures around the world, death has always been regarded as an important rite of passage,
an initiation, a journey across a spiritual threshold. Modern soul midwives are able to draw on
these ancient skills and traditions, applying them to our modern world and using
them to ease the passage of those who are dying.
A good death is an extraordinary, moving and sacred experience.
It can also have a healing quality, not only for the person who is involved, but for their families,
friends and the wider community.
