What is a Death Doula?

Naomi is a certified death doula - someone who supports, advocates for, and travels with others to achieve their "good death." 

Naomi has a practice in Ketchum, Idaho working with actively dying people. Please contact Naomi to find out more about these services.

Beyond that, however, Naomi believes in the transformational power of bringing the exploration, inner work, and spiritual/ritual process of dying to those who may not be actively dying, but who are in various processes of transition in their lives - including the larger great work of our generation: to transition ourselves out of a crumbling, toxic culture and into regenerative one that can heal us forward to a more beautiful future.
