A Sacred Passing teaches from a community-centered framework in which all persons are witnessed and seen as valuable in their inherent worth and dignity. You are invited to come as you are with an open heart and open mind. We invite all person(s) to work together to push and expand on our shared understanding of creativity, justice, and inclusive community care.
Our courses include discussion of dominant cultural norms, implicit bias, and integrating self-accountability and justice-based frameworks into death care and companionship (doulas, death workers, community members, cultural care workers, et al) during end-of-life and after.
