and humans who want to listen.
The listening line is a place for folx to call and talk where they will be met with a non-medical, trained human who will hold space and witness the words of the caller.
Who has access to a safe neutral place to talk? Many times it's folx with insurance, telehealth, money or other means of privilege.
In 2019 A Sacred Passing held a 1 day conference, Une Bonne Mort,
focusing on access and old/new thought in deathcare. 6 Action Committees were created stemming from the conference. The access committee developed a community care support, in the form of a free phone line to cultivate access to care. By creating a training program in community and with community and training a large volunteer community, we hope to create access to listeners.

In this 2 part training you will grow your listening skills, discover how to engage with your triggers, and become a part of an amazing community care network.
