Imagine death as a celebration. A rite of passage.

A sojourn from this life into the unknown. An adventure. Death is a natural progression of things. Death is more than just a medical event, it is an opportunity for us to mend ourselves and our relationships.  A gift for the growth of our souls and the health of our lineage. Growth doesn’t happen in our comfort zone, it happens in the edges. Death is a time of edges.  

 Sweet Living is a family and individual mentorship, specifically curated to you and your families needs and intentions upon receiving a terminal diagnosis and facing the great FEARS of end of life.  This program combines emotional and spiritual support, guidance and education for death preparation, grieving, forgiveness, legacy work, bereavement and after death care.  Together we will work to create an intimate and safe container where confusion and heavy emotions are held with fierce compassion.  Education, ritual, and holistic comforting practices move you from grief to grace.  Space is made for the full spectrum of emotions by soothing the central nervous system to allow all emotions to be gently experienced.
