In my practice, I consider Vigil Time to be the final 1-3 days prior to death. While no one can predict with 100% accuracy when a soul will leave the body, there are indicators that medical staff generally use to know when the time is drawing near. This time of transition is incredibly sacred and can be especially challenging for loved ones and caregivers. A meaningful Vigil, offered by an experienced Doula, can be a source of immense comfort to the dying and a source of needed support for those who will be left behind. This time can be spent in whatever way feels right to you. Reading scriptures, meditating, praying, playing music, reminiscing with family and friends, or simply sitting in contemplative silence and holding space for the nature of the sacred transition unfolding before us. When the time of death is imminent, I will hold sacred space and help guide you and your loved ones through the dying process. I will help those left behind to process the loss, hold space for their grief and attend to your body in the manner you've requested. Because death follows no Earthly schedule, I ask that you please book a Discovery Call, free of charge. During that phone call we can discuss your Bedside Vigil Needs. All of my Doula and Vigil work is exchanged on a Sliding Scale basis. I never want finances to be a burden to receiving dignified care at end-of life. Please contact me to discuss an exchange arrangement that serves all involved. I am more than willing, and available, to travel anywhere in the US to guide you and your family through a Bedside Vigil. All travel costs to be paid by client/family.
I value your time, and I will do everything in my power to keep all scheduled appointments and to arrive to our appointments at the scheduled time. If something comes up and you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, please do your best to give me 24 hours notice, whenever possible. I appreciate your respect of my time.
