As a deathwalker (Soul Midwife/Death Doula), I provide guidance and support to individuals and their families during this unique phase of life. My services start with practical assistance to navigate through this special time. I delicately address arising worries and fears and facilitate communication between the dying and their loved ones.
As an experienced anchor in the background, I offer a stable and calm presence. I provide a willingness to converse and space for shared silence. I can discern when seriousness is needed or when laughter is the best medicine. I also create a space to confront emerging fears together. Drawing from my experience, I offer a calming and accepting presence during any altered states of consciousness that may occur and assist in bridging the gap between the affected individuals and their families.
I am also here to support you in addressing any pressing spiritual questions that might arise. Whether it's reflections on the past, life reviews, questions of forgiveness, matters of purpose, or inquiries about the unknown, the self, the soul, or the afterlife.
Naturally and serenely, I guide you through tumultuous phases and aid family members in integration, even through the grieving process and beyond.
Here are a few examples of possible offers of help:
- Presence and willingness to converse, as an experienced calm anchor in the backround, before, during and after the finale phase
- Improving communication through mediating conversations between the dying and loved ones: articulating the seemingly inexpressible to help say whatever wants to be said
- Help to cope with fear, anxiety and panic through presence, conversation and touch
- Support in solving difficult questions about the proportionality of medical options and questions of quality of life
- Support in clarifying important spiritual and life questions
- Help for the dying and their relatives to integrate unusual states of consciousness and experiences in the context of the dying process and the mourning period (e.g. after-death contacts, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences)
- Night watch: Do you need company at night when no family member or nurse is present, or do you suffer from restlessness and anxiety at night? Or are you (caregiving) relatives of a seriously ill or dying family member and need free time for an evening with friends or colleagues, or just a break? The presence of a night watch keeps company in the dark hour, even for a chat when everyone else is asleep. Relatives find the peace and security they need to pursue their own important social contacts outside of the care situation, or simply to be able to sleep a little better.
- Ritual Work. Help to find your own ritual of the farewell and to cope with the grief
- Walks “to get some fresh air” and to literally give more space to thoughts, any feelings that arise and of course grief in the presence of a person of trust, while walking together.
Every dying is different, and so the needs of each person affected and their relatives are individual and very different. Talk to me and we'll find out if and how I can help you.
