Thank you for visiting the Sacred Dying website. We are in a time of reflection and transition. Our founder, Dr. Megory Anderson, died January 17, 2019, after suffering a stroke several weeks earlier. Megory died with grace & peace, in the company of those sitting vigil.

Our hearts are heavy as we adjust to the loss of this most precious teacher and friend. She inspired so many. Our plan is to continue her work, and we are in the process of determining how best to protect the integrity of her legacy while doing all we can to share the wisdom and compassion in her life’s work.
