What We Do
Since 1996, Sacred Dying has led the field in spiritual and religious care for the dying. We offer vigil training, teaching, and consulting around the world, including the United Kingdom, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the US. In addition, we are able to offer counseling internationally, and vigiling within the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our priority and focus will always be those who are dying, but now is the time to expand our work to programs. It takes a village to care for the dying, and we want to equip faith communities, hospices, hospitals, nursing homes, and all the places where our dying need us to vigil with them. Join us.
Sacred Dying trainers come to your hospice, hospital, church or temple, to help set up the Sacred Dying Vigil Program. We will train your volunteers and assist you in making this program just right for your community.
Sacred Dying staff are experts in End of Life issues. We speak at conferences, lead workshops, teach courses at universities and colleges, preach in congregations, and offer keynote addresses.
Organizations often need information before they decide to bring the Vigil Program to their community. Sacred Dying is available for consultations, either in person or via phone or Skype.
People at the end of life - or their loved ones - deserve an opportunity to ask questions and express their concerns. Sacred Dying offers one-on-one counseling sessions, via phone or Skype, for short periods of time.
While most of our work is concentrated in teaching others how to vigil, there are times when our staff and advisors are asked to vigil with people in the San Francisco Bay Area who are in need.
