Event description

Description

The Holistic Death Care Gathering is a series of community events bringing folks together that are interested in alternative approaches to death, dying and grief. The goal of these Gatherings is to nurture a community of care and to provide a local platform to share knowledge, resources and learning opportunities. Hosted by Shauna Janz, MA, each meeting will be an opportunity to connect with others and to learn from a speaker on a particular aspect of holistic death care.

Please bring any cards, flyers and information about your own offerings/services for the community networking table. There will also be books to purchase that are relevant to the speaker's topic (best paid by cash), and a lending library you can participate in.

We welcome Sachi Tamura to speak at this November Gathering.

About Sachi:

Sachi is a teacher and student of meditation at the Bodhichitta Kadampa Buddhist Centre. Last year she offered a well-attended day course titled “A Buddhist Perspective on Death”. For over three decades Sachi has helped provide end-of-life support to family members, friends and neighbours who have had a wish to die at home. In 2016 she completed the Beyond Hospice training program for Death Midwives and Home Funeral Guides. She supports activities offered through the Canadian Integrated Network for Death Education and Alternatives (CINDEA).

A background as an augmentative communication consultant, facilitating communication for those who are not able to speak, has contributed to Sachi’s role in death midwifery. Careful listening and a willingness to explore options best describe this work.
