2019 Audio – Emily Ruff- Sacred Passage: Compassionate Care at the End of Life

$10.00

Our culture’s glorification of youth discourages healthy discourse around death, and often leaves us ill-equipped to address the complexities of end of life, when our own family faces loss or when it touches our herbal practice. This class will explore how we, as herbalists, can better support our loved ones during the end of life process. We will discuss physical and emotional care of the dying and the surviving family and friends, the art of holding sacred space while protecting our energy and practical strategies of providing support and care. Herbal allies and holistic tools will be highlighted as part of a framework for bringing beauty and grace to the last season of life.
