What we're about

Doulagivers Discussions on Death and Dying monthly seminar series to support and educate communities on end of life care. Following in the footsteps of the successful Death Café movement, Doulagivers is offering FREE community education regarding all things end of life. This workshop will teach participants everything to do to help a loved one through the end of life process. We will cover skills to use from the time someone gets a terminal diagnosis all the way through to grief and recovery.
“Death Cafes are a wonderful way for people to come together and discuss death in a safe and respected space. There is a strict policy that does not allow for any teaching or for leading to any specific conclusion. I have found personally that many people not only want to share their feelings regarding death, but are ready to learn all they can so that they can make empowered, informed choices for their own lives.” –Suzanne B. O’Brien RN
The Doulagivers Discussions on Death and Dying will provide such a forum.Doulagivers is leading the way in the End of Life Doula profession and movement. Held at local libraries across the country, the Doulagivers Discussions on Death and Dying will be held monthly for two-hour periods and are free of charge. They will consist of an opening question, group discussion, segment of teaching and Q&A session.
The Doulagivers Discussions on Death and Dying are run by certified Doulagivers End of Life Doulas and Doulagivers Agencies. Doulagivers are considered to be the progressive end of life experts in their communities and will be offering these free community seminars in the hope to help ensure that everyone, everywhere can have the best end of life experience possible. Learn the Skill, Change the World.
The first New York City seminar will be held at the New York Public Library on the Upper West Side of Manhatten.
