The Dying Well Collective is a group of end-of-life-care practitioners, healers, educators, and therapists who support, educate, and advocate for those who are dying and their families.
We all have end-of-life care training. Many of us are also therapists. Together we offer our services, support and desire to help those that are terminally ill and preparing to die and their families. We are your advocate.
We all will die. It is a certainty. We don't know how or when, but we know it will happen. And when we are faced with this certainty, we have choices to make in how we live our days. These are our choices to make.
We love…life. We see the beauty in the cracks in the wall. We know that there is more to death than the final breath.
We believe…that everyone has the right to die well, to die with dignity, surrounded by love and loved ones, and in whatever way they choose.
We are committed to…serving those who are dying and their families on this path of living and dying well.

We heard more than once during our training that it takes a special kind of person to do this work, this end of life care work. Now, we gather as a collective in small communities, in the heart of big cities, and across the country. We bare witness to the end of life and all of its power of pain, love, tenderness and compassion. Our role is to educate, to support, to witness, to do what is needed.
