Sacred Journey of Conscious Dying

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - February 18 @ 6:30 pm PST

Sacred Journey of Conscious Dying

How Can You Bring More Ease, Grace, and Love into the Dying Process?

Most of us have very little experience and understanding of the End of Life process and the complex emotions and spiritual elements that come into play. We might want to support our loved ones or clients but do not have the mastery needed to do so.

This retreat is designed to empower you with knowledge and guidance to infuse this sacred life experience with Ease, Grace, and Love. ​

As Midwives, we witness time and time again how heart-ache, anxiety, and fear dominate this fragile and emotional time.

It is upon each of us to step into this space to repair the connection to the present, source, self, and each other with simple and effective tools and practices and above all love.

One of our greatest joys comes from former retreat participants who share how this course allowed them to deeply care for, and hold space for, those choosing the sacred journey of conscious dying. ​

Voices from the Community

Birgitta and Cheserae are amazing teachers and bring a personal level of commitment to this incredible work. Their loving spirits, compassionate natures, and deep knowledge of the subject came through in their teachings. The materials they provided were in-depth and practical. They created an inclusive space where I felt safe to explore my own feelings and abilities by doing practical, meaningful exercises. This work is so crucial and touches my soul deeply. It was truly a profound experience for me.

MRS. GILBERT – VENTURA CA

Thank you both for a beautiful experience. Each person there made it that much more special and personal. Birgitta and Cheserae, you brought all the love, knowledge and energy I had hoped for and more.

Your Journey is guided by Cheserae & Birgitta

Birgitta and Cheserae have known each other for over two decades. As mothers raising children on the same street, they developed a deep friendship and found a common interest in being with mystery.
Dying Wisely is the educational platform that brings together their unique gifts and their shared passion for conscious living and conscious dying. They offer a variety of unique private, group, and community offerings.
Based in Southern California, serving in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties; Birgitta and Cheserae teach, consult, and serve families with individual end-of-life support, support family-led after-death care, and provide rituals for these sacred times.

This work belongs to all of us. 

It is the work of communities, families, and individuals. 

It asks us to be present, to dance with Mystery, to recognize the sacred in the mundane and the bewildering unknown.
