Voices from the Community
Thank you so much for the amazing weekend. It was perfect preparation for living and meeting the huge challenges in my life. I am embarking on the toughest time of my life and l needed the support and peace and community that Birgitta and Cheserae provided.
MARY LOUISE – CA
The “In the end there’s only love” Retreat was so empowering, amazing and Informative!So much like Midwifery, transiting out of this world is so similar to transitioning and birthing into the world!Observing and creating the sacred space, supporting the family’s as well as the person going through transition, and working as hard as the laboring woman does. Being quiet when needed, being in the moment, being mindful and respectful. Keeping our focus on figuring out what the needs are and encouraging the family’s in helping to meet these needs.
Love & Blessings

Your Journey is Guided By
Birgitta is a Holistic Life Coach, doTERRA Wellness Advocate, Women’s Community Leader, and a modern medicine woman: merging the sacred with the practical in day to day life. Helping people reconnect the human heart and spirit back to nature is a central thread in her work.
As an End of Life Guide and Doula, Birgitta educates and supports individuals, families, health care providers, and organizations in reimagining death and dying.
The sacred privilege of walking people home has shaped Birgitta’s perspective of life as precious and love as invaluable. This perspective fuels her desire to support others in finding meaning and joy in their life
Cheserae has spent the last 8 years studying the process of mystical death through transpersonal psychology, and learning about how to support and facilitate end of life care. Since her youth, Cheserae found herself drawn to the subtle, the sacred, and the extraordinary.
Inspired with a new vision of what is possible in death and dying, and having forged new alliances with Hospice, community leaders, and colleagues, Cheserae has committed to sharing this work with families, groups, and individuals. She currently works as a death doula, and offers end of life support, bringing the sacred and beauty into the end of life.
Her newest project involves sharing the sacred use of essential oils in tending for the dying, and focuses both on the oils for the dying as well as those for supporting the caregivers.
