Greetings Dear Reader, 

I’m taking the opportunity to share some reflections, contemplations, musings, tips about the end-of-life knowledge that I have acquired through my years of study and Death Doula experiences. I share with an open mind, meaning that what I share is about what I know at this time understanding that some of it may change as my knowledge deepens and my experiences widen my horizon, or as other factors come to light refining my Death Doula offerings. 


My hope is that my sharing piques your curiosity, that it leads to reflections of your own values and beliefs, the meaning of life and death, and that it engages you in dialogue with yourself, with your friends and family, that it opens a space for the subject of death and dying and all of its gifts, challenges and permutations to be discussed, contemplated and reflected on, and shared. 


May we all be more open to the adventure of living and dying every day so as to prepare for our final days and transition to the Great Beyond, whatever that may mean or be for each of us.


I see you.

I hear you.

You matter - your life and death matter.



Current Events

Dying to Chat - Death Cafe inspired conversations

You are welcome to join us at our monthly Dying to Chat evenings where we have group discussions about end of life, death and all matters related to it, all whilst sipping some tea that we provide. 

We gather locally every second Wednesday of the month from 6pm to 8pm EST at the Ottawa Public Library, Emerald Plaza location at 1547 Merivale Road in Ottawa, Ontario. 

Our intention is to normalize the conversation surrounding our mortality, death and dying, to engage in open conversation with others, explore our personal, cultural, and societal views, beliefs and experiences, all the while being in a compassionate and relaxed atmosphere. 

Although this is not a support group, we welcome anyone interested in taking part in meaningful and thoughtful conversations and discovering what death can teach us about life and living. 

If you have any question or want to be added to our distribution list to be reminded of this event, contact me at
