End of Life



End of Life Planning - Participation, Preparation, Presence… and Peace

Barbara Slaine and Sue Broudy

End-of-life Doulas, Guides for Conscious Dying, and Reiki Masters

Often, a lack of end-of-life planning can result in chaos and a loss of valuable resources at this most precious time to unite with your loved ones. The stressors of waiting until the last moment to know what to do or how to proceed can be avoided.  Your death has a ripple effect for your entire family and can become a gift if done consciously, and we can help with this beautiful subject.  This information is not only timely, it is a subject we all have in common, and know on some level we can help others and ourselves in a significant way.

Sue Broudy and Barbara Slaine are certified end-of-life doulas, hospice trained, Master Reiki practitioners, and educated in many modalities including:  Buddhist Clearlight Society, Aryuvedic practices, anointment oils, sound healing, and more.  We want to share our Top Tips with you.  Our offering is a 3-series compilation of our studies, training and services to share the pearls of wisdom to assist your loved ones, and yourself, through this sacred time.
