Living & Dying

Guidance in Life & Death 

The Journey of Death as a Part of Life

End-of-Life Learning

Welcome. You're in the right place.

In a culture that denies death, it's not surprising that we often don't know much about it, if anything. We avoid thinking about it all cost- until a crisis happens- then our world is blown apart. 

We are all going to die. This is the inescapable truth. Ignoring this truth creates suffering: living an avoidance of our impermanence, a death unforeseen. 

A new way of learning about death and dying, as well as, a new approach to death and life is required of us. This involves a process of making death a part of life, by living with the end in mind.


To live mindful of mortality, we acknowledge and welcome our silent companion in life- death- into our life. 


This undertaking begins to weave the threads of our life into the tapestry of our soul's death journey. Just as the spiritual path in life is a solo journey, so is death. 


If you would like support on your venture into a new way, a new approach,  Jacki is here to walk with you...

For life and death are one, even as the river and sea are one. ~Kahlil Gibran

When I answered the "call" of hospice nursing, I  had not idea how deeply my life would be impacted.


Yes, death was a part of my life through caring for the dying. However, I never fathomed how death would become a part of my life, personally. 


Over time, I awakened to the importance of living each moment, with the end in mind. Fully integrating this into my life, was transformative- in amazing ways!

Now I guide others in this process...through an evocative. supportive approach.

Your journey towards death began the moment you took your first breath...  

You guided all of us through unchartered territory, patiently listening and teaching us. Your reassurance and explanations gave us resilience. We will never forget you.

I would highly recommend the Death as a Part of Life Program. It was thought-provoking, enriching, and transformative for me. Jacki is very knowledgeable, offering valuable insights and sharing her stories.


Working with Jacki was transformative and exceeded my expectations. She is so down-to-earth, helpful and really knows her stuff. I look forward to continuing to explore this "work" even more deeply.
