- Together Forward -

“We’re all just walking each other home.”

Ram Dass

Initial Consultation

This time together allows you to discern if I can indeed be of service to you, and offers me opportunity to gather your information and understand what you are asking for in me.

While we can certainly spend time together on an hourly basis, I offer different packages that may be more helpful.

Complimentary (30 minutes - 1 hour)

Life Review & Vigil Planning

Coming face to face with one’s mortality often creates a time of deep reflection that can evolve into the creation of something tangible to represent our life. During this time of Life Review, you may also realize you want to resolve a conflict, perhaps through forgiveness of one’s self or another person. You may discover profound gratitude, and long to reach out for deep connection with certain people. 

Planning your unique Vigil is the opportunity to design your final space. What would you love to be looking at or hearing, smelling or touching? Who do you want near you? Who do you not want to be with you? Are there rituals or celebrations you might wish for, to take place during and after your death?

  • Initial visit to hear your story and what matters most
  • Explore your life to bring meaning & awareness of the impact left
  • Development of a personal Vigil Plan
  • Follow your ongoing progress routinely
  • Initiate your Vigil Plan when death is near
  • Creation of ritual to mark the beginning and ending of each visit
$600 (6 sessions/1-2 hours per visit)

Vigil Planning & Legacy Project

My time in this work often generates the perfect idea for a Legacy Project. This lasting gift can become a video message, letter-writing, a collection of family recipes or photographs, a book of life lessons/your favorite quotes, or a scroll of drawings and thoughts. This project would reflect you, whatever it becomes.

  • The above Life Review & Vigil Planning package
  • Help to develop and implement with you/client, family and friends, a lasting Legacy Project

This process often brings a sense of inner peace for all involved, deepening your important life story and creating a physical heirloom.

$1000 (10 sessions/1-2 hours per visit)
