Points of Light Grief & Death Doula Mission
We strive to connect our clients with the information, referrals, and support they need to be fully informed, nurtured, and connected to a grounded sense of alignment.
We seek to keep our clients informed about the ever evolving science about the relationship stress and mindfulness have to the mind-body-spirit connection. Simultaneously! We work to infuse a sense of spirit and joy amidst the changing landscape currently unfolding in your world.
What we know for sure: You are your best guide, and we will follow your lead.
GRIEF, DEATH AND & NAVIGATING TO NEW NORMAL ARE RIGHTS OF PASSAGE
These life altering experiences have the capacity to hold a transformative, liberatory power. Trust and safety are key components to engaging the most potent versions of you in each of these processes. We will work together either one-on-one or in group class work to explore what you need in this process as it unfolds.
You are meant to be the strongest resonance in experience. We will entrain to you and your evolving needs. When you need it, we are here for additional layers of guidance with our hearts open.
CELEBRATE ALL BODIES, PEOPLES, WORLD VIEWS
We promise to meet you where you are at and honor what it is you need in this experience for it to feel not only good, but authentic. You are the essential component of this experience and deserve to move thorugh it in ways that feel replenishing, healthful and safe. We love supporting folks who seek spiritual connection, folks who currently live with (or have lived with) stress, trauma, anxiety and/or depression, as well as folks who belong to POC and LGBTQIA2S+ communities.
Points of Light Grief & Death Doulas will work with your main support people and sometimes your professional care providers to ensure you are getting the care you need and deserve. We offer family facilitation to help you, your loved ones and your support team land on the same page when there may be many opinions, thoughts and ideas about the care you need. We will strategize about how to keep your home and life feeling like a place of nourishment.
UPHOLD CULTURAL COMPETENCY AND TRAUMA INFORMED CARE
We promise to meet you where you are at and provide care that is free from stigma. We also promise to support you in ways that are specific to your needs. In any situation, if we are not a great match culturally, we will work to connect you with a care provider that better fits your needs. Having a doula you feel fully connected to is imperative for building trust.
Mindfulness is recognizing what is there in the present moment. Suffering is there, yes; but what is also there is that you are still alive: "Breathing in, I know I'm alive." Yes your eyes still work: "Breathing in, I'm aware of my eyes. Breathing out, I smile to my eyes."
