Monthly Member Education Sessions

Member Education Sessions take place on the third Tuesday of the month at either 5pm or 6pm PST / 8pm or 9pm EST. All meetings are conducted on Zoom. If you are unable to make it to the meetings, they are recorded and shared on our members and supporters resource pages so that you can view them at your leisure.

Peer Mentoring

We offer a bi-monthly peer mentoring session, where we get together to chat about our work, share our knowledge with our peers, and gather in community. This is helpful for both working Doulas to get support with their work, as well as for prospective Doulas who are getting started.

Novice Doula Orientation

Are you looking to become an End of Life Doula and need some support to get started? We offer semi-annual sessions where we explore what training to take, how to set up your practice and more. If you are a supporting member and would like to join the EOLDAC as a registered member, we will take you through how to apply and ways to build your experience hours requirement.

Please view our upcoming events below, as well as previous events that are available for download in our members-only recording library.

Barb has prepared a presentation that will explore the ideas of life and death from a Buddhist perspective. She will discuss the basics of Kharma and its relation to the body’s dying process, as well as things to consider and keep in mind when working with this belief system. These will include:

  • mind and body
  • teachings
  • rituals and/or ceremonies
  • how best to support

You can expect an interactive conversation and come away with a deeper understanding of the forms of Buddhism!
