About

The worst labyrinth is not that intricate form that can entrap us forever; but a single and precise straight line.
-Jorge Luis Borges

WHERE TO BEGIN?

From the furthest reaches of my earliest childhood memories, I recall having incredible support (both practically and emotionally) to go out and achieve my dreams — an exceedingly generic and tauntingly vague platitude thrust upon me and my generation.

What did that even mean – to achieve one’s dreams? What were my dreams? What was the point of all of this anyhow? With plenty of guidance and education at my disposal, I embarked on a quest to squelch my insatiable desires for cosmic Knowledge…and on to college, I went.

While college may not be for everyone – particularly today – for me, it was a decidedly fruitful endeavor. I attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, where I immersed myself in Philosophy, intellectually wrestling the likes of Socrates, Rousseau, and The Buddha himself, as well as Beat writers like Kerouac, Burroughs, and Ginsburg. All of this both supercharged my will to better myself for the world, yet somehow left me more confused about what to do with my life.

A NAIL IN THE ROAD

Not long into my post-college adult life – after I had spent some time backpacking through Europe – everything I ever knew and believed in was shattered instantly. At roughly 3 PM on October 17, 2006, I received a call from my older brother that our father -my best friend and hero – decided he’d had enough and took his own life inside his home in Birmingham, Michigan. That was the day I officially met Death.

In tremendously short summation, what began as an unspeakably crushing loss has fermented within me and become a cornucopia of humility, compassion, understanding, and mindfulness – as well as an overwhelming desire to help others see the meaning, beauty, inevitability, and the timeless reprieve of Death.

THE HERE AND NOW

I’ve tried on many different hats during my professional journey – fine-dining server, spa hospitality supervisor, kayak/snorkel guide, maintenance man, wine-tender, construction project manager, industrial cannabis grower, and greenhouse farmer, to name a few.

But after helping a dear friend through a life-and-death moral dilemma, I found my deepest calling.

As a certified Legacy Doula, an Existential Coach, and a Spiritual Advisor, my mission is to guide others with grace and dignity through the daunting enormity of dying, death, and the post-death experience.

Perhaps there is a meeting in our midst….

This is a chance for us to build a sacred space free of judgment and expectation. It’s a chance to address the innumerable difficulties of embracing death. It’s a chance to educate, enlighten, and ponder what a beautiful and “good death” means to you.

We must remember that nothing in this world really belongs to us. At best, we are merely borrowers.

– Christopher Isherwood
