Conscious Dying Educator Certificate

A Mentoring and Community Death Education Training using

“Best 3 Months: Conscious Dying Coaching and Care Planning” Facilitation and Coaching Model

“Imagine being part of the evolution of human consciousness by offering conscious dying education to your local networks, systems, and communities.  Imagine being part of a new praxis of end of life education that includes the inner awakening of caring professionals, patients, and families.

Imagine being part of the courageous movement of a new end of life "Care Force" that goes beyond curative, medical treatment and/or hospice and palliative care; goes beyond advance directives to increasing the number of patients and families receiving the holistic healing care that matters most in experiencing life-fulfillment before death and redefines the Hippocratic Oath of "Do No Harm" to "Create Care and Healing for All.” -- Tarron Estes, Founder Conscious Dying Institute

As founder of the Conscious Dying Institute, I am excited to invite you to be part of our new Conscious Dying Educator Certificate Course (CDE).

This new course takes place during and within the Caritas Conscious Dying Educator Certificate (CCDC) course April 25-27 in Boulder, Colorado, and is followed by a 3 month B3M virtual practicum. 

Onsite workshop meeting times are as follows: 

  • Thursday, April 25, 2019 8:15 AM – 6:00 PM
  • Friday, April 26, 2019 9:00 AM – 8:00 PM

You will be a part of this vibrant new Caritas Conscious Dying Coaching program interacting with students from Watson Caring Science Institute’s Caritas Coach Education Course, receiving not only the CDE certificate, but all the wonderful new components of this course resulting from a beautiful collaboration between Tarron Estes and Dr. Jean Watson. (Please go here Caritas Conscious Dying Educator Certificate for more info.)

What will I receive in the CCDC course as a CDE student?

  • Newly developed student resources expounding and expanding on your End of Life Doula Handbooks and training.

What is the purpose of becoming a CDE?

To learn the tools and facilitation skills to further the educational outreach of conscious dying principles within community organizations and other group populations. In this community role, you will be advancing your doula passions and CDI’s mission to: restore death to its sacred place in the beauty, mystery & celebration of life. You will be a valuable participant in raising awareness in the Death Positive Movement and Conscious Dying Education and Care practices. With these expanded skills, as a Sacred Passage Doula and Conscious Dying Educator, you will be on the frontline of expanding the number of people identifying and receiving the care and life-fulfillment processes they want and need before, during and after life’s end.

The CDE course is designed for Sacred Passage EOL Doula Grads who:

  • Have a passion for teaching and have intact communities where they are inspired to bring this work
