S3.E12 {SEASON FINALE}: Empowering + Normalizing the Death Experience with End-of-Life Doula Leslie Conner

September 12, 2019

Join Jessica for the Season 3 Finale, where she talks about the life of death with yogi, energy healer, and Death Doula Leslie Conner. This episode is one that Jessica has wanted to record for a long time, and is a topic that is often hidden behind a veil of fear or uncertainty in the Western world. Leslie shares about how she was called to this work, and why working with an end-of-life doula can change the experience of dying for both the person transitioning and the loved ones and care takers left behind. She talks about the empowerment people can feel when they are given the choice of how to take control of their death narrative, rather than feeling like a “burden”, or not wanting to express emotions for fear of upsetting loved ones. The women discuss the differences between a Birth Doula and a Death Doula, and talk about how normalizing (and even celebrating death) can be healing for everyone involved. Tune in to this heavy hitter that will make you think about your own beliefs around death.
