DEATH SEEDING LIFE
HOME FUNERAL TESTIMONIALS
At 23, I never expected to have to say goodbye to my mother. I didn't know how to move through the motions of my mother's dying process. When my mother first told me she wanted a home funeral and for Katherine to be her doula, I thought that was pretty strange. Watching Katherine tirelessly read, comfort and give loving-kindness to my mother in her final days helped me understand how anyone would want this. I took part in creating a Cloak of Protection with family and friends for my mother to be buried in, and after my mother had passed, I wanted to help Katherine bathe, clothe, and wrap her in it. It was so beautiful. She was so beautiful. And I will never be the same. We are our own individual people, and we should have the right to go out on our own terms. Now I see how we DESERVE to pass, and want no others to just be passed on.
A death edu-culturalist
Katherine Savage is a death midwife whose purpose is building a culture in which people live in accordance with the planet’s regenerative cycles. She offers ways and means for people to attune their lives to the universal forces of creation and dissolution, so that death can become their teacher. With skill and care, she guides individuals on their personal journey to open to the wisdom of this teacher, and supports communities in building practices that dignify the dying process and honor the earth that will receive us. Through thoughtfully tending the vision of death as the foundation of our awareness, Katherine plants the seeds for a culture that embodies a way of living harmoniously with the earth that conjured us.
