What Is Companioning?
Companioning is a model of death care that enables us to 'walk' with a loved one or a client throughout the dying process and after death. Anecdotal evidence tells us that Companioning diminishes fear, allays anxiety and reduces medication. Companioning addresses the number one challenge all dying people face—releasing the human story. Companioning teaches the skill of Dreamwalking to show up at the deathbed like never before.
Someone you know is dying. You are asked to sit at the deathbed. What skill do you bring?
The chances are better than ever that someone close to you is in the final year of life. How would you know? How do they know, when to stop treatment and begin the process of dying?
The manner of your dying, the way you die, the way your death unfolds follows big things.
At the end of life, it's no surprise that big things and small ones, the things you thought were buried in the backyard of life, would surface. And they do.
