Welcome to The Centre for Sacred Deathcare

Hi, I’m Sarah Kerr, and I’m the founder of the Centre for Sacred Deathcare.

There’s a huge gap between the kind of soul-healing we get around death and loss in dominant culture, and the soul-healing we actually need.

We could avoid a lot of unnecessary suffering if we approached the end of life from a wider, more spiritually-aware perspective.

The Centre for Sacred Deathcare helps people meet death –and life– in ways that are more healing, more whole, and more Holy.

We offer educational and community-building programs, for death doulas and others, who are called to offer spiritual support to dying people and their families.

Our programs validate your intuitive insights, and give structure and direction to the healing energy inside you, so you can offer it in service to your community

To learn more about the principles of sacred deathcare, and how to get started, I invite you to download our introductory e-book.

Thanks for being part of doing death better.
