Subtle Energy Principles for Sacred Deathcare

An Online Course

Practical guidance for creating a healthy and healing field

Tools to stabilize your energy body so you can hold space for death and loss
Techniques for collaborating with the healing forces in the field
I’m Sarah Kerr and I’m excited to share with you a little bit about my course on subtle energy principles for sacred deathcare. If you’re called to work with dying people and their families, it’s likely that you are sensitive and attuned to subtle and spiritual information in the energetic field. That’s not something, in dominant culture, that’s valued. It’s more often seen as a failing that a gift. But it’s actually incredibly useful as a skill if you’re working with dying people and grieving people. Because, at death, our physical and our non-physical selves separate. Having the skills to be attuned and aware of what’s happening to both parts of us is really important. These skills are not some deep esoteric mystery. For the most part, they’re pragmatic, and pretty straightforward. They’re just not something we’re taught. At a baseline, the art is to keep yourself healthy, and not overwhelmed, in really intense, emotional and energetic situations. And to be present for those you’re supporting. That’s level one. Level two is what I call, “Using your powers for good.” That’s taking the sensitivity and actually developing it as a gift. And using it proactively, to help shape, and shift the field, so that healing can emerge. This course provides a framework for that, a way of approaching sacred deathcare, from a set of subtle energy principles. (If you haven’t heard of subtle energy, you’re probably feeling it and this will just give you language for what you are experiencing it.) These are tools that I use all the time in my practice and I’m really excited to share them with you.

Learn to keep your energy clear and balanced, and to hold space for dying and grieving people.

$99 CAD / ~ $78 USD

If you’re called to sacred deathcare, you’re likely sensitive to subtle energies and non-physical realities. But you may not know how to manage or use the information you have access to.

As a teacher and mentor, I see this a lot.

You may get somatic, intuitive, emotional, or energetic “hits,” and not know if you can trust them.

A student questioned the images and insights that arose as she was facilitating a ceremony for the death of a friend’s dog. “How do I know if this is real, or if I’m just making it up?” she wondered.

You may have access to more information than your professional training gave you skills to navigate.

A chaplain, who experienced vivid visitations from patients as they were taking their last breath, needed support with setting boundaries for these interactions. He told me, “This definitely never came up in any of my training.”

You may feel deeply, and have trouble differentiating your energy and your emotions from other people’s.

A death doula struggled to maintain compassionate neutrality with a client who reminded her of her own grandmother. “I can’t do my job if I can’t stop crying,” she explained.

You may receive communications from the other side, and not know what to do with them

A hospice director reached out because she was getting spontaneous transmissions for families, from patients who had died. She asked me, “What’s the appropriate and ethical way to deal with this?”

You may have experiences with dead people that are as real as experiences with live people

A funeral director came for help clearing the embalming room after each person she worked on. “It’s hard to focus on one person,” she said, “When there’s still energy here from the person before.”

Most people have never been taught how to work with subtle energy.

There are foundational organizing principles and effective practices for keeping energy clear and balanced.

Once you learn these principles and practices, your life will get easier, and you’ll be better able to serve the people you work with.

This course teaches you how to work with the energetic dynamics of dying, death, and dead people.

Gain skills for collaborating with the spiritual energies of death and loss, and practical tools to help your friends, family, and clients.

About your instructor
About your instructor

Sarah Kerr PhD

I’ve been a death doula and ritual healing practitioner since 2012. I have a doctorate in Transformative Learning and I’ve been a student of spiritual and systemic healing practices for almost three decades.

My clients and students understand that death and loss are important parts of their spiritual journey, but they don’t have a spiritual map to guide them through these experiences. I bring a map rooted in energy medicine, systems thinking, sacred sciences and ancient wisdom traditions.

I’m honoured to share what I’ve learned from my teachers, my clients, and own experience, and I’m grateful to be part of a larger community of people who are working to do death better. 

This class has two parts, a Teaching Call and an Integration Call.

Student Reviews

Your passion made me feel passionate, too  

I like that you delivered your teaching with passion. Your passion and your love for what you do made me feel passionate too, and gave me a drive to want to do this work in the world. I want to help carry that passion forward.

~ Lisa P.

Complex things become simple and clear  

Sarah makes complex things simple and clear; her excellent teaching style made it all really useful and interesting. I learned about so many ways that you could be helpful for people who are dying and their families, and I really got a lot out of the course.

A fundamental teacher for me

Thanks, Sarah. You have been and continue to be a fundamental teacher to me through your work and sharing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

~ Samantha R.

Sarah’s passion comes through in her teaching   

“Sarah is a very passionate person and it comes through in her teaching. When you can see the instructor truly loves what they’re doing it’s so much easier to gather the information from it.”

~ Michelle D.

It’s amazing to learn from you  

What I love about you as a teacher, Sarah, is that you’re completely without ego; you’re confident but very humble. I can just see with your clients, that you really meet them, that you’re the nexus point for sharing information with them.

It’s amazing for me just to see how you communicate, and to learn from you, I’ve taken away a lot. Many thanks.

A powerful, transformative experience

Sarah thinks in ritual; it’s just the way her mind works. She can make the weaving. She takes elements that people feel and express, and she brings them together and makes this artifact which becomes the ritual, and it’s a powerful, transformative experience.
