“The more we remember how to walk one another home, the more we’re coming home to ourselves along the way.” 

- Hannah Fowler, Director of Education

CCLD offers workshops, trainings, and retreats for those seeking support to bring death awareness into their lives and to live with authenticity and presence. We also offer opportunities to prepare for death and better understand the dying process.

Training for our Volunteers

A perk of being a CCLD Volunteer is the transformative training you receive as part of membership. Volunteers experience an Immersion Day to connect with one another and to the culture of CCLD including live experiential practices to explore conscious living and dying. Volunteers interested in providing bedside direct care to our residents then go on to the Direct Care Training which includes another in person retreat day,  a half-day Grief Retreat, hands-on practice of bedside care skills, and lastly shadowing at the bedside with a 3 week online training and Zoom calls. For information on the Direct Care Training, please email


End of Life Doula Training

At the heart of CCLD is community. As such, our end of life doula program will include 6 weeks of online course work, as well as an in person 3 day retreat on site, and followed by one week of bedside apprenticeship shadowing and caring for our residents alongside our trained volunteers. This program is for anyone - not just our volunteers or community members. Our doula program will not begin until after January 2024. For inquiries on what makes our program unique, please contact

CCLD hosts many retreats and workshops on site, as well as bringing our heart-centered and experienced facilitators to other centers. Please check out our events for members as well as open community events on our “Home” page.

“What enlivens me is talking about who we really are beyond these bodies, roles and personalities that will inevitably dissolve away. Maybe it's the fleeting nature of things that makes them beautiful in the first place. To really give generously from that place of gratitude for life itself, that is what infuses meaning.” 

- Hannah Fowler, Director of Education
