A New Paradigm for Death and Dying
Imagine a world where you know the final wishes of your loved ones; a world where the uncertainties and fear around death and dying are rare; a world where death is discussed openly as a comfortable topic and viewed with the same joy and reverence as birth. These realities are what GoGracefully is creating, one relationship at a time.
Advanced Support for Our Time
Creating support for the emotional, psychological, and sacred aspects of death is the central focus of GoGracefully. To compensate for the unmet need that exists in our modern world, we have created an extensive training program to train thousands of GoGracefully Guides.
Every person who holds the credential of GoGracefully Guide has completed a rigorous program. Our certification ensures that GoGracefully Guides are motivated by loving service, educated with extremely useful knowledge, and equipped with an abundance of beneficial referrals. Most importantly though, they are trained to use genuine empathy and understanding when it is needed most.
Currently, there are over 65 million baby boomers in the United States alone at retirement age. We are rapidly approaching a care-giving crisis as this number climbs to over 85 million by the year 2050 with even fewer people to provide the care needed. Because of these demographics the “death industry” is evolving many new and innovative ideas like green burials, home funerals, and death midwives (also known as end-of-life doulas).
GoGracefully is contributing to these foundations with an entirely new way to serve this massive need for planning and preparation. We created the GoGracefully Guide training program. GoGracefully Guides receive preparation similar to what is currently offered by the end-of-life doula programs sprouting up across the U.S., but we believe that this is only the beginning of what is truly needed to address the coming challenges. Therefore, we have added knowledge and skills from multiple social science disciplines to our certification program. All certified GoGracefully Guides have explored the legal, economic, linguistic, historical, psychological and sociological aspects of death. The social science base is only the beginning of our training. GoGracefully Guides are also exposed to multiple spiritual, mental, and cultural approaches to death. This is precisely why our program has several levels of certification and is perhaps the most comprehensive training available to support both conscious dying, and conscious living.
