Doula Journeys are an exploration of people and places that are important in the world in relation to how we view life into death. They are dynamic and at the same time deeply sweet, spiritual and nourishing.

In areas in the world where it is dangerous or where access to opioids is nonexistent or minimal, progress will depend on the efforts of humanitarian groups and organizations like the International Association of Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) and our support of them. Please go here to read more about IAHPC’s efforts.

But what about the rest of us … those of us who easily have choice? So many of us have options and we don’t behave as if we do.

Hello, my name is Deanna Cochran and I am one of many people deeply involved in bringing peace and empowerment to people and families as they face life from serious illness through death and mourning. To those of us who have a choice, my efforts are to make sure you know that.
