Life as Work
Amanda believes addressing personal and collective grief will lead to greater care for the earth. The 13 years of sustainability experience and scientific education in Environmental Studies and Management led Amanda to unfold the intricacies of world societies. This led to the realization that we often do not have agency around our grief and death. Years of interpersonal support, teachings from wise elders, and a culmination of many life lessons, helped Amanda craft grief releasing processes.
Utilizing practical and emotional tools, Amanda guides others in maintaining and/or reclaiming their sovereignty in life and in the active dying process. After transitioning, Amanda insures you are cared for and celebrated according to your wishes.
