Banksy is quoted as having said “…they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.
The mission of Beyond Morning is to support individuals in the writing of their life’s story before the moment of physical death. Then, when that moment comes, we strive to offer compassionate support for both them and their families, assisting in creating as peaceful of a death as humanly possible.
As an organization who’s passion is life stories, our clients hire us as writers to ghostwrite their own, or that of a family member’s, memoirs. We provide companionship and a listening ear to the dying, as well as fully edited, professionally written manuscripts to both them and their families. We assist with publishing options if desired. While our primary desire is to write for especially those with terminal diagnoses, we also write memoir for the healthy and the living.
As a Death & End of Life Doula, our passion is to support, write for, memorialize and companion the dying. An End of Life Doula is a professional, non medical support person trained to provide emotional, practical and physical support in death. Not only are we a companion and support system through the dying process who champions the art of listening and writing, we provide Advanced Planning Consultations and Vigil/Bedside support.
