A SACRED PASSING: Death Midwifery & Community Education
Board of Directors, Secretary
Summer Diegel currently serves as Secretary on the board of directors of A Sacred Passing. ASP is a nonprofit in Seattle, WA which "offers death and dying education individuals, community associations, and medical organizations. Together we work as supportive educational companions to guide and assist people towards a more conscious dying experience while honoring individual autonomy". Summer is in the process of developing courses to co-collaborate on leading in 2020.
NODA Community Companion
No One Dies Alone is a volunteer program that provides the reassuring presence of a trained volunteer companion to dying people who would otherwise be alone. A Sacred Passing supports the administration of this program in South Seattle. Volunteers are available to sit with the dying at any time and understand that death knows no time frame. We encourage you to activate the program by calling ‪(360) 504-8272 as soon as you notice them nearing the end of life.
