Training Dates

Here at Sacred Circle we take our risk assessments seriously; an act of Love rather than fear and we were delighted recently to be able to run our Red Tent End of Life doula preparation course in a Covid safe way at a lovely retreat centre in North Wales. This was, in fact, the first chance we had in the whole of 2020 to run such a course and the venue was just perfect for it.

Here is the 2021 update of End of Life Doula courses; all of which are tentatively going ahead with Covid risk assessments in place but with the obvious caveat that we cannot know what may change between now and then.

But sometimes, you know, we have to plan as if things can indeed go ahead otherwise we won’t plan or do anything; and one thing that this year has shown me personally is that this world has never needed death and grief doulas so much.

If you have paid a 2020 deposit you do not need to go through the application process again; please just email to say you want to take up your seat on one of these courses and which one.

If you have not yet paid a deposit but you would like to go ahead and book onto one of these courses then please follow this link to the application form and proceed from there (I have a new admin team in place handling bookings and invoicing etc so please do follow the process we have in place but if you feel like our new system isn’t working for you at any time let me know; and also please know that you can email me on redtenteol@gmail.com directly with questions if you wish to).
