“Inspired by her experience of caring for Ethan Sisser, Aditi Sethi, hospice doctor and death doula, founded the Center for Conscious Living and Dying (CCLD) in Asheville, North Carolina. CCLD is a nonprofit organization that provides nonmedical end-of-life care to individuals free of charge. CCLD is shifting the end-of-life care paradigm to one that is affordable, accessible, holistic, and mindful. At CCLD, death is embraced as a part of life. The Sanctuary, home to CCLD, is a place where a community of volunteers remembers how to live consciously together through the last breath and beyond. Spreading community end-of-life care initiatives,  Spring, CCLD will begin offering in-person death doula trainings in Spring 2023.”
