Caring for yourself as an advocate

Oceana Sawyer

Register this fall for Dying With Dignity Canada’s (DWDC) first conference, Reflections on Death and Dying: Creating space for end-of-life conversations. This unique event aims to educate individuals on a range of important topics related to death, dying and grief. 

On November 18, join the Dying With Dignity Canada team and Oceana Sawyer to learn about caring for yourself as an advocate — completely free of charge.



As an End of Life (EOL) Doula, Oceana Sawyer specializes in the liminal spaces of active dying and grief. She is currently researching the intersection of embodied grief and somatic abolitionism as well as developing and holding space for healing through a sensual (all the senses) lens. 

A certified home funeral celebrant, living funeral ceremony facilitator, and Conscious Dying Educator, Oceana also holds graduate degrees in counseling psychology and organizational development.

Oceana draws upon her meditation practice, experience as a sensuality educator, earth-based spirituality, and intensive study in the expressive arts and integral counseling psychology to bring a grounded, compassionate presence and holistic approach to her work. Through Death Cafes, EOL vision mapping, EOL doula training, and virtual grief events and workshops, Oceana has enjoyed working with a variety of groups and individuals, and primarily focuses on People of the Global Majority.
