WELCOME TO DOORWAY INTO LIGHT
Active in the Maui and global community since 2006, We offer physical, emotional and spiritual support, assisting families with end-of-life care, home funerals, direct burial, ocean body burial and direct cremation, often working closely with the local hospice, funeral homes and cemeteries.
We offer community education workshops and presentations for those who wish to explore their own approaching death, or to enrich their path in service to the dying. Topics include spiritual caregiving, tools for approaching death, the ‘greening’ of the funeral industry, home funerals, advance directives and more…
We facilitate a monthly open gathering called Speaking of Death.
We have opened our first retail store, THEDEATHSTORE, offering goods and services for the dying, their families and all who may die one day. We wish to help reinvent and revolutionize the funeral home and bring it further into the commons and the cultural conversation.
We wish to support the work of souls, especially in the time of the dying of the physical body.
To support, educate and empower families and communities to reclaim their roles of caring for the dying, and for the dead, and in bringing forth ritual and ceremony.
To help transform the funeral industry from profit driven business, to sacred service utilizing sustainable and compassionate practices.
To help redirect the cemetery industry towards land protection, restoration, reforestation, greenways and open space.
To create a dying center to include a conservation cemetery, crematory, school, and retreat center for those approaching death.
To establish a community of like-minded and good hearted beings actively engaged in this work and establish businesses that support this work.
To assist in the healing of this culture’s relationship with death, and to help grow a culture of compassion and care.
DOORWAY INTO LIGHT IS DEDICATED TO SUPPORTING WHOLE-HEARTED AND SACRED LIVING AND DYING.
