The Most Excellent Dying of Theodore Jack Heckleman

Science can diagnose illnesses and even cure them, but it cannot teach us to die well.  That comes from a deep spiritual choice..This is the story of a man who did it.

“I have seldom seen a film that captures so sensitively,and with such honesty and hope, the death of someone so loved and loving."

-Johnathan Stedall, 

Internationally known BBC film maker, producing documentaries of  the lives of Ghandi, Carl Jung, and many more.

Mentoring Support For Families

Nancy has volunteered community death care and consulting for nearly four decades, as well as traveling and lecturing to aid other communities to help take care of their own. While she never refuses those that call in distress and need, especially during tragic and sudden deaths where she can help with practical advice and spiritual context, she is now in another situation where monetary support is needed and welcomed.

Consultations can be arranged for $60 per session on death and dying issues, parenting and a spiritual view of child development. If any are experiencing an emergency yet are unable to schedule a consultation due to financial difficulty, contact Nancy and other arrangements can be made.

She is deeply committed to giving aid and support to the families and babies coming in now in the time she has left.

Nancy has been there with many families to console, and aid  in ensouling the shocking loss especially around the death of a child. One family (obviously a very special couple) expressed their gratitude in the following words when she counseled them through the death of their child with fatal genetic issues. 

"...we are overwhelmed with gratitude for you...words fall are an angel of light and love...we have been so abundantly blessed to have your friendship during this critical time in our lives-...guiding us, holding us, lifting us, inspiring us. Thank you, thank you, thank you... We cannot imagine what this experience would have been without you and our incredible community...we were given a gift of courage, strength, joy, love and peace throughout."

Book Reviews

Living Into Dying

“ I expected I would have a deep interest in its content. But what I didn’t imagine is that I wouldn’t be able to put it down!  Your writing is such a beautiful affirmation of the work with the dying and bereavement support as well.  Thank you for the beautiful soulful stories.  I laughed and cried.”
