After the Last Breath Modules
After someone’s last breath often people ask “What’s the right thing to do now?” … and what is the right thing to do? These modules are designed to help you to discern what is right for you and those around you during the time between someone’s last breath and their burial or cremation – what we call the Daisy Days. Our aim is that you will gain the knowledge, confidence and curiosity to support you to follow your instincts at this time. Attention is given to preparing for someone’s Daisy Days, practical body care, soul care, our responses and opportunities for meaningful connection.
These modules are suitable for everyone, whether or not they have any or no spiritual or religious belief. No prior knowledge or experience related to death is required. The modules are accessed directly through the website, no extra logins or passwords are needed.
We also offer a full course several times per year based on the same material and with live online Q&A/discussion sessions. Further information about the course is given here.
We want everyone who needs this information to have access to it. Please contact us for access to the modules if you are unable to buy them through the website for whatever reason.
Note: The modules are a pre-requisite for joining our voluntary network in Scotland, the Daisy Chain. If you become an active member we will offer to refund any payment you made for the modules.
the Daisy Days
In this module we consider the value and legalities of the days between someone’s last breath and their burial or cremation – their Daisy Days. This is a valuable time for reconfiguring relationships, releasing gently, and setting the course of the grieving process.
Body and Soul
During The Daisy Days
In this module we consider our relationship with someone’s body and soul after they have taken their last breath and until their burial or cremation – or, as we say, during their Daisy Days. We include the practical considerations for body care and a copy of the Daisy Body Care Manual.
Looking After Ourselves
During The Daisy Days
In this module we consider how we can look after our longer term wellbeing during the time between a person’s last breath and their burial or cremation, during the Daisy Days. It is such a potentially valuable time for setting the course of our grieving process.
For Your Daisy Days
In this module we consider how you can prepare for the days after your last breath, your Daisy Days, in a way that is meaningful for yourself and also those who are going to be affected by your death. Firstly through conversations then by recording your wishes in a letter.
