Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula International Online Program


When we step onto the shamanic path of intentional Sacred Passages work, All of the Universe and Nature conspire to help us so we can help our human community.




Shamanic practitioner Linda Go is a certified Death Doula.  She shares her experiences as a dream time spirit transition guide, End of Life(EOL)facilitator and ancient earth based "Dying to Live" practices in her Sacred Passages Death Doula Program. These time honored practices she now shares in this apprenticeship program, have Linda's helped transitioning clients and EOL care providers since 2000 to prepare for a conscious death through Sacred Passages practices.

     So....What is a Death Doula?  Mostly,  death doulas are caring individuals who mediate between the dying client with their loved ones, medical staff and hospice. 


    My certified training was in a Western approach to death doula work. As an initiated shaman in death rites and ritual, dream yoga and sound healing, I found the Western method of EOL care lacking in what I believe are important elements for a Life Well Lived and a Smooth Transition from This Life to Next Best.

     Taking my teaching and EOL care experiences, I united them with my shaman work to create Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Training. It's focus being educating and sharing simple, effective practices to those interested in living a life that is free from pain: earthly conditioning and traumas that weigh us down and create dis-ease. Having a conscious death transition in place helps prepare us for EOL and next life, especially in how to navigate the "In Between" worlds or Bardos.


  In my Shamanic Death Doula practice, I guide my EOL clients, apprentices, and dream yoga students to experience many death and transition scenarios through shamanic waking dreams and sound and imagery meditation practices.


     Through hospice work experience, NDE's, shamanic work and journeys, I have become acquainted with and verified many of the places where spirit may end up; the  in between places of here and now. I have practiced how to navigate from this world to portals and places of ultimate departure.  Decades of journaling and mapping out these in between places have provided me with invaluable help and information from transition spirit guides and teachers that I happily now share  in my

Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Apprenticeship.  


This is a unique apprenticeship program for those who are called to an alternative approach to EOL care and practices rich in dream work, creative visualization meditations, trauma and grief somatic release methods and sound healing practices cultivated throughout my lifetimes.

Sacred Passages Shamanic Death Doula Apprenticeship is 39 hour program and begins when you feel called to do The Work and are ready to commit to this heart path of serving humanity as a guide through the sacred stages in this lifetime to next.

I would love to hear from you if this is your heart calling.

Many of us are hungry for rituals and practices to help serve those who are about to make their Sacred passage and great departure from this time and space reality we call Earth. Many of the friends and relatives of the departing and departed crave confirmation that their loved ones are at peace or are still “around” for contact —and that it is really them.

  • Heal yourself so you can heal others

  • Learn EOL Practices
