The Practitioner Course Level One

This three-day course is designed to give you the essential skills you will need in order to become a Soul Midwife or companion to the dying.

Some students on this course are already working as carers, therapists, nurses, doctors or priests and celebrants and are seeking to extend their existing skills. However, anyone who feels called to do this work will be accepted with no prior experience, as long as their motives for the work are compassion, integrity and devotion.

Great care is taken to create a supportive and nurturing experience for students.

Entry to this course requires either attendance at one of our Introductory Days, or by completing the Distance Module of our online training programme.

If you have attended a TLC Day and would like to attend Level One, you will need to complete an online Access Module. Please see our Distance Learning page..
