Upcoming Events


Doulagivers Discussions on Death and Dying is being transformed!

We will now combine with Veronica Ripp’s Death Cafe in Sturgeon Bay monthly.

Veronica is the owner of the Get Real Cafe in Sturgeon Bay, and also a Certified Doulagivers End of Life Doula. Her vision combining both of her passions has created a wonderful community event. Doulagivers will join her monthly for these very exciting opportunities to connect and discuss death.


A community gathering to discuss dying. It’s going to happen so we may as well talk about it! Learn about what an End of Life Doula is and how much of an impact they can have during the dying process. Share stories and support each other over small bites, coffee, and tea. The only thing on the agenda is to come together and Get Real with life

Learn to be an End of Life Doula…for your family members, friends, community members, or for those you wish to become a paid caregiver for.

Participants will learn everything they need to know from the time someone gets a terminal diagnosis, all the way through creating a sacred space during the final hours of life. Based on the concept of families, friends, and community members providing support and care to others as they face the end of their lives, this course is full of practical, emotional and spiritual information that will empower everyone who takes it. 

What you will learn:

  • The 3 phases of End of Life Care
  • Interventions to use in each phase for the patient’s optimal comfort and care
  • Case studies using real end of life scenarios to demonstrate the training. This allows the family caregiving doula to reinforce the knowledge and apply it to real, bedside examples.

Information will be available for those interested in to the Practitioner Certification Training Course. This is for those who wish to create their own business as Certified End of Life Doulas.

Reflective Writing Workshops 

      Finding the Preciousness of Life

3-One Day Workshops at the Sylvas House in Ephraim WI

Explore your deepest self during this series of reflective writing workshops.  Designed to build one to the other, we will delve into the steps that Marggie will cover in her new book about to be published, Life As A Prayer.

Using the lessons that have been learned from working with the dying, Marggie guides the participants to look deeply within and express their highest self through the written word. Meditation and reflective prompts from a variety of sources touch on the issues of generosity and patience, forgiveness of ourselves and others, finding compassion and love, and leading towards defining our own meaningful life and purpose.

Each workshop is held in the rustic luxury of the Sylvas House, surrounded by the power of the natural beauty of Door County WI. A catered, light lunch is provided.
