Hello, and Welcome
Whatever your reason, we’re relieved you’ve found us.
Rachael Klos is an educator and advocate at heart. After finding her place in education, coaching teachers and instructing children with different needs, it was the life and death of her son, Henry, that was the greatest catalyst for transformation in her life.
Rachael’s precious “middle little” was born with a life-limiting illness. Throughout Henry’s life and since his death, their family has received loving guidance and extraordinary support. Bringing great intention to her son’s eventual death, she believes, has provided unexpected comfort through their family’s grief. Discovering that her life’s work is to be a guiding light for families of sick and dying children and a grief support in their “after,” Rachael found Conscious Dying Institute and became certified as a Death Doula and End of Life Educator.
Rachael is passionate about the lessons that can be learned about intentional living from the work of embracing a conscious death. It is the beautiful life and peaceful death of her son, Henry, that has led Rachael to this sacred work of accepting our eventual death in order to live a meaningful, intentional life.
In support of the Death Positive Movement, Rachael’s mission is to normalize death and grief, while cultivating intentional living, conscious dying, and purposeful grieving. She is focused on the wellness of mind, body, and spirit for individuals and their families in life and through death. With a passion for Pediatrics, Rachael works to normalize the plan for death and the work of grief at all ages.
Rachael lives in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and their *three* children, two here and one near – because Henry’s continued presence is her daily inspiration as he continues to teach her all about life and death from the other side of the thin veil.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
-Henry David Thoreau
