End of Life Doula Training Program
training and mentoring doulas, companions, guides and midwives since 2005
This one woman show is written and performed by Giselle Suarez. Giselle graduated from the Royal Theatre Arts Academy in Utrecht in the Netherlands. She went on to perform in classic and original works, throughout the European professional theatre circuit. Together with her husband, she founded MOMENTA, a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands, which completed several theatre projects in Central America working with the young Mayan population. In 2009, her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor and she spent nine months assisting her on her death journey. This experience changed her life drastically and inspired the creation of The Death Monologues, which in many ways, feels like her life's work.
