Meet Jacki

Founder of In the Circle of Life. 

Dedicated to shifting the cultural death paradigm and transform the chaos around death to one of greater peace.

For life and death are one, even as the river and and the sea are one.  ~Khalil Gibran


Attending to the End challenges readers to stop avoiding the inevitable and, instead, start planning for it. While it may seem like a strange and unpleasant task, planning for one's own death will allow them and their loved ones to feel more prepared and at-peace when the time comes.

Written in a gentle, easy-to-follow question and answer, spiral-bound format, this 60-page guidebook encourages quiet contemplation and provides the reader with the space to explore the ins and outs of creating a good death.
