meet ana lisa
Hello! I am Rev. Ana Lisa Domenica, and I thank you for stopping by! I would love to help you navigate through your changes, no matter what stage of life you're in.
I was trained as a Patient Volunteer with Hospice of the Carolina Foothills in 2009, as a Green Burial and Home Funeral Guide by the Center for End-of-Life Transitions in Asheville NC in 2012, and was then certified as a Sacred Passage Doula in July 2020, by the Conscious Dying Institute of Boulder, Colorado.
I have participated in and led many people through their end-of-life passages with compassion and grace over the years. I currently offer a Best 3 Months end-of-life planning tool for those with a terminal diagnosis, and also for those who are currently healthy but looking ahead.
I am available at all life stages for guidance and support, and during final transitions.
As an interfaith minister, my current passion is to craft and celebrate gloriously personal memorials and life celebrations. I came to this, after being called upon by many people who don’t have a church home and pastor, or who have found traditional church funerals to be less than personal tributes for the deceased, and lost healing opportunities for the bereaved.
Please visit my Musings page for weekly (and sometimes daily) blog on this site. I am also attempting to create and stick with a regular video blog, and contribute other content to my various Facebook and Instagram pages, so please feel free to follow me there! I'm also working on my forthcoming book: Passionate Grief: Coming Home to Life’s Greatest Losses with your Deepest Love and Longing.
It is my honor and privilege to offer personalized memorials, tributes, and Life Celebrations in your faith or secular tradition. I celebrate weddings and other rites of passage, too!
I am available to speak with groups large and small, live or virtually, on many topics, including but not limited to love, life, death, aging, grief, forgiveness, acceptance and healing.
