I look foward to meeting and speaking with you!


The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion

Who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement,

Who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing

And face with us the reality of our powerlessness-

That is a friend who cares.

                      Henri Nouwen

About Rose Gordon

End of Life Care Practitioner and Consultant, Ceremonialist and Dreamwork Practioner

I began my work in the arena of death and dying in 1989; during a bedside vigil for a friend who was dying. You can read about that experience in the July 2014 entry on the Compassionate Care blog attached to this website. My experience with my friend and her extended family inspired my ongoing commitment to cultivate a depth and breadth of experience and practical skills in the compassionate companionship of individuals moving into the end of their life. I am equally committed to supporting those who love and care for them.

I know we can stand beside those who are dying and those who have life-limiting disease. We can navigate the emotions, decisions and actions that need tending. Our presence, compassion, skill and thoughtful attention can support those who are dying, and their families, as they tend to what is most essential to them and move towards peace and wholeness.

I am honored to serve you as an educator, source of support and guide- connecting you to the resources you need and offering my skills to foster your personal resiliency as you deepen your capacity to fully engage with the process as both witness and participant.

My work in Ceremony is guided and informed by years of ceremony with indigenous healers. While I do not claim to be of their lineage, their guidance, care and wisdom continues to inform my own work. 

I spent several years practicing Dreamwork with Drs. Pat and Larry Sargent and have participated in a Circle of Dreamers in Taos for over 28 years. I learned an "ecologically" respectful approach to dreams with a respect for their wisdom and support of our waking lives.
