Everything in life is temporary, including life itself.
Decide to say Yes! to the gift of now!





Enrich the lives of others as well as your own life by becoming a Certified Grief Coach.  Millions suffer the loss of loved ones each year and the painful emotions of loss can seem unbearable.  Work through any personal unresolved grief in order to become fully present to your clients.  Learn to take your clients from pain to peace, heartbreak to happiness, and from grief to gratitude in the shortest time possible.  This program is accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF)


Dora Carpenter’s online self-coaching courses will inspire and motivate you to wake up loving life. It’s like having your virtual coach in your back pocket. After working in the death care industry for many years and hearing countless stories of unfulfilled hopes and dreams being buried in the cemetery, she knew that she had to do more. How can there be more cherished memories at the end of life and less guilt and regret? How can individuals be inspired and encouraged to find happiness, fulfillment, and satisfaction in the precious gift of now? These questions birthed her passion for helping individuals move beyond life's challenges, transitions, grief, and fear.  Programs are self-directed and can be completed at your own pace from the comfort of your home or anywhere there is an internet connection.
