Susan Pelican, RN is a retired homebirth midwife and one of the early founders of the Davis Waldorf School. She is currently authoring a guide to conscious choices in death and dying from her experience with her husband’s passing. Susan brings practical and insightful knowledge of the conventional medical system surrounding end of life issues.

Heidi Boucher has been guiding families in home funerals and caring for the dead for over 30 years. Working out of Anthroposophy and closely with the mainstream funeral industry, Heidi has bridged both worlds bringing reverence and beauty to families taking a more hands-on approach.
