Summer 2021 - Collaborative Spotlight
In-Person Networking and Socializing
After a year of virtual gatherings, we returned summer of 2021 to in-person networking and socializing!
On the hot, summer afternoon of July 15th, 2021, the rain stopped and the clouds parted just in time for the collaborative’s second, in-person, Member Networking Happy Hour.
This very special outdoor event was held at the beautiful Half Moon Farm, located near Kipling and Colfax, in Lakewood. They are a community-forward, flower & vegetable farm, focused on sustainability, education, diversity and inclusion.
The weekday party was hosted by the collaborative’s affiliate member, Emily Nelson, founder and CEO of Be A Tree Cremation, Denver's environmentally-friendly water cremation.
During the hour-and-half long event, in collaboration with our host and special guests, Erin Merelli and Lauren Carroll of Denver’s Deathwives, they facilitated an on-site, live-streaming event for their members, which included interviewing some of our many attendees. This was one of the highlights of the afternoon to bring the deathcare and death conscious community together in person and on live stream.
The Colorado End-of-Life Collaborative would like to send a shout-out to Rooney at Half Moon Farm for sharing his lovely space with us. He welcomed our group with open arms, and we are grateful.
Also, a special thank you to our gracious affiliate member, Emily Nelson, for hosting the event and for providing refreshments.
Thank you to all of our doula and affiliate members for attending and participating in this event. We look forward to seeing everyone, again, in the fall for more in-person networking and socializing.

Collaborative Spotlight - Virtual Roundtables
The Colorado End-of-Life Collaborative has a great group of members, both doulas and affiliates, who bring a wealth of information, knowledge and experience. That got us to thinking…how can we share this knowledge with the community?
Collaborative Spotlight - Virtual Care and Support
The year 2020 taught us that we must learn to adapt how we provide care and support as end-of-life doulas. Like many other professions, we find ourselves adapting to providing our clients with virtual services via telephone and video calls.
Collaborative Spotlight - 501(c)6 Non-Profit Status
CEOLC Announces 501(c)6 Non-profit Tax Exemption Status – The CEOLC received its tax exemption status from the IRS! We are now officially a 501(c)6 non-profit membership organization, technically falling into the category of “business league.”
Collaborative Spotlight - CEOLC Launches New Website
This new website is the product of a dream to unify a community of professional end-of-life (EOL) doulas who work to empower & support one another, rather than compete with each other. We are always stronger together! Not only does this dream bring EOL doulas together, it includes many local affiliate businesses & organizations, our community & the end-of-life industry. This new model of collaboration instead of competition has the potential to change the way we collectively think & feel about death & dying—the way we live our lives to die well when that time comes.
