If you:

  • love the idea of helping others be more at ease talking about dying, death and grief
  • like being with those who may be facing their own end
  • are moved to facilitate the transformation of others' attitudes towards life and death
  • maybe had your own experience of someone dying
  • love supporting someone grow through learning new things

AND you want to increase your ability, your credibility, and your confidence in this area, (not to mention standing out from others) then read on...

 

You might have had to take care of your parents or someone else close to you who has died, and realized the last thing you want is for your own death to be like that.

Or perhaps you’ve been an executor where the person who died was organized, and you understood what a huge blessing that is.

Maybe you just feel comfortable with this subject and want to help others  feel more at ease too.

Whatever your own circumstances, one thing you do realize is that with the onset of coronavirus, and an aging population in many places, more and more people are having to admit to something they have found unpalatable before –

that they themselves are going to die.

Would you like to play your part in making talking about death as easy and effortless as possible?

If you do, then join us in the Before I Go vision...

To have end-of-life plans be as commonplace as birth plans!

Can you imagine that?

It would mean that general conversations would include the word 'death' with no comeback; that death would no longer be a taboo topic; and that we would all be more prepared for when our own end of life arrives.

This Before I Go Academy training in end-of-life planning is part of that vision.  If this idea lights your fire, you want to make a contribution in this way to the world,  and have yourself, your family and others benefit from making good end-of-life plans, then welcome, you are in the right place!

Who am I?

Jane Duncan Rogers, founder of Before I Go Solutions and the B.I.G. Academy.

When my husband Philip died, I never for one moment imagined  I would end up working in this field.

I had been an award winning counselor and coach for over 25 years, having originally trained personally with the famous Louise L. Hay in 1990, working in the personal growth field in many different aspects. I'd  published books and tapes (well before the internet) and was helping small business owners to reach their full potential when Philip died.

Because of the questions he had answered in his last year, I was well prepared in some respects for the admin side of things afterwards. But there was much more we simply did not know about.

Fast forward to 2018, a year during which both my parents died.  They had completed a comprehensive end-of-life plan each, the one that Before I Go Solutions offers, now known as the Before I Go Method®.

My three siblings and I had no disagreements at all, over what was a pretty stressful period (my parents both died unexpectedly within the same week in 2018).

As my parents' executor, I simply had to follow all their thoughtful instructions. What’s more, it was easy to find everything, and I took great solace from knowing I was carrying out what they wanted (and that they had known I would do this).

I am so incredibly grateful and appreciative for the organised way they had so carefully thought everything through.

So I know from personal experience how hugely important this preparation work is, and I want to help you to help others do this too!

"This has been the best training I have done, and I have trained in many therapies! The level of support and knowledge has been exemplary. I have confidence I can begin to do this, I know I have much to learn but this is the only training I have completed feeling this. I haven't felt this inspired about anything since I did a cranial training 35 years ago!"

Weekly Live Coaching Sessions

These sessions offer you live support while you progress through the training at your own pace. They include a mix of Q&A time, partner exercises, study buddy get-togethers, presentations, discussion, videos, and role plays to help you become confident, clear and have the courage to bring this work to those you want to benefit.  They happen on Thursday evenings (UK time).

Part 1: The Personal - Your Own End-of-Life Plan

Part 1 of this programme is you completing your own plan, and this course is the one which your clients will get access to through you.

 

Here's what is covered:

Module 1: Lessening the Household Headaches

Module 2: Advance Healthcare Decision Making

Module 3: Looking After the Legals

Module 4: Designing Your Digital Life and Finances

Module 5: Taking Care of the Body

Module 6: Eulogies and Keeping It All Updated

This tried and tested Before I Go Method® has been developed over the last 5 years, working with individuals both on and offline to enable them to complete their end-of-life plans.  You can find the full contents  here, and it is this course you will be taught to facilitate.

DETAILS:

All modules are accessed through a dedicated learning platform, Membervault, with a mix of reading matter, video/audio lessons and thought-provoking questions to inspire you.

The weekly live coaching calls help you consolidate, get questions answered, discuss with other students, and provide you with an opportunity for accountability - making sure you do what you say you are going to do!

Part 2: The Practical - Doing Death Differently

 

Part 2 takes you through all that is needed to be able to communicate wisely and well with others about all aspects of end of life planning.  In these classes, we cover:

 

Class 1: Necessary end-of-life conversation skills – listening and talking so your conversations in all areas of this subject are fruitful, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate, in all situations.

Class 2: Understanding bereavement and the impact it has, so you can compassionately and wisely be aware of how best to support others at a difficult time.

Class 3: DIY death – the multitude of things you and your family need to know to enable engagement of a funeral director to be lessened, or not used at all.

Class 4: Advance Care Planning – how to make sure all the ducks are in a row for this to contribute to the good death that most people say they want, but don't get.

Including homework, this all leads to you having the foundations in place to move on to Part Three, where you are taught to apply what you have learnt so far in an easily structured and enjoyable way, to offer as a licensed facilitator of the Before I Go Method®

Part 3: The Practicing - Becoming a Licensed End-of-Life Plan Facilitator

 

Here, we apply all that has been learnt in a way that best meets the needs of your community, be it virtually or in person. This is what we cover in PART 3:

 

 

  • How to work with groups, online and offline, so you feel confident in running successful events.
  • A proven in-person group format that works to engage, inspire and result in your participants taking action.
  • The Before I Go Method® group outline so you can feel reassured they are learning what they need to know.
  • How to access the Before I Go Method online course, for your clients benefit and a great plus to your own offering.
  • Action-taking skills, so you and your clients can be sure the 'doing' will happen.

BONUS 1:   Assisted Dying. This module is for those particularly interested in helping participants explore the moral and ethical dilemmas this topic brings.

Part 4: The Promoting - Marketing Your End-of-Life Planning Service

Here we give you an introduction to how to really get yourself noticed, resulting in a steady stream of interested people. The topics covered in PART 4 will set you up to welcome your first client:

 

 

  • How to identify your ideal clients, so they can easily recognise themselves and be attracted to your work.
  • How to write/say what your prospective clients really want to hear, so they say yes to you really easily.
  • Pricing and money mindset – how to price your work and leave with the tweaks needed so that this drops away as an issue for you.

"The Before I Go Facilitator Training has been a chance to enhance my knowledge, skills and confidence with a view to creating and delivering supportive and informative workshops for those too afraid ‘to go there’, or blissfully ignorant of the fact that end of life planning exists. From learning to delivering, this is a humbling experience and ultimately a chance to change lives on so many levels, for the better.  You don’t often get to say that about a course you’ve been on" Trained Facilitator Nuala Lindsay, Scotland

"I loved this training! It has given me the background and comfort to help others develop a solid end-of-life plan. I can now talk from experience because I was able to get my own plan in order with a supportive group of colleagues during the training. Jane has a lovely way of making talking about death something that is normal (as it should be!). I definitely recommend this course!"

"I realized I was missing a very important element in my work helping people through their cancer journey, as I had not paid attention to the end of life process. The course has enabled me to ensure that my clients and their families have a good end of life experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and particularly found the mentoring system extremely useful"

Krista Hyer, President, Cancer Support Group, Mallorca

Frequently asked questions:

"The Before I Go Solutions Facilitator training course is rich and robust. This training empowers me to feel more knowledgeable and confident in the facilitation of family conversations related to end of life wishes. I am grateful to have the Before I Go Solutions in my training arsenal as I help families achieve a peaceful ending through advanced planning" Trained facilitator Maureen Kures, USA

"I love the fact I have completed my own EOL plan – and it has been a pleasure rather than a chore. We all know such endeavours don’t often make it to the top of our ‘things to do’ list. And yet, if not done, they remain a concern somewhere in our busy minds. It is truly liberating to get these plans made and as a consequence live a more fulfilling life. I thoroughly recommend this very informative course, with its role plays, video critiques, and real life stories that support the learning."
