The term ‘Deathwalker’ was first coined by Zenith Virago, founder of the Natural Death Care Centre
in Australia. A Deathwalker is a person who walks the journey towards their own death as openly, courageously and as best they can. They’re also available to walk with someone else on their journey towards death, to walk with those who are supporting someone else who is dying and to walk with those who are grieving, offering guidance and care to inform and empower them.Kerry Sunderland
