Soul Connected Conversation

There is a Soul Sitter in Each of Us

The Truth about Soul Sitting...
When you know what to do,
it transforms you from anxious to calm as you navigate the heartbreak
of transition and loss

Who is a Soul Sitter?

Wether you are a close loving relative or medical professional,
the compassionate space created with your dying loved one qualifies
you to be a Soul Sitter. Below are two general categories:

  • The Individual 

    A Soul Sitter is a caring individual who provides comfort or service to someone nearing their end-of-life transition. This may include being present for their final breath. This list of people include:

    family members, close friends and neighbors.  

  • The Team

    A team of medical professionals who are part of a the journey
    of a patient's final transition. These people may include:

    doctors, nurses, in-home caregivers, social workers, therapists, hospice volunteers and clergy.


Who is Soul Sitters for?

Originally designed as emotional support training for hospitals, caregivers and hospices ,
this training was provided to help the families in the final stages of their dying loved one.
Now family members, friends, neighbors and colleagues can all benefit from using the Soul Sitter tools.
But most times, people fall into vulnerable categories they are too fearful to admit.

  • The Uneasy Visitor

    For those not knowing how to act when they visit and their frail loved ones, Soul Sitters help people become emotionally prepared to see loved ones in their final stages.

  • The Speechless

    Soul Sitters helps alleviate emotionally overwhelm by providing support tools to put feelings into words so you can have that soul connected conversation.

  • The One In Denial

    For those who don't want to face this final time at all, we help create a safe space to face the inevitable with more peace and calm.


  • The Contrite

    Sometimes a loved one's terminal illness comes at an inconvenient time when guilt engulfs our efforts to visit.  We help make your moments together meaningful.

Imagine having the ability to confidently engage in a compassionate 

conversation with someone anchored in the grief process.

Meet Stacey Lievens

Best-selling author and pioneering thought-leader, Stacey Lievens (formerly Stacey Canfield) empowers those facing the loss of a loved one with guidance and resources that transform a frightening time of life into an experience filled with hope, dignity and love.


Stacey created Soul Sitters to provide a comforting place of community and expert insight for those in need of guidance during a time of life often neglected - before the death of a loved one. Her mission is to raise awareness and help redefine how our culture approaches the subject of death and loss, making sure that people have the tools to help them navigate the grieving and healing process in time to say a “good” goodbye without regrets.


"How wonderful to have some universal guidelines and tools that anyone can adopt and apply to be the most comforting and effective when called upon to help your loved ones at the time when you are most needed."

Dr. Bob Uslander

"Soul Sitters provides an avenue for those caring
for the dying to embrace

of life while dying for
those facing the reality of death."

...shows us how to say farewell in a deeply connected, heart-filled, sacred, loving way

"At a time of passing when most people feel inept and awkward about to how to be appropriate to their departing beloved, your work shows exactly how to see into the entire journey as sacred and the exact steps to take to satisfy each one's soul. Soul Sitters helps to lessen the anticipated dread and fear of losing a loved one. And it shows us how to say farewell in a deeply connected, heart-filled, sacred, loving way -
as well as how to continue the relationship in a new and perhaps equally
meaningful way from the other side. "


"Stacey Lievens has done a wonderful job explaining how people can provide love and care to the dying.
Not only will this book help the ordinary person facing the death of a loved one, but also professional care-givers. She provides useful insights that will encourage many people."
