Find Support at End of Life. Memorialize your legacy...

Let Beyond Morning show you how.

We cultivate your legacy while Supporting you in Life (and Death).

Beyond Morning

A Story Studio specializing in Legacy and End of Life.

Beyond Morning is a death-support and legacy organization that exists to help individuals remember, record, share, and celebrate their life’s story before the moment of death arrives. Then, when death is imminent, we offer compassionate care and support through the end of life doula model.

We teach individuals about the value of legacy and memoir and life stories, as well as the necessity of memorializing all of those things when they are no longer here to do so.

Our mission is simple: We are scribes, storytellers, and listening ears for both the living and the dying. For the dying, we are companions, friends, caregivers, and end of life support.

We accomplish our goals and mission in a number of ways:

  • Through our Story Studio, we write, record, share and celebrate memoirs for both the living and the terminally ill. We also create content (books, podcasts and more) on the topics of legacy and grief.
  • Through our End of Life Services, we offer death doula support, including bedside vigils, advance planning, funeral & end of life planning, companionship, grief support, and more.
  • For the general public, we provide death education and advocacy through support groups, initiatives, teaching and grief normalization.
  • For organizations and other death doulas, we offer training, media support, and more in order to encourage death-healthy conversation.

Beyond Morning believes that people not only fear death but also fear being forgotten. We exist to alleviate death & legacy anxieties by celebrating your life’s story and supporting you at the end of it.

About Garrett Drew Ellis

As long as I can remember I have been a writer. I began my professional career in 2005, working in the field of memoir, life review, death and grief. I have written over 30 books on behalf of others. Under my own name I wrote the book Write Until You Feel Better and the forthcoming In Rememberance and On Blood & Water.

In 2019 I added the role of end-of-life doula to my work life after training with the International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA). That same year, I founded Beyond Morning, LLC, offering end-of-life doula and memoir writing services to the terminally ill and elderly. I also serve as a Holding Space Consultant in Training and Death Study Circle Facilitator with the Institute for the Study of Birth, Breath and Death.
