Shanna Provost is an author, education specialist, funeral celebrant and certified death doula whose passion is taking people that one step further on their journey to accepting their inevitable death by helping them to get their affairs in order in a very practical way.

Her Dying Well website and Rest Easy Journal, first published in 2005, provide a pragmatic approach to leaving easy-to-follow documentation for those left to sort a loved one’s affairs after they have died.

Shanna’s workshop tools and guided exercises provide a space for people to make decisions about their end of life preferences, and to begin the process of gathering the relevant information and recording instructions in the Rest Easy Journal.

She is a Paul Harris Fellow, a member of the Southeast Arts Board, a recipient of the Governor-General’s National Emergency Medal and has various Red Cross Service Awards for her work in community development as a training practitioner and educator over the past 20 years.
