My name is Joellyn St. Pierre. I am a Hermetic Kabbalist and Anthroposophist and now the founder of the Community of Spirits. I find myself in a strange place. Formally a Broadway performer, initiated by the death from AIDS of so many friends, associates and loved ones, I became a death midwife. For more than 18 years, I communed with the dying in hospices and hospitals around the US. Ultimately I wrote a book as a guide for those called to serve the dying. The Art of Death Midwifery: An Introduction and Beginner’s Guide has served as a text for hospice volunteers and professionals in palliative care since 2009. I also host a Facebook page for death midwifery.

A year ago my work began to evolve. Through rather miraculous circumstances, and once more initiated by the death of a loved one, which I may blog about here, it has become clear that my work now involves crossing the threshold of death to build a bridge between the so-called living and the so-called dead. This community is based greatly on Rudolf Steiner’s work and I will be referring to him a lot. I was not born a medium, at least not that I am aware of. But I am studying mediumship and other modalities to converse with the dead and the angelic hierarchies. In this blog, I will share with you my experiences. It is my desire to create a community of like-minded souls who understand that the dead are with us, right here, right now, at a higher frequency of vibration. We can and we should learn to raise ours to meet theirs to re-establish a communion of spirits that once was and has been lost…for the evolvement of both the so-called living and the so-called dead.

  1. I have read your book and it inspired me to mainly focus my hospice volunteering on vigil sitting.
    But to be really good at it, I need help raising my frequency to better “hear” the dying. I have meditated for years and am in tune with myself at a ripe old age. I also want my own “proof” that we can communicate with the dead. I respect Steiner. But want to know more. Can you advise?

    1. I find myself in the process of deepening my work with the dying to that of working with the dead. This truly astonishes me, Bente, as I would never have thought my life would go in this direction. I’ve studied and read…experimented and mentored…on and on…then suddenly synchronicity struck on this past winter solstice. I am a bit stunned with what is unfolding and cannot comment on it right now…but hopefully in time, I may have some worthwhile suggestions for those who would commune with the dead as an act of service. Stay tuned.


  2. Thoroughly enjoyed and gained much needed insight after reading your book, Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse?
    Thank you for writing it, it gave me resolution and hope.
