NT Mag community

NATURAL TRANSITIONS MAGAZINE has connections with diverse groups in the world of end-of-life care. We are staffed by a small and dedicated, largely volunteer staff, including volunteer writers, photographers and illustrators. Contact us if YOU are interested in volunteering.



Natural Transitions is good news for all of us; it demystifies the universal process of letting a loved one go into death and shares heartwarming ways of honoring that inevitable and sacred occurrence.

Natural Transitions Magazine fills a unique and much-needed niche in the social conversation around approaching the end of life with intention and care.

JENNIFER BALLENTINE, Director of Life Quality Institute


Packed with meaningful information, NTM is not only educational, it’s actually a spiritual gift. It’s not only for people working in end-of-life care; the stories and messages are relevant to all. I keep NTM stories in my toolbox for inspiring me to live the best life – and death – as possible.

ISABEL STENZEL-BYRNES, Organ donation advocate, Author of  The Power of Two and hospice educator


 A practical, inspiring and vital source of news and information, Natural Transitions Magazine is a must-read for anyone interested in end-of-life and death care issues.

MARK HARRIS, Author, Grave Matters and former environmental correspondent for the LA Times Syndicate.


Grief is not a finite process – it’s not over in a day, or months or even years.  Each issue of Natural Transitions takes me to a new level and understanding of loss.  It helps me cherish the memories for those I have lost and treasure the moments I have now and prepare for future losses.

CYNDA COLLINS ARSENAULT, Co-founder of Secure World Foundation promoting cooperative solutions for space sustainability and the peaceful uses of outer space.
