The Earthside vision began in 2006 when Earthside Founder and Creatress, Raiya Iverson, began her career working in a local Cancer Hospital. Her passion for people and her ability to connect on a soul level with her patients led her on a path to search for a deeper way of connecting with people. As hospital policies continued to mute her abilities to connect the way patients needed and wanted, it became apparent that her original path into nursing was course correcting, and steadily coming to an end. Over time, she identified and embraced, her desire to hold a more holistic foundation in her caregiving, which led her out of the hospital system and on her own path as a "Life Doula": caring for the birthing, the dying and everything in between, as well as a Student Midwife, Womb Keeper, Myrrhophore, Reiki Master Practitioner, QHHT Practitioner and the owner of Earthside Holistic which was established in February of 2018, where she started the FIRST End of Life Doula (EOLD) Certification Program in Utah. Raiya proudly taught her first EEOLD class in the summer of 2018 in St. George Utah and continues to offer courses locally and abroad. She has been a guest speaker on several recent podcasts about Death & Grief, as well as other subjects such as Womb Alchemy, Sacred Sexuality, Angels, Dreamwork, Mercy, Forgiveness and LOVE. Her desire and passion to spread awareness about these topics are apparent in the healing modalities she offers.
Raiya has a deep desire to bring her community together for the healing of the Collective. She aptly deemed Earthside's motto: "Community, not Competition", stating that "We are all in this together." Raiya continues, while holding her hand on her heart, "I have a passionate belief that others teaching on topics such as Death Doula, Sacred Sexuality, Womb Healing etc. are not my competition, but rather, my beautiful allies". She continues, "The more people these allies bring into the Collective awareness and healing, caring for each other, the more exposure we all get in these professions to take care of everyone in our Communities! We are all mutually benefitted... how amazing is that?!"

Earthside Vision & Mission:
Earthside believes in the holistic practices of caring for each other and the world. Everything we do is based around the betterment of people and planet. It is our intention to offer, teach and practice healing, holistic, thorough, evidence-based culture of care standards that every person deserves...
Earthside bases its principles and teachings on the concept of LOVE. We Love what we do, we Love who we serve, we heal through Love, even in Death. We believe that all things are an act of Love, or a call for Love. Earthside is here to serve our communities and leave them better than we found them.
Our Earthside Angels™ are what bring the vibrant importance to our Earthside End of Life Doula program. We are a tribe of Doulas and Caregivers and we are here to support you long after you have certified with us. We also LOVE and fellowship all Doulas from any certification program to be part of the Earthside tribe! We hope to start having our Earthside Angel™ Coterie(s) again now that covid has declined.
Earthside supports all those who practice and engage in these healing standards. Our motto: "Community, not Competition". Earthside believes in transparency and we will be happy to provide what information & links we know about our competitors/allies so you can compare Earthside with other programs. We support our "competition", in all healing modalities, because we deeply and sincerely believe in the importance of healing the Collective, and other programs and facilitators only enhance the value of what we do!!
