We aim to make dying an experience that holds the potential for profound meaning and transformation for both the dying, and the communities supporting them.
The CEOLC Program was developed as part of a larger effort to improve end of life care in Canada. We are committed to our role as a leader in a revolutionary development of human awareness that is transforming how we live, die and relate to others.
Through 5 weekend modules scheduled over a 5 month period, students learn with leading clinicians and pioneers in the growing field of end of life care. Each month consists of in-class and independent experiential components, readings, and personal reflections.
Students are introduced to a multiplicity of tools and practices which allow them to serve the dying with sensitivity and skill while cultivating their capacity for presence and compassion through the practice of mindfulness techniques and simple rituals.
An innovative gathering of some of the most influential, stimulating and inspirational minds and change-makers; from leaders in the fields of end life care & medicine, to wellness, art and spirituality. Join us as we re-imagine, experience and reconcile our relationship and understanding of life and death. Join the movement to explore how we can transform how we die & celebrate life!
Our training program introduces a contemplative dimension to end of life care through educating and enhancing a trainees' fluency in the bio-psycho-social-spiritual and legal, ethical and medical dimensions of caring for the dying and preparing them to serve in a variety of environments including private homes, hospices, and community organizations.
