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 modules scheduled over a 5 month period (4 virtual weekend sessions), you will learn with leading clinicians and practitioners in the growing field of end of life care. Modules consist of experiential components, readings, and personal reflections.
You will be introduced to a multiplicity of tools and practices which allow you to serve the dying with sensitivity and skill while cultivating capacity for presence and compassion through the practice of mindfulness and therapeutic relationship approaches.
Part of what we are doing now in this work of raising up the doula approach, recapturing a different way of being with dying is a way of recovering some of the legacies that we have lost touch with.

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.
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!
You cannot peel away death from life.
Part of the problem is we've sequestered the two.
