Kalein Centre is a campus dedicated to exploring and evolving how we live, how we learn, how we care for one another, and how we die. This is tender territory, rich in emotional experience. It offers us the ability to deepen our understanding, compassion and connection with humanity and spirit and, from this place, expand the possibilities of what it means to live a vital life from birth to the moment of death.
Shifting our social and cultural understandings of what it means to live fully through all stages of life, including end-of-life, can have a profound influence on everything from our mental and emotional health, to our senses of peace and personal dignity, to the ways in which we compassionately care for others, to the policies and strategies we evolve to sustain community vitality and resiliency.
Providing a place of beauty, tranquility and safety, where people feel free and supported in undertaking these explorations, is paramount. The vision of Kalein Centre is rooted in the creation and tending of this environment.
