Shanti Nilaya

A healing and growth center founded in Escondido, California, in 1978. The name means "final home of peace" and the organization is concerned with the work of physician Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, author of the book On Death and Dying (New York, 1970). An extension of Kübler-Ross's earlier well-known "Life-Death and Transition" workshops, Shanti Nilaya offers short and long-term therapeutic sessions connected with the experience of death and the question of life after death. The Shanti Nilaya Newsletter, giving news of the work of Kübler-Ross and Shanti Nilaya centers, is published from the center, now located in Virginia: General Delivery, Headwaters, VA 24442.
