“We ignore to our detriment the last 50 years of scientific breakthroughs about death as well as the non-ordinary experiences of tens of thousands of men, women and children,” according to Kovacs. Until we can balance birth and death and realize the sacredness of both, we cannot live life fully.

ABOUT THE KAMLAK CENTER: Aimed at changing the way we look at death, The Kamlak Center was founded in 2002 as a publishing company and a teaching center. We confront the belief that there is nothing but matter, that death is the end of everything. We embrace the new worldview that there is nothing but life, birth and death are events in time and space, and grief can open us to this new consciousness. Dr. Betty J. Kovacs has spent decades researching how the understanding of death has influenced the development of our consciousness. The Kamlak Center's events, articles, books and other products are based on this research, her own experiences surrounding death, and the new scientific research that supports the survival of consciousness.
