Lifelong Learning

A lesson a day.

Since its inception in 1971, Kendal has worked to transform the way society views aging and retirement, stressing the need for lifelong fulfillment and contribution in the later years of life. Efforts to continuously learn and grow have been nurtured by a number of partnerships and programs over the years, but none have been as important as the Lifelong Learning initiative.

A collaborative undertaking, the establishment of this program has helped to foster the natural outgrowth of Kendal’s commitment to continuing learning. We look forward to helping to seed the next generation’s growth as this program evolves at Enso Village.

Learning from experience: volunteering at Enso Village

There will be many ways to practice generosity here at Enso Village: giving of your time, material goods, money, energy, work, and love. And there is virtue in both giving away what you have and in allowing others to give by receiving. As spiritual director Susan O’Connell has said, it’s a reciprocal relationship in which the giving and receiving are interdependent.

As it is in the Buddhist tradition, service is core to the Quaker philosophy and puts into practice several of Kendal’s values, such as taking responsibility for our role in maintaining the larger communities in which we live and work, and fostering a culture of generosity, encouraging and developing full use of our time, talents, and resources.

How this commitment will come to be expressed and which communities or organizations will benefit from those efforts will be determined in large part by you, our future residents. We look forward to working together in order to create bonds and strengthen our whole community, both within the Enso Village campus as well as beyond.
