Zen Hospice Project
At Zen Hospice Project, practitioners use the wisdom of Buddhist teachings and mindfulness techniques as cornerstones in their care for the bereaved. Through careful and non-judgmental attention to the unique experiences, feelings, and needs of their clients, the care-givers assist people in moving towards their grief, difficult as that may be (credit lynn). By fully experiencing their losses and remaining open to the comfort and wisdom that paradoxically arise from turning towards what is difficult, people can experience less suffering and greater ease in their journey through grief and loss.
