Zen Hospice Project

We provide a spectrum of collaborative services that foster wisdom and compassionate service in end-of-life care, including residential hospice care, volunteer caregiver support, and public education.

Our Events are designed to support individuals hoping to find ways of living more fully with their own life-threatening or chronic illnesses, and the loss of loved ones to these. We also offer trainings designed for professionals who seek mindful and compassionate approaches to providing healthcare.

The “Zen” part of our name reflects our approach of bringing mindfulness and compassion to our programs. Through meditation practice and simple Buddhist teachings, we support people’s capacity to be present and open to whatever is happening in the moment. We also explore our own relationship to death and dying. Of course, these qualities of mindfulness, compassion, and reflection are not exclusive to Buddhist practice; Buddhist practice simply forms the basis of our approach.
