Zen Hospice

Join Good Grief Radio Show Host, Joe Stinson, as he talks with Frank Ostaseski, Guiding Teacher and Founding Director of the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco, CA.  Frank has introduced thousands in the United States and Europe to the practices of mindful and compassionate care of the dying. Inspired by a 2,500 year old Buddhist tradition and guided by the principle that dying is much more than a medical event, Zen Hospice Project (www.zenhospice.org) provides residential care and volunteer training programs that seek to cultivate wisdom and compassion through service. Each year over 100 volunteers provide an estimated 20,000 hours of service to 200 people facing death from cancer, AIDS, and other illnesses.
