Zen Hospice Project

The “Zen” in our name reflects our approach of bringing mindfulness and compassion to our care for the dying, their caregivers, and the bereaved.  This approach is grounded in the 2,500 year-old teachings of the Buddha, especially as they relate to coping with death and dying. The Buddha taught that life is happiest for those who learn to meet change, loss, and the eventuality of death with equanimity and kindness. Doing so can enhance one’s understanding and love of life.
