Earlier this month, the Garrison Institute and New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care (NYZCCC) presented the second semi-annual Buddhist Contemplative Care Symposium, an event designed to give practitioners tools to provide the most effective palliative and end-of-life care. The gathering encourages leading researchers, physicians, spiritual care providers, and patient advocates to learn from each other and grow as caregivers.

During a break at the symposium we sat down with Zen Buddhist priests and chaplains Robert Chodo Campbell and Koshin Paley Ellison, founders of NYZCCC, to discuss the increasing interest in end-of-life care, the importance of teaching contemplative care to physicians, and their partnership with the Garrison Institute.
