Buddhist Contemplative Care Symposium Videos

BCC hmfeature video2We recommend you take time to watch some of the videos from our recent symposium on contemplative palliative and end-of-life care, Buddhist Contemplative Care, presented in partnership with the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care. Neuroscience research has demonstrated the effectiveness of meditation and mindfulness-based techniques in both patient healing and caregiver self-care, and this symposium was designed to give practitioners tools and insights to provide the most effective palliative and end-of-life care possible. See Dr. Diane Meier on Palliative Care: Deploying Mindfulness to Transform the Care of Serious Illness; Dr. Michael Kearney on Learning to Breathe Underwater: Towards a Self-Awareness Based Model of Self Care; BJ Miller on Vanishing Point: The Aesthetic Potential of Palliative Care; An Evening with New York State Poet Laureate Marie Howe; Koshin Paley Ellison and Robert Chodo Campbell on The Great Matter of Life and Death: Intimacy at the Bedside and with the Team; and more! All in all, a great resource for this very important and intimate field.
