Lessons from End-of-Life Caregiving

By Garrison Institute

As part of our “Garrison Talks at the JCC” event series, Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell, Rabbi David Ingber, and Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie had an intimate conversation about their experiences giving end-of-life care and the many lessons it has taught them. The evening centered around the new book, Awake at the Bedside: Contemplative Teachings on Palliative and End-of-Life Care (co-edited by Ellison and Matt Weingast), and included poetry readings, personal stories, and a Q&A.

Some of the key questions they discuss:

  • How do we understand death?
  • What is the current state of end-of-life health care?
  • How do we give care without becoming depleted?
