Board Certified Clinical Chaplain Jonathan Prescott is back with us to discuss end of life practices in the Zen Buddhist tradition.  Jon is a student of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.  Jonathan’s practice as a Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor is to “support people experiencing illness and end of life, foster effective caregiving and reconnect people with their innate wisdom and compassion”. As co-founder of the non-profit organization Radiant Light Zen, Jon works with a team to “offer contemplative training for people interested in beginning or deepening their meditation practice. [We] host several geographically dispersed online communities, mentor students, and train caregivers in the arts of compassionate care.”  In this discussion, Jon describes the beliefs of the Zen Buddhist about death and dying, and ways in which hospice professionals can support Zen Buddhist patients and families during bereavement care.
