Exploring Loss

Changing How We Think About Dying

By contemplating death, we can embrace life more fully

We dare to look at death directly and consider what we want for ourselves.
We consider how we might prepare for not getting what we want when our time comes.
At Zen Caregiving Project, we trust in the value of contemplating death as a way of embracing life fully.

Join us for a guided journey into death and dying

We dare to look at death directly and contemplate its place in our life.

We dare to look at death directly and contemplate its place in our life by providing the space and opportunity to speak about the inevitable openly and honestly.

We draw inspiration from the thousands of heartfelt conversations that Zen Caregiving Project has had over the years. Doing so enables us to more completely prepare for our eventual end-of-life experience, from emotional reactions to practical considerations.


Helpful resources for family caregivers

Facing our own death, or that of a friend or family member, often elicits powerful emotions. Based on our experience of over 30 years serving those reaching the end of their lives, we have created a list of resources to guide you through this difficult time.

We hope these resources are helpful and encourage you to share them with anyone you feel may benefit from them.
