Our Mission and Values

Our Mission

Our mission is to enhance the experience of care for caregivers and care recipients and to inspire each other to live fully in the face of the universal experience of loss. We do this through teaching mindfulness and compassion as practical tools to improve well-being, and by using conversation to bring loss out into the open.

Our Values

We see caregiving as a meaningful and deeply human activity.


We believe that serving others is a meeting of equals and is mutually beneficial. 


We welcome all persons to heal through deep connection and community, based on shared humanity. 

Universality of Loss

We recognize and accept that the experience of loss is universal and unites us in shared vulnerability.


We are rooted in the Zen Buddhist tradition, teaching that all beings are united by their dependence on one another.


We are committed to witnessing and meeting suffering with an open heart.


We practice being with things as they are, without judgment.
