Zen Caregiving Project
Amanda, a Zen Caregiving Project Facilitator, lived and taught in Southeast Asia in 2000 where she began Vipassana Meditation in the S.N. Goenka tradition. She discovered Zen Caregiving Project through a mindfulness grief group and became a volunteer caregiver in 2011, and later joined its staff as Volunteer Coordinator until 2014. Amanda completed Clinical Pastoral Education training at the UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals and was the unit chaplain in the Emergency Department, Acute Care for the Elderly, the Birth Center, and the Intensive Care Nursery. Amanda facilitates both our Open Death Conversations and Mindful Caregiver Education.
