Compassion is an attuntement to exactly where you are, or exactly where the other person is, and to the particular face of the suffering that’s here now. And it has no agendas. And it has no “shoulds.” And it has no judgments. It simply wants to be with … suffering.
In 1987, Frank Ostaseski helped form the Zen Hospice Project, the first Buddhist hospice in America. In 2004, he founded the Metta Institute to provide innovative educational programs on spirituality in dying and to create a national network of end-of-life care practitioners. Frank teaches Buddhist retreats internationally. His workshops have introduced thousands to the practices of mindful and compassionate care of the dying.
