Our Values

We see caregiving as a significant and deeply human service.

Our work is grounded in practical expression of the universal spiritual values of compassion and service.  The Zen Hospice Project approach reflects a decades-long association with contemplative traditions and  practice.  

  • We value  mindful and wholehearted engagement with the present moment and seek to bring this awareness to everything we do.
  • We value the lived experience that dying is both sacred and unknowable, which allows us to be fully present to whatever we meet without preconceptions.
  • We value our interdependence and shared impermanence through which we can most intimately serve and support each other in living and dying.
