Integrating insights from over two decades of engagement in hospice care with contemplative social science research, this heartfelt book offers practical lessons on the transformative possibilities of compassionate end-of-life caregiving. Whether you are caring for a loved one with cancer or dementia, working in the field of health care, or grieving the loss of a loved one, Contemplative Caregiving offers encouragement for showing up to the fullness of life in whatever those circumstances may be. The talk will include time for group discussion and a guided meditation practice. Copies of Dr. Baugher’s book will be available at the event.
