Summary
After author John Baugher's mother was murdered in 1987, he felt that he was fated to join her killer in life imprisonment not behind bars, but behind psychological walls of unresolved grief and anger. Baugher turned to hospice volunteering as a way to channel his experience, marking the beginning of a twenty-five year journey of exploration in both public hospices and prison hospice programs and the possibility of discovering compassion and even humor in the face of death. In this book, Baugher weaves together insights from his experience with those gleaned from interviews with dozens of hospice volunteers from widely varying backgrounds. Contemplative caregiving can be a spiritual practice in its own right a practice that parallels the benefits of mindfulness while extending them beyond the personal level to inspire compassionate shifts in families, hospitals, and broader spheres of society
