Read the press release here. Here's some exciting news (relevant for Buddhist chaplains) about one of the speakers...
Joan Halifax PhD, Buddhist teacher, Zen priest, medical anthropologist and pioneer in end-of-life care will present, “Being with Dying: Cultivating a Fearless and Compassionate Heart.” Abbot of Upaya Zen Center, a Buddhist Monastery in Santa Fe, NM, Dr. Halifax established the Project on Being with Dying to provide end-of-life education and services based in a compassionate and contemplative approach. She has taught in hundreds of medical and academic institutions around the world, and has been selected as a distinguished scholar in residence at the Library of Congress. Roshi Joan’s work with chaplains includes teaching cultural humility in a multicultural world.
