Giving and Receiving: A Conversation on the Role of Contemplative Practice at the End of Life

November 1, 2018
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Faculty House, Columbia University, New York

How do we bear witness? How do we respect uncertainty? How do we acknowledge fear? How do we listen? How do we care for ourselves? In this public conversation, we ask that participants explore what “contemplative palliation” may mean for our systems of care, health care policies, research, and developing technology? What does it mean to create a “culture of palliation”? What does caring for the dying teach us about how to best live and grow as a community? What do we value most?

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required via the event webpage

This event is hosted by the Research Cluster in Science and Subjectivity in partnership with the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care.
