Description About the author Contents
 
"The Arts of Contemplative Care" collects together in one volume the voices of pioneers in the widening field of "Contemplative Care"--an exciting new domain of vocational Buddhism informed by practices of compassion and meditation. This collection captures the richness and diverse practices of socially engaged Buddhism within the context of the fields of chaplaincy and ministry that until recently were dominated primarily by Judeo-Christian faith-traditions. Each of the essays is first-person, vividly showing days-in-the-life of a chaplain or pastoral worker and also presenting a distillation of lesson's learned and wisdom gained--and each of the sections in this volume focuses on the specific challenges present and skills needed in the different venues in which a chaplain might work: with the terminally ill and actively dying (and their families) in hospice; amid the ever changing hectic urgency of a hospital; with college students struggling to discover themselves and make meaning with their lives; helping the "low-density" populations of non-Christian religious people in the military keep peace within themselves and on the war-front; and with prisoners who's daily life is a hell realm many of us can't even imagine.
This book also includes a thoughtful recommended reading list, and pointers to a variety of resources.
