Description
 
24 wise and compassionate Buddhist perspectives on crisis care--contemplative practices and spiritual principles to help individuals, families, and communities in crisis and the care providers who support them.
Refuge in the Storm presents a wide range of Buddhist perspectives on crisis care. Written by experienced chaplains, spiritual teachers, psychotherapists, pastoral counselors, medical providers, and scholars, the essays in this timely anthology explore a spectrum of personal and global crises: climate chaos, COVID, natural disasters, racism, social inequity, illness, and dying.

Drawing on Buddhist principles and practices, these essays offer a wealth of insights for supporting individuals and communities in crisis as well as preventing fatigue and burnout in care providers. The 24 essays in this anthology show readers how to:
Provide spiritual companionship to ill, aging, and dying clients
Infuse crisis care with mindfulness, compassion, prayer, and even playfulness
Prevent burnout with self-care practices rooted in Buddhist principles
Develop self-awareness and self-knowledge as a care provider
Pursue the path of Buddhist chaplaincy
