Zoom link to be provided


The Hospice Palliative Care Association is proud to host Frank Ostaseski who will share an online talk on the topic of 'Finding Rest in the Middle of Things'.


We often think of rest as something that will come to us when everything else in our lives is complete: At the end of the day, when we take a bath; once we go on holiday or get through all our to-do lists, we imagine that we can only find rest by changing our circumstances. This place of rest is, however always available to us. It is a choice—a choice to be alert, to bring your attention to this moment.


Frank Ostaseski is an internationally respected Buddhist teacher and visionary cofounder of the Zen Hospice Project, and founder of the Metta Institute. He has lectured at Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, leading corporations like Google and Apple Inc., and teaches at major spiritual centers around the globe. Frank is the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Humanities Award from the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

He has accompanied over 1000 people through the dying process and trained thousands of healthcare clinicians and family caregivers around the world. His groundbreaking work has been featured on the Bill Moyers PBS series On Our Own Terms, highlighted on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and honored by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He is also the author of The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully.
