You don't have to be a chaplain or a Buddhist to see value in this book. I felt as though the author was sitting across from me, telling me about her life and her connections with people who were dying. I hope there will be another after this. Thank you Renshin Bunce. ...more

A Zen Buddhist chaplain's memoir, with many stories shining light on what it means to die, and some of the many different ways it can happen.

Renshin Bunce is a Zen Buddhist monk who works as a hospice chaplain. She describes her work well, with a clear and unaffected writing style that has provides a window into what her work is like, why you might want a chaplain in hospice even if you are not religious.

The book is a quick read. If you or a loved one is in hospice, or want to understand more about hospice, I’d encourage you to read it.
