“A Good Death” — New York Times notes work of New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care

“A Good Death,” a new New York Times piece written by photographer/writer Joshua Bright, recounts the passing of John R. Hawkins, as “ushered from this life by a good friend, Robert Chodo Campbell, whom [Hawkins] had known for 23 years and who is a Zen priest and co-founder” of New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care.

“I had never looked closely for a long period at a dying person,” Bright writes, later adding, “It was when I put the camera down and became present that I could feel my fears melting away.” Click here to read this short but lovely piece and be sure to visit our friends at NYZCCC online here for more.
