Lions Roar : May 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN MAy 2009 80 engineers after stress reduction had failed as a motivator, Tan-Chade Meng, who calls himself Google’s “Jolly Good Fellow,” called Bush. Before too long, Bush says, “We de- cided to develop a course on mindfulness- based emotional intelligence. The real goal was to bring mindfulness in, but we knew that it had to appeal to the engineers. dan Goleman gave a talk on the connection between mindfulness and emotional intel- ligence. We then advertised a course, and in about the first four hours, 150 people signed up for Search Inside yourself: Mind- fulness-Based Emotional Intelligence. Nor- man Fischer, I, and other teachers have been refining it over the course of a year, and we’re about to teach the fifth iteration. We’re learning a lot about ways to see mind- fulness in the workplace. Scientists and en- gineers see it in the context of the neurosci- ence of meditation, and the SIy program helps them to work with the mind-body connection at a hands-on level.” The other project that’s taking up a lot of her current attention came from an even more unlikely source. “A chaplain from the Army found me,” she says, “which has led us to do a retreat for chaplains and medics. They see so much horror that they suffer from what they call ‘compassion fatigue,’ or ‘lack of resilience.’ Of course, this work raises many ethical issues that we’re look- ing at carefully as we go.” It’s natural to op- pose war, but what about taking care of the warriors, our fellow citizens? “The military is a huge area of moral concern in Ameri- can life,” Bush says, “and Buddhists haven’t looked at it much at all.” The Zen Hospice Project, founded in 1987, arose from the experiences of caring for dying residents at the San Francisco Zen Center. It grew into a service for the larger community—caring for dying peo- ple with no overt element of Zen involved. Its founder, FranK ostasesKi, helped to make Zen Hospice unique, and highly successful, by creating a model in which volunteers, residents, family members, specialists, and those simply interested in the dying process could learn together on an equal and open basis. In 2004, he founded the Metta Institute, in Sausalito, G������� E�������� �� ��� F������� �� P��������� ��� S����������� Kait is passionate about integrating Buddhism and women’s psychology into psychotherapy to help clients through the bereavement process.
