Sensei Campbell and Ellison

This podcast episode delves into the principles of contemplative care, highlighting a recent study indicating that people can learn to release joy by honoring their suffering. It features interviews with Chodo Robert Campbell Sensai and Koshin Paley Ellison Sensai, founders of the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care, discussing their mission to transform healthcare culture through compassion, wisdom, education, and Zen practice. The discussion covers the importance of community, dealing with the three poisons (greed, resentment, and delusion), and the concept of equanimity in facing the suffering inherent in healthcare. It concludes with insights on the preciousness of life, even in the face of death, and how contemplative practices can support healers in reconnecting with their purpose and the joy of their work.
