Episode 179: Author John Eric Baugher, PhD

Transcript for EP #179: Contemplative Caregiving with Dr. John Eric Baugher.  Pioneering educator and researcher John Eric Baugher was just eighteen when his mother was murdered.  Filled with rage, John felt he was fated to join his mother's killer in life imprisonment.  Not behind bars, but behind psychological walls of unresolved grief and anger.  How he channeled his grief and discovered compassion and even humor in the face of death is at the heart of John's book, "Contemplative Caregiving: Finding Healing, Compassion and Spiritual Growth Through End of Life Care" - an indispensable guide for end-of-life caregivers and anyone seeking to transform experiences of caregiving and grief.
