I have contributed a chapter — “Three Yanas for Wise Caring: A Buddhist Perspective on Spiritual Care” — to editor Daniel S. Schipani’s Multifaith Views in Spiritual Care. It is the lone chapter about spiritual care from a Buddhist perspective in the book. The other chapters share approaches from six other religious perspectives.
I’m very satisfied with how the chapter came out, and the volume as a whole is, I think, really something special and incredibly valuable. You can buy a copy of the book in the shop section of Pandora Press’ official website here.
The publisher describes Multifaith Views in Spiritual Care this way:
This book was designed with a twofold purpose: to foster appreciation for the uniqueness and special gifts of seven faith traditions, together with a deeper understanding of commonalities and differences among them; and to encourage collaboration among spiritual care practitioners and scholars.
This is the second book I’ve had the privilege of contributing a chapter to in the last six months: I also wrote “May You Always Be a Student” for editors Cheryl A. Giles and Willa B. Miller’s The Arts of Contemplative Care: Pioneering Voices in Buddhist Chaplaincy and Pastoral Work (Wisdom Publications).
