A Buddhist monk of more than twenty years, a chaplain in our US Army, and now working in hospitals, Venerable Guan Zhen knows about spiritual care. And when he works with families who are experiencing loss, he comes to them from a place of deep wisdom, understanding, and authenticity. He knows that when your loved ones die, it can feel like you have been shot in the heart with an arrow. And he will be quick to tell you, that while it hurts, you are meant to feel. Learning to work with your emotions is part of your path to enlightenment.
