The Metta Institute and the Zen Hospice Project
The Metta Institute was developed as an outgrowth of the Zen Hospice Project
(ZHP), nationally recognized as a pioneering model in the movement to improve
end-of life care. From the website www.mettainstitute.org
we read: METTA is an ancient Pali (Buddhist) term meaning loving-kindness,
friendliness, benevolence and non-violence. It is a strong wish for the welfare
and happiness of others. We chose it as our name because we believe it
expresses the essential human quality that is most beneficial in the lives of
those who are dying and their caregivers.

Working with Spirit: Thoughts of Dorothy Davies
There are many levels of spirit people: there is the guide who chose to walk with you from the moment you arrived on this earth plane, there is the guardian angel who has attached themselves to you to guard you and protect you...There is no better way of living a life. With their help I have grown wiser, more able to give to others on this side of life, more capable of sharing their wisdom with those who come to me for readings for advice. With their help I have learned to appreciate every day, no matter what it brings me.

Everything's Coming Up Qi Gong
Several weeks ago I went through a spate of night sweats and hormone induced tossing and turning that left me wide awake at 2:30 or 3:00 every morning, heart pounding from the surge of adrenaline and completely unable to fall back asleep.... Each wee hour I'd grab a fresh dry night shirt and plod downstairs, resigned to Law & Order reruns and arguing with the cats for four hours about why they couldn't go outside right then.
After several nights of this I decided that I really had to do something better with my time.
