While death is inevitable, many of us choose not to think about our own mortality or that of our loved ones. This is not true of Frank Ostaseski, cofounder of San Francisco’s Zen Hospice Project, who has accompanied more than 1,000 people through the intimate process of dying. From a bedside vantage point he has listened to countless regrets and revelations, lessons that he passes on in his new book, “The Five Invitations." Ostaseski joins us in the studio to talk about what death can teach us about living full lives.
