Beauty, Intimacy, and Reverence in End-of-Life Palliative and Pastoral Care

Chalice of Repose®

Music-Thanatology is a sub-specialty of palliative medicine, and derives profound spiritual inspiration and meaning from the Benedictine Cluniac tradition of monastic medicine. In that light, every moment, person, condition and event is one in which we can turn to greet, receive and meet one another “in a new and living way.” 

(Letter to The Hebrews)
