Abstract: Using an ethnographic approach, I portray the experience of being a volunteer caregiver at Zen Hospice Project, a Buddhist inspired hospice. I look primarily at three distinct, yet inextricable aspects of the volunteer culture: service, community, and spirituality. Using these as the guiding ideas, I examine facets such as the volunteer journal, humor at hospice, the notion of a good death, and the value placed on being with, rather than doing for, the hospice residents. I use the four bramhaviharaslove, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimityas another lens for understanding volunteer culture. I conclude by discussing notions of responsibility and creativity that are not dependent upon control and suggesting surrender as a possible alternative to the classical notion of acceptance in the mourning process.
