About the Author
J. Phillip Jones, MA, LMHC, is a psychotherapist who served as an interfaith hospice spiritual counselor in Hawaii for over 13 years.
Previous to his hospice work, Phillip travelled the country as a Hindu monk for six years, meeting teachers and practitioners of many faiths to learn about their traditions and host them at interfaith gatherings.
Phillip has encouraged, counseled and guided over 2,000 hospice patients of all faiths and beliefs, including those more spiritual than religious, on the art of dying and finding peace at the end of their lives.
He has trained over a thousand hospice staff and volunteers to understand the existential and spiritual issues that arise near the end of life and has served on the faculty of two National Hospice Conferences. Phillip is the author of an audio training CD entitled The Yoga of Living and Dying.
