Brad Hunter has practiced meditation since the early 70’s, first in the Zen tradition and then, in recent years, based on Theravada teachings. He has taught small groups and individuals for about 25 years and facilitated workshops and short retreats. Brad’s work and spiritual life have revolved around death, dying, grief, and trauma. His day job for over 40 years involved working in and managing cemeteries and crematoria. Twenty-five years ago, he studied and applied embodied meditative practices and perspectives to grief and trauma work. After entering semi-retirement, he taught courses in grief and trauma for Kings University College in London (Ontario) and graduated from Upaya’s Chaplaincy Program. Before COVID, he developed and implemented bereavement support programs for a local hospice. His ‘engagement with life’ took on a different tone and urgency when he was diagnosed with metastatic cancer three years ago. Brad periodically offers ‘conscious living, conscious dying’ workshops/retreats for various sanghas, hospices, and spiritual communities. He continues to meet with individuals one-on-one around grief and trauma issues and for meditation guidance. Since COVID, Brad has taught an online sangha for weekly meditations and day retreats.
