Some are born to volunteer, some volunteer to heal their own wounds, and some have volunteering thrust upon them by life circumstances. Dr. Charles Garfield, founder of the internationally-recognized Shanti Project and author of Life’s Last Gift, artfully weaves together impassioned first-person accounts with insightful commentary on the skills to be learned from each volunteer experience. Tonight he discusses his work with monologuist, author, and hospice worker Josh Kornbluth. FREE
