One Body One Heart

Praise for One Body One Heart

 

“A compelling, very human account of living with dying, told through a spiritual lens. While offering no simple recipe for coping, Bob shows us that, whether or not we are facing a life-threatening prognosis, we can proceed to practice living with a keen and gentle awareness that “I will die, too,” open to all that life and illness can bring to the body, mind, and heart.”

— Elise Lark, PhD, Founder of Circle of Friends for the Dying, Oncology Support Program at HealthAlliance Hospital

 

“What happens when your idea of your life is rudely interrupted by the reality of your life, your life as it is? This documentary from John Ankele explores this provocative question. It is about interruptions and about meeting points. So much can be learned at meeting points and intersections: between Zen and Christianity, sickness and health, life and death, self and other.”

—Judy Lief, Author, Making Friends with Death: A Buddhist Guide to Encountering Mortality

"A powerful and inspiring video, about the braiding of faith traditions, and great open heart of practice."

—Joan Halifax Roshi, Upaya Zen Center

One Body One Heart Synopsis

We may know that all living creatures must die. Yet often it takes a diagnosis to make death real. As he confronts cancer of the pancreas, Bob Gunn draws upon his experience and practice as a psychotherapist, a Christian minister and a Zen priest to illuminate a way through that perilous terrain where fear and uncertainty would prevent us from living fully and joyfully in each moment.

John Ankele's new documentary One Body One Heart features an intimate dialog between Bob and Zen Master Roshi Pat O’Hara. Their reflections offer comfort, support, and indispensible guidance for all who are now (or one day will be) facing the difficulties of old age, sickness, and death.

Author and teacher Judy Lief writes: “What happens when your idea of your life is rudely interrupted by the reality of your life, your life as it is? This documentary explores this provocative question. It is about interruptions and about meeting points. So much can be learned at meeting points and intersections: between Zen and Christianity, sickness and health, life and death, self and other.”
