Frank Ostaseski Biography
With Eyes Open: A Conversation about Loss, Grief and Healing
First aired September 10 - 13, 2000
KQED's "Bay Window" television series presents With Eyes Open, broadcast nationally after On Our Own Terms. The first episode models the kind of conversation Moyers hopes will happen in living rooms across America-real people sorting through their experiences of loss and grief. With the guidance of Metta Institute® founder, Frank Ostaseski, seven people who have lost loved ones or who are facing terminal illnesses discover the transformation and healing that sometimes comes in grief's wake.
"In this culture we mostly see dying as a medical event. But in my experience, dying isn't primarily a medical experience, it's more an issue of relationships: my relationship with myself, with those I love; my relationship with the suffering of death itself. So the work of caring for the dying is a matter of facilitating those relationships."
