Thinking Allowed: Spiritual Anthropology (Joan Halifax) – Part 1 (2000)
Visiting Tibet on pilgrimage and retreat, Joan Halifax, Roshi of the Upaya Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico, anthropologist, and author of many books, describes an extraordinary mix of beauty and emotion.
Bear witness to the spirit of the Lhimi Valley, last of the untouched land of the Tibetan peoples. Encounter the heartbreak of their diaspora and their palpable abandonment since the heads of all lineages have left, including the Dalai Lama and the young Karmapa.
For the Tibetans both spiritually and manifest, theirs is a story of the journey that never ends.
