Joan Halifax: The Voyage of a Lifetime

The Golden Thread
S1:Ep158 mins

Roshi Joan Halifax is a Buddhist teacher, Zen priest, author, anthropologist, and pioneer in the field of end-of-life care. Here, she tells of her path from her adventurous youth to zen buddhism, and the many people she met along the way, including Stanislov Grof, Joseph Campbell, Thich Nhat Hanh, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Bernard Glassman, and many others. She tells, with great feeling, how she became involved in helping the dying, and how she dealt with the death of her mother, and the impact it had on her personal understanding of Buddhism.
