Zen roshi (teacher) and anthropologist Joan Halifax has spent much of her life exploring questions of life and death. Teaching at hospices and on death row, and traveling throughout radically different cultures, she has devoted herself to the study of what makes a meaningful life. Her new book, “Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet,” which Arianna Huffington called “essential reading for our time,” is the culmination of her lifelong study of mindfulness, compassion, and generosity. She ventures to answer the enduring question: How do we live well for ourselves and others at the same time? Emotion expert and director of UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center Dacher Keltner will interview.
