Share

Joan Halifax is many things – activist, author, caregiver, teacher, Zen Buddhism priest – but in all her roles, she is consistently courageous and compassionate. Halifax runs the Upaya Zen Center in New Mexico, a Zen Peacemaker community she opened in 1990 after founding and leading the Ojai Foundation for 10 years. Her practice focuses on socially engaged Buddhism, which aims to alleviate suffering through meditation, interfaith cooperation and social service. In an intimate conversation with Pico Iyer, Halifax offers a unique opportunity to hear the stories behind her extraordinary life and to gain insight into her latest book, Standing at the Edge.
