Joan Halifax is known for her work with the dying. In this book she relates how she found a life of her own through her contact with traditional cultures and through association with people like Alan Lomax, Stanislav Grof and Joseph Campbell. At first a refuge from painful mental anguish, Buddhism became, in time, a place of refreshment and self-rediscovery for her. It also gave texture to her life of service, leading to the practice of “engaged Buddhism” that is attentive to the suffering world and a healing presence within it.
