A Buddhist Life in America: Simplicity in the Complexby Joan Halifax
First presented as a Wit lecture, Joan Halifax tells her story of a Western woman's struggle to find compassion. She describes her youth in the turbulent sixties, her extended periods of time among primitive peoples, her work ministering to the dying, and her commitment to Buddhism, in which she's an ordained priest and has received the transmission from Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh. Hanh is only one of her remarkable teachers. Halifax also collaborated with Joseph Campbell and has been called his "spiritual successor."
