Roshi Joan Halifax is a Zen Buddhist Priest, 

anthropologist, civil rights activist, hospice caregiver, 

and the author of Being with Dying: Cultivating 

Compassion and Fearlessness in the Presence of 

Death. In this workshop, Halifax shares key lessons 

from her decades of work with the dying and their 

caregivers. Drawing from traditional Buddhist 

teachings, she talks about what it means to die, and 

what loved ones can do to ease the process. What

are the most pressing emotional and spiritual needs of 

people in the final stages of life? What becomes most 

important to someone who is dying?
