Item Description


Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet is an evocative examination of how we can respond to suffering, live our fullest lives, and remain open to the full spectrum of our human experience. The successful bidder will receive a copy signed by author Roshi Joan Halifax. Here's a link to an interview about the book with Roshi Halifax conducted by donor Phil Cartwright.

Recounting the experiences of caregivers, activists, humanitarians, politicians, parents, and teachers, incorporating the wisdom of Zen traditions and mindfulness practices, and rooted in Halifax?s groundbreaking research on compassion, Standing at the Edge is destined to become a contemporary classic. A powerful guide on how to find the freedom we seek for others and ourselves, it is a book that will serve us all.

Roshi Joan Halifax, Ph.D., is a Buddhist teacher, Zen priest, anthropologist, and pioneer in the field of end-of-life care. She is Founder, Abbot, and Head Teacher of Upaya Institute and Zen Center in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She received her Ph.D. in medical anthropology in 1973 and has lectured on the subject of death and dying at many academic institutions and medical centers around the world. She received a National Science Foundation Fellowship in Visual Anthropology, was an Honorary Research Fellow in Medical Ethnobotany at Harvard University, and was a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at the Library of Congress.

Included with the signed book is a set of 12 Upaya-themed notecards.

Due to the pandemic, Upaya Zen Center has closed its monastery to the public. However, Upaya now offers free online programs, trainings, retreats, and Dharma Talks. Donations are deeply appreciated so that Upaya may continue to offer such important programming and connection for the months ahead. See the program schedule here:
