Roshi Joan Halifax has had a career as colorful as the Hall of Philosophy platform from which she spoke. She’s a medical anthropologist, an author, a social activist and a Buddhist teacher who founded the Upaya Zen Center, where she serves as abbot. Halifax joins Krista Tippett, producer and host of American Public Media’s “On Being,” for a journey of introspection, existentialism and, ultimately, death.
