Buddhist Arts of Ministry and Leadership: A Buddhist Perspective on Care of the Dying

Joan Halifax, founding teacher of the Zen Peacemaker Order, delivered the third in a series of four lectures during the 2006-07 academic year, organized in conjunction with a new course entitled "Buddhist Arts of Ministry and Leadership: Teaching and Adapting Meditative Skills." These public lectures provide a chance for members of Harvard University and the Divinity School's larger community to hear about the work of leading exemplars of Buddhist ministry who are active in the United States today.

This talk is introduced by Janet Gyatso, Hershey Professor of Buddhist Studies, who co-teaches the Buddhist ministry course with Cheryl Giles.
