иконографияOn TED: Joan Halifax: Compassion and the true meaning of empathy.

About the talk

Buddhist roshi Joan Halifax works with people at the last stage of life (in hospice and on death row). She shares what she’s learned about compassion in the face of death and dying, and a deep insight into the nature of empathy.


The [enemies of empathy] are pity, moral outrage, fear. We have a world paralyzed with fear. The word “terror” is [now] global.

Fear destroying empathy, so true!
