Edge States –

For the last few days I’ve been listening to Krista Tippett’s remarkable conversation with Roshi Joan Halifax, founder and abbot of the Upaya Zen Center.  Roshi Halifax talks about “edge states,” when caregiver are overwhelmed by their work in caring for the dying, and the numbness that can result. Roshi Halifax talks about the ways in which contemplative practice can provide healing.
