Dr. Robin is at V to the Tenth, an event marking the 10-year anniversary of V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women. "It's about compassion overflowing, it's about women and solidarity, it's about hope and healing, it's about restoration for injured souls," she says. Dr. Robin talks with spiritual teacher and author Elizabeth Lesser and Buddhist teacher Joan Halifax Roshi, who share insights into their personal spiritual journeys and teachings.
Elizabeth is the co-founder and senior adviser of Omega Institute, the country's largest adult education center focusing on health, wellness, spirituality and creativity. She also hosts a weekly Q&A seminar following Oprah and Eckhart Tolle's online class on A New Earth. Elizabeth talks with Dr. Robin about her life story, spirituality and the power of women.
Joan is the head teacher of Upaya Zen Center, a Buddhist monastery in Santa Fe. She is also the founder and director of the Upaya Prison Project, which develops programs on meditation for prisoners, and the director of the Project on Being with Dying, which explores the topics of death and dying. She talks with Dr. Robin about the necessity of suffering, the power of hope and the importance of experiencing the full breadth of human emotions.
