Buddhist roshi Joan Halifax works in hospice and on death row. In this Ted Talk, she shares her views on compassion, and the true nature of empathy. She points out that pity and fear are the enemies of compassion, and explains that compassion is a quality that we learn and develop in ourselves through our experiences, and the help of those around us.
