Barbara Becker has dedicated more than twenty-five years to partnering with human-rights advocates around the world in pursuit of peace and interreligious understanding. She has worked with the United Nations, Human Rights First, the Ms. Foundation for Women, and the Grameen Bank of Bangladesh, and has participated in a delegation of Zen Peacemakers and Lakota elders in the Black Hills of South Dakota. she began a 365-day blog when my earliest childhood friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and was living out the last year of her life. During that time, she was completely absorbed by the question Can we live our lives more fully knowing some day we will die? That resulted in a beautiful book, “Heartwood: The Art of Living with the End in Mind.” Join us in conversation about a key facet of the human experience!
