Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If we want to find inner peace and wisdom, we needn't move to an ashram or monastery. Our buddha nature—our natural warmth and insight—can be discovered right where we are, in the context of our relationships, our family lives, and in our efforts help and serve others. Popular spiritual teacher Jack Kornfield shares this and other key lessons gleaned from more than forty years of commited study and practice. A student of some of the most revered meditation masters of the twentieth century, Kornfield offers keen observations about the rise of mindfulness practice in the West and shares his insights on finding freedom right where we are.

Topics include:

   • How to cultivate loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity

   • Conscious parenting

   • Overcoming the common obstacles to awakening

   • Spirituality and sexuality

   • Commiting ourselves to easing the suffering in the world

   • The way of forgiveness

   • And much more
