Publisher Comments:

Perhaps the most important book yet written on meditation, the process of inner transformation, and the integration of spiritual practice into our American way of life, A Path with Heart brings alive one by one the challenges of spiritual living in the modern world. Written by a teacher, psychologist, and meditation master of international renown, this warm, inspiring, and expert book touches on a wide range of essential issues including many rarely addressed in spiritual books. From compassion, addiction, and psychological and emotional healing, to dealing with problems involving relationships and sexuality, to the creation of a Zen-like simplicity and balance in all facets of life, it speaks to the concerns of many modern spiritual seekers, both those beginning on the path and those with years of experience.

A Path with Heart is filled with practial techniques, guided meditations, stories, koans, and other gems of wisdom that can help ease your journey through the world. The author's own profound — and sometimes humorous — experiences and gentle assistance will skillfully guide you through the obstacles and trials of spiritual and contemporary life to bring clarity of perception and a sense of the sacred into your everyday experience. Reading this book will touch your heart and remind you of the promises inherent in meditation and in a life of the spirit: the blossoming of inner peace, wholeness, and understanding, and the achievement of a happiness that is not dependent on external conditions.

A Path with Heart shows us how we can bring our spirituality to flower every day of our lives. It is a wise and gentle guidebook for an odyssey into the soul that enables us to achieve a deper, more satisfying life in the world.

I have a huge crush on Jack Kornfield. His writing makes me think he is funny and kind. He also suffers no fools and manages to answer all the possible questions of the skeptic.

Good stuff.

A Path With Heart is the most accessible meditation guide that I have ever encountered. Kornfield goes into great detail about the integration of the mind, body, and heart, and how disciplining each through meditation can lead to a deepening awareness of ourselves. Through his experiences as a student and as a teacher, he describes the common difficulties and demons we face as we start listening to our body and heart with compassion. It is fantastic for those beginning meditation for the first time.
