Synopsis: Sale edition. A Buddhist way of understanding personalities, emotions and relationships. Written in a playful and accessible way, this is the first general-audience book based on the Tibetan system known as the Five Buddha Families - an insightful way of understanding human behaviour and promoting personal growth. Each of the five energies is associated with a particular way of perceiving and interacting with the world. Each has its intelligent and confused aspects, and each has a rich array of qualities.
"An engaging and insightful exploration of the light of wisdom within the darkness of confusion." Tara Bennett-Goleman.
"Rockwell has created a wonderful guide for understanding ourselves in relationship to others. This book offers a deep appreciation of the energies that move in each of us." Margaret Wheatley.
"A wise tool for self-understanding, this book uses the insights of Buddhist psychology to show how basic energy patterns present themselves as different personality types, and how understanding these energies can help us integrate spiritual practice into daily life." Helen Palmer.
