Sale USA hardback edition. In this major new work, one of the leading Western spiritual teachers of our time offers a radical approach to living in today's world.
There's much more to psychology than we know in the West. A vast range of new possibilities, teaches Jack Kornfield, are found in the teachings of the Buddha, who pointed us toward a vision of radiant human dignity shared by all.
Drawing on his experience as a monk in Thailand and Burma, as well as his professional expertise, Jack Kornfield provides an accessible guide to Buddhist psychology and its profound applications to the dilemmas we face today. He shares dramatic stories of others who experienced enlightenment through their practice. And he recalls his own spiritual journey, including his recovery from a violence-filled childhood.
Whether you are a practicing Buddhist or have yet to try meditation, this life changing book will introduce you to many helpful tools and exercises that will lead you towards inner wisdom and help you see the world afresh. The Wise Heart is a rare treasure that offers you greater access to the beauty within - and without.
"It's encouraging to find Westerners who've sufficiently assimilated the traditions of the East to be able to share them with others as Jack is doing. May such efforts further the peace of all beings." The Dalai Lama.
"A transformative gift from one of the great spiritual teachers of our time." Alice Walker.
