For over 2000 years, Buddhist psychology has offered invaluable insights into the nature of the heart and mind, and transformed the way many people around the world handle life's challenges. But the ancient texts on which these remarkable teachings are based can be difficult to penetrate for modern seekers. Now, drawing on his experience as a monk trained in Thailand, Burma and India, as well as his expert psychology practice, Jack Kornfield provides an accessible, definitive guide to Buddhism for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. This important new work is in the tradition of his classic works A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, offering practical tools to coping with modern life and dealing with emotions such as fear, anger and shame. Kornfield also shares the illuminating stories of his students and fellow practitioners, as well as his own journey towards enlightenment, including his recovery from a violence-filled childhood. Here is a rare treasure that will give readers greater access to the secret beauty within - and without.

The purpose of this book is to promote the search for wisdom, which ER Doctor Kenneth B. Pierce believes is the foundation for the life that God intends for all people. Regardless of your current situation, Gods desire is that you become wise. It is through the acquisition of wisdom that we develop the ability to discern Gods will for our lives. God has promised us that wisdom is ours for the asking. The corollary is that if we lack wisdom, it is because we have failed to seek it and ask God for it. It is when we allow wisdom to enter our heart to become woven into the very fabric of our soul that we can truly test and approve Gods will. His good, pleasing and perfect will.

Many people seeking inner peace and self-cultivation look to the East for inspiration and guidance. Author Jack Kornfield himself pursued rigorous training in traditional Buddhist monasteries in Southeast Asia. Here he shares the fruits of four decades of study and practice in the East and the West, highlighting one essential insight: true wisdom is found nowhere else than right here in this very moment, as we go about our daily lives. We need not travel to an ashram or a meditation retreat--our households, relationships, and work lives give us profound opportunities to awaken our buddha nature, our natural wisdom and loving-kindness. In this book, Kornfield shares this and other key lessons he has learned studying with some of the most revered Buddhist masters of the twentieth century. Topics include: realizing our full potential, conscious parenting, common obstacles to awakening, spirituality and sexuality, enlightened political action, and much more. Previously in hardback.
