When does enlightenment come? At the end of the spiritual journey? Or the beginning? On After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, Jack Kornfield—author of the modern classic on American Buddhism, A Path with Heart—brings into focus the truth about satori, the awakened state of consciousness, and enlightenment practices today.

Course objectives:

  • Assess how to embrace the joys and sorrows of everyday life after experiencing a transcendent spiritual awakening
  • Integrate inner knowledge with outer expression and experience
  • Analyze how to embrace spiritual practice as an invitation to the truth
  • Plan to embrace our human feelings without judgment
  • Describe how to recognize the Buddha in each other and create community

"Perfect enlightenment" appears in many texts, Kornfield begins. But how is it viewed among Western teachers and practitioners? To find out, Kornfield talked to more than 100 Zen masters, rabbis, nuns, lamas, monks, and senior meditation students from all walks of life.

The result is this extraordinary look at the hard work we all must do—the laundry—no matter how often we experience ecstatic states of consciousness through meditation and other disciplines.

Sweeping in scope, and warmly told by one of American Buddhism's most trusted voices, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry is a work of both deep inspiration and daily instruction that cuts through the confusion about what enlightenment really is, who it comes to, and how it continues to inform and guide our spiritual lives.

An original audio adaptation of Jack Kornfield's book, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.

Reasonably good; I liked the message on CD # six, which defined "Ordinary Enlightenment" as being true to yourself while accepting what is. I stuck around to the end at CD #eight hoping for clues to "extraordinary enlightenment," but no luck.

a delightful background of experience and character development from a psychologist who reaches out to people with his personal views and history.

Great information on our humanness on the spiritual path. His voice is so soothing and the message, I found, went deep inside to a place that needed to hear, we are all on the path and there are challenges for all of us. So often I have thought of how Buddhist teachers are so far above where I am. I felt like the student in school sitting in the back row. It was nice to think of all of us in the front rows, as equals, sitting at the feet of the Buddha.

the many stories of others in their search the beautiful and the difficult are reminders of our shared human-ness. The many ways to reach some kind of "inlightenment" are sketched out as signs we too can follow.

I read the book years ago, and recently bought the
audio book. I have listened to it 9 times just in the
past 2 1/2 weeks. Every time I hear something new and am continually amazed at the wisdom. I love this
book. Can see how much I have grown and still need to. Jack Kornfield is wonderful!

No Mickey Mouse, no kidding --- this is the very best CD for people who have experienced a wondrous spiritual breakthrough and now must face day-to-day life again.
Gentle, thought provoking, detailed, and spot on. I've already ordered more to give to friends.
Thank you!

Don't miss this if you have not heard it before. These teaching stories cover many paths, various faiths and multiple teachers. The value of persistence, self-kindness and patience come through time and again in these stories and teaching. Wonderful!

I loved the hard copy book and now I can enjoy the book again on the go. While it is an abridged version of the hard copy book, everything I found most useful and insightful of the book is in this digital version. The content is so rich, it is something I continually need to read over and over. Listening to it now helps to get that same epiphany experience when I am on the go or just need to relax in the evening.

My Yoga teacher (who studied with Kornfield) introduced me to this book and it is an essential text in my library of spiritual growth and travel. I highly recommend this book and the audiobook.
