An Invitation to Explore the Deeper Dimensions of the Spiritual Journey

It might happen suddenly, like a flash of lightning. Or gradually, like raindrops filling a jar. Our universal and awakened nature, the Buddha taught, can emerge in calm or in crisis. And then, as our path deepens, we must learn to embody our vision as we navigate the unexpected turns of the mystery.

When we asked Jack Kornfield for the most helpful advanced teachings from his audio archives, he chose these eight essential sessions. With Awakening Is Real, here are just a few of the dimensions of the spiritual journey that you will explore in depth:

  • The archetypal stages of awakening common to all transformative paths, and how to overcome its greatest challenges and obstacles
  • How the universal virtues of the warrior—such as courage, sacrifice, strength, and impeccability—are as valuable for freeing ourselves as kindness and compassion
  • Profound insights hidden within well-known teaching stories including The Mahaparanirvana (the Buddha’s last sermon) and The Journey of Nachiketa
  • “The Elephant’s Footprint”—Why the Buddha considered mindfulness of our own mortality and death to be the core practice that accelerates and deepens all others

Into the Quiet Forest of Presence, Compassion, and Interconnectedness

These sessions, while taught and recorded among advanced students, are anything but academic. Instead, you’ll find here the playful, candid, and direct sharing of wisdom usually heard only by those fully committed to their life’s evolution—an opportunity to discover within yourself what Jack Kornfield’s own teacher Ajahn Chah called “the still, clear forest pool that sees the nature of all things.”

SESSIONS INCLUDE:

  • The Sacred Journey
  • The Way of the Warrior
  • Initiation
  • The Journey of Nachiketa
  • How Shall We Live?
  • Difficulties as Part of the Path
  • Living with a Mindfulness of Death
  • Letting Go: Buddha’s Last Sermon

Never disappointed by the works of Jack Kornfield and this was no exception. His easy to understand narratives together with his warm heart make for very enjoyable and informative listening.

Excellent set of teachings. Clear, concise and timeless wisdom beautifully presented with great humour and many lovely stories. Jack has such a beautiful spirit that really moves one effortlessly to recognise feelings of loving kindness that reside with us all.

Highly recommended!

Love this program! Jack Kornfield is at his best with his stories and teachings. I'm always disappointed when the recordings end.

Excellent and with many illustrations of each experiential part of the teaching. I highly recommend it . A very real truth sharing time giving perspective but relaxing in the way it effects your life. An open field in which to be.

This series is amazing, a gift from a dear friend. Jack Kornfield is, for me, the perfect teacher. His grace and lightness and wisdom shine so brightly and so true. He embodies what he teaches in a way that invites and encourages. His device of using stories to illustrate and illuminate the teachings is so smart and so powerful. I love these cd's. As soon as I finished listening, I started again.

I always love Jack Kornfield. I've been following him for years--close to 20 years. However, this may be the problem with this package. Many of the talks were repeats. I'm looking for more material. I've heard many of the jokes before too. Otherwise, for someone new to Jack Kornfield--they might be more useful.

This is truly one of the best I've listened to - I've only just discovered Jack Kornfield but he is now at the top of my list along with John Kabat-Zinn....each day a little listening just helps keep me more aware. This is one I will listen to over and over again.

the talks are wonderful.. anything that Jack Kornfield does is a joy to listen to. I do have a technical problem though. I downloaded this to my computer and then my ipod.. and it keeps crashing my ipod. I'll start to listen to it and it freezes up. I've checked and it's not a problem with the ipod and it never happens with anything else I play on it. Possibly there's something corrupt in your download to me??? Have you had reports of these kinds of problems before? Thanks
