COURAGE AND TENDERNESS
STORIES FOR AN AWAKENED HEART
Often, true accounts can inspire and move us more directly than an abstract teaching alone. Here, Jack Kornfield tells a series of moving real-world stories to awaken our own heart's transformation:
- A Tibetan cancer patient's love for the fragrant spring blossoms of his childhood… and what happens when the neighborhood florists catch wind of it.
- A beloved meditation master meets the man being paid to slander him, and the extraordinary story that unfolds.
- A spiritual teacher embarrasses herself, then learns from her own children the art of laughter and not taking one's self so seriously.
