DESCRIPTION

"Teaching by example, Natalie Goldberg has written a brave and turbulent memoir that is by turns luminous and gritty. A riveting read."—Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way

"Bravo to Natalie. She shows us how to open the heart, and face into betrayal with courage instead of running from it. She shows us how to transform fear and blame into wisdom and compassion." —Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart

"The Great Failure is a boundless embrace, leaving nothing out. I wanted to learn the truth, to become whole. If I could touch the dark nature in someone else, I could know it in myself."

So begins Natalie Goldberg in this candid exploration of her life. Here, Goldberg makes sense of primary relationships between father and daughter, teacher and student, and exemplifies the accomplishment available when creating daily writing practices—the popular technique she launched in her bestselling Writing Down the Bones.

Natalie Goldberg has inspired millions to write in order to develop an intimate relationship with their minds, and a greater understanding of the world in which they live. Now, The Great Failure touches our hearts, and shows us the wellspring of wisdom available when we bravely confront the truths about ourselves, and the events of our lives.

Audiobook read by the author. Program concludes with an exclusive Sounds True interview.
