DESCRIPTION

You have within you an unlimited capacity for extraordinary love, for joy, for communion with life, and for unshakable freedom—and here is how to awaken it.

On The Wise Heart, celebrated author and psychologist Jack Kornfield offers an accessible, comprehensive, and illuminating guide to the universal teachings of Buddhist psychology. He shows you how to use powerful Buddhist insights and practices to go beyond the trap of "self-improvement"—and find in your own life the path to unconditional fulfillment and happiness discovered by the Buddha.

In the moving style of Kornfield's previous bestsellers, The Wise Heart invites you to discover:

  • A life of awakened love and compassion in action
  • The mystery of consciousness and the undying spirit
  • Buddhist personality types and the methods for transcending the illusion of self
  • "Behaviorism with heart"—Buddhist cognitive training
  • Interdependence and why it is essential to your personal well-being
  • How Western and Buddhist psychology complement each other

At the heart of Buddhist psychology lies a vision of radiant human dignity, the secret beauty we all share: our Buddha nature. "Seeing with the eyes of love," explains Jack Kornfield, "reveals this beauty everywhere around us." Join this trusted voice to experience the transformational power of Buddhism's perennial strategies for enlightened living.

Review for The Wise Heart

Great book, I owned it on paperback but had a long drive I was taking and wanted it in audio form. Thank you so much for providing it, it was a wonderful listen on my drive!

Review for The Wise Heart

The content of Jack Kornfield's "Wise Heart" is broad, deep, and very well organized -- I'd give the content a "5 star" rating. I have the book already, and for my needs I feel it is one of his best. He enumerates Buddhist principles, and organizes each chapter around those. As is typical Kornfield, he offers an array of stories, quotations, personal disclosures, and so on from a variety of sources. In particular, I am interested in how those principles may play out iin psychotherapy, and found a number of examples there. Even though I have the book, I wanted to be able to listen to the chapters multiple times -- I learn best that way. Unfortunately, the way the audio files are composed is quite disappointing. Several of the individual files contain more than one chapter, so when I want to listen to some particular chapter, I cannot go directly to it. I would much prefer a separate audio file for each chapter. Because of that, I've lowered the overall rating.

Review for The Wise Heart

I love this book. It is both clear and full of very useful insights that are easy to incorporate. I took lots of notes and listened to several sections more than once. It is my favorite book by Jack Kornfield.
