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.
- 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.

My favorite so far Review by Becky K.
I have about 5 of Jack Kornfield,s CD sets so far. He is so soothing and positive. This is my favorite so far. I listen to them at night to unwind from my day as a floor nurse on a busy unit in a large city hospital. He helps me on so many levels. My patients have a better calmer nurse thanks to Jack.

Review for After the Ecstasy, the Laundry Review by Ronald K
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. (Posted on October 13, 2014)

Review for After the Ecstasy, the Laundry Review by Kate
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. (Posted on November 28, 2012)
Review for After the Ecstasy, the Laundry Review by Wendy W
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. (Posted on October 6, 2012)

Review for After the Ecstasy, the Laundry Review by Mary M
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! (Posted on September 20, 2012)

I listen to the audio book when driving into work each morning. It really prepares me for a busy day, and reminds me to pay attention! Thank you, Jack Kornfield, I am so happy that a friend recommended your work. (Posted on July 26, 2012)
