- A life of awakened love and compassion in action
- The mystery of consciousness and the undying spirit

- "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 Review by Shannon C
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! (Posted on May 10, 2014)
Review for The Wise Heart Review by Dennis D
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. (Posted on December 29, 2013)
Review for The Wise Heart Review by Orna J
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. (Posted on November 27, 2013)

Yes, it is a beautiful and rewarding.
and Jack Kornfield's voice is smooth and clear.
His voice is more conversationa in Buddha Nature which I found more pleasing. (Posted on May 23, 2013)

The Wise heart it a very excellent audio book Jack Kornfield makes very simple and clear in the meanings of Consciousness, and the Self- No Self.
I continuously listen to this all the time.

Review for The Wise Heart Review by Rita
A Wise Heart is a very beautiful and comprehensive guide towards a gentle, wise, and compassionate understanding of the human experience
we all share. Having read the book, I purchased
this CD set so that I can review sections most meaningful to me personally while walking and engaged in other daily activities. (Posted on March 30, 2013)
Review for The Wise Heart Review by Angus C
This beautiful work is a wonderful introduction to a wonderful teacher. Quite apart from the wisdom
Dr K presents, his mellifluous tones and gentleness
are also a powerful adjunct to the practices of self hypnosis. (Posted on September 7, 2012)
