From compassion, addiction, and psychological and emotional healing, to dealing with problems involving relationships and sexuality, to the creation of Zen-like simplicity and balance in all facets of life, in ' A path with heart' Kornfield introduces to the concerns of many modern spiritual seekers, both those beginning on the path and those with years of experience. He guides self-searchers to a simplicity of perception that brings alive spiritual practice, peace, and truth in their daily lives.

Recensione dell'utente  - gratefulyoga - LibraryThing

Another great introduction to Buddhism. Kornfield presents the teachings in a direct manner with lots of illustrative stories and metaphors. This is much more than meditation instruction. He shows how we can live with more mindfulness and compassion in all parts of our life. Leggi recensione completa
