From the Publisher: Perhaps the most important book yet written on meditation, the process
of inner transformation, and the integration of spiritual practice into
our American way of life, A Path with Heart brings alive one by
one the challenges of spiritual living in the modern world. Written by a
teacher, psychologist, and meditation master of international renown,
this warm, inspiring, and expert book touches on a wide range of
essential issues including many rarely addressed in spiritual books.
From compassion, addiction, and psychological and emotional healing, to
dealing with problems involving relationships and sexuality, to the
creation of a Zen-like simplicity and balance in all facets of life, it
speaks to the concerns of many modern spiritual seekers, both those
beginning on the path and those with years of experience.
A Path with Heart is filled with practical techniques, guided
meditations, stories, koans, and other gems of wisdom that can help ease
your journey through the world. The author's own profound — and
sometimes humorous — experiences and gentle assistance will skillfully
guide you through the obstacles and trials of spiritual and contemporary
life to bring clarity of perception and a sense of the sacred into your
everyday experience. Reading this book will touch your heart and remind
you of the promises inherent in meditation and in a life of the spirit:
the blossoming of inner peace, wholeness, and understanding, and the
achievement of a happiness that is not dependent on external conditions.
A Path with Heart shows us how we can bring our spirituality to
flower every day of our lives. It is a wise and gentle guidebook for an
odyssey into the soul that enables us to achieve a deeper, more
satisfying life in the world.
