I discovered Jack Kornfield while listening to the Duncan Trussell podcast, and after listening to the same podcast over 5 times, I realized I should give one of Jacks books a try. He is an excellent writer on Buddhist teachings, and I'm very thankful for the things he has opened my eyes, and mind to. The Wise Heart is a fairly long book with many things to offer. I just finished my first listen, and I can promise you it won't be my last!
