A Compassionate guide

Any additional comments?

I can't say enough about how much I appreciate listening and relistening to this recording. Jack Kornfield uses humor, insight, and great compassion to put words to whatever disaster has occurred in your life. He then gently guides the listener through a series of mediations that help to inspire, strengthen and provide perspective. He says that it isn't a self help book, but help it does. The author provides a new way of viewing the world and teaches a set of coping skills that really make a difference. The narration is centered, evenly paced and calming. The content is humane and kind. Highly recommended listening.

Masterfully Done!

Any additional comments?

This is exactly what we need for those times when our heart is breaking; or when our life is crumbling around us. His gentle voice is like balm to help us get through the painful times when those closest to us betray and deeply hurt us. He is the light when it seems as if the world is just not fair.
