A Jewel of a book!

I love listening to Jack Kornfield and this collection of dharma talks. This isn't a book that I start and power through quickly but one I think needs to be taken in small sittings over time. There is a ton of great information with thought provoking and life changing concepts presented here. However, time needs to be taken to process these ideas and ponder the deeper meaning. I recommend this recording to anyone interested in shifting their point of view and seeing things in a different light. I also find that each time I listen I hear something I had not noticed before. Definitely a book I return to frequently.

If you are at a point in your life where you are searching because nothing seems to make sense anymore, I would highly recommend this audiobook. It is my first listen to Jack Kornfield and I will go back for more. Definitely a life changer for me. I feel like I am finally on the right path.
