Teachings from the Heart
As the world draws closer together, it is time to look within, to understand the workings of our minds and to use this knowledge to enrich not only our own lives, but the lives of future generations.
With warmth and wisdom, Teachings from the Heart clearly presents thoughts on mind and meditation, a new way of working, human freedom, and the play of knowledge in time and space. Thirty three essays drawn from articles, interviews, and introductions spanning thirty years of work in the West explore ways of knowing that transform limiting patterns and activate our finest qualities. Through meditative inquiry and understanding, we can bring forth the beauty and joy inherent in mind and shape our ordinary round of existence into a realm illuminated by love and compassion.
