Beschreibung des Verlags
A Path with Heart has been acclaimed as the most significant book yet about American Buddhism, a definitive guide to the practice of traditional mindfulness in America today. On this audio edition, Kornfield teaches the key principles of Buddhism's cherished
vipassana (insight) tradition and puts them into direct service, with the unique needs of the contemporary seeker in mind.
Insightful, clear and helpful
Buddhism can be difficult to understand and even more difficult to practice. The quality of this audio book is to be both a guide to the intellectual understanding of Buddhism by someone who, like most uf us, grew up in the Western world and can put these ancient concepts into modern words and examples. But it is also a practical guide to Buddhist meditation techniques which allows us understand the impact of these concepts on our daily lifes.
I would caution the reader who is looking for guided meditations per se. There are guided meditations in this book, but they are short and not easily to navigate to for repetetive practice. However the meditations are perfectly capable to be used as descriptions on how to meditate on your own. Additionally, the book offers guideline on how to identify a good meditation teacher.
So if you are looking for a guide book that describes the intellectual and practical aspects of Buddhism, this book is excellent.
