The Wise Heart

The Wise Heart:

A Guide to the Universal Teachings of Buddhist Psychology

By Jack Kornfield

Bantam Dell (April 29, 2008)


Jack Kornfield is one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist practice in the west.  Graduation from Dartmouth in 1967, Kornfield has been institutional in bringing Buddhist psychology into western day by day mainstream living.  An understanding of both mindsets that few can express as he can.  He is able to make self-adaptation understandable, practical and helpful. 


Wise Heart, is too much of a book to talk about in a few words.  The major focal points are:  Addressing who you really are; application of the good Psy-health practice of mindfulness; the understanding of self and of others; finding personal freedom and personal practice.


Just released, this is a wonderful book for the present.  I have been living with Wise Heart for 2 months now, and have enjoyed it.  Reading Wise Heart has increased my understanding of how to incorporate Eastern Psychology into modern life.

Fans of Jack Kornfield’s A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, The Laundry will not be disappointed as this story is continued.
