Perhaps the most important book yet written on meditation, the process of inner transformation, and the integration of spiritual practice into our American way of life, A Path with Heart brings alive one by one the challenges of spiritual living in the modern world. Written by a teacher, psychologist, and meditation master of international renown, this warm, inspiring, and expert book touches on a wide range of essential issues including many rarely addressed in spiritual books. From compassion, addiction, and psychological and emotional healing, to dealing with problems involving relationships and sexuality, to the creation of a Zen-like simplicity and balance in all facets of life, it speaks to the concerns of many modern spiritual seekers, both those beginning on the path and those with years of experience. - from the publisher

Glossary
  AikiBib | May 31, 2022 |
A guide to reconciling Buddhist spirituality with the American way of life addresses the challenges of spiritual living in the modern world and offers guidance for bringing a sense of the sacred to everyday experience.
  PSZC | Jan 2, 2020 |
Unusual book that is open to Hinduism from the Buddhist point of view. Talks candidly about the harmful things that can happen to anyone seeking a spiritual path with a guide who is unscrupulous. Kornfield speaks about many naivete traits that doom a person to be destroyed by their manipulative "teacher". Not so valuable about the spiritual depths that one can enter and learn from as distinct from Catholicism's various mystical traditions. This book focuses more on what we Catholics call meditation techniques for the lower levels of prayer. Mystical knowledge of God is not the goal for Buddhism nor this book. For Catholicism, this is the whole direction of spiritual effort and energy. This book and the author focus on detaching from emotional states that can mar decisions and life directions. Understanding these tendencies that are individual to each of us is something valuable [in this book], including to all interested Roman Catholics. ( )

Even the most exalted states and the most exceptional spiritual accomplishments are unimportant if we cannot be happy in the most basic and ordinary ways, if we cannot touch one another and the life we have been given with our hearts.
