Bringing Home the Dharma: Awakening Right Where You Are By Jack Kornfield, Daniel J. Siegel, M.D. (Foreword by) Cover Image


We don’t have to look to the East for the secrets of awakening—the wisdom and peace we seek is available right here, in our ordinary daily lives
If you want to find inner peace and wisdom, you don’t need to move to an ashram or monastery. Your life, just as it is, is the perfect place to be. Here Jack Kornfield, one of America’s most respected Buddhist teachers, shares this and other key lessons gleaned from more than forty years of committed study and practice. Topics include:

   • How to cultivate loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity
   • Conscious parenting
   • Spirituality and sexuality
   • The way of forgiveness
   • Committing ourselves to healing the suffering in the world

Bringing Home the Dharma includes simple meditation practices for awakening our buddha nature—our wise and understanding heart—amid the ups and downs of our ordinary daily lives.
