I enjoyed listening to John and getting to know him. I have always believed that people who pass can communicate with some. It is enjoyable to hear about his experiences.
This short book was a nice synopsis of larger books I have read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is difficult to follow along with the meditation exersizes while driving. Otherwise it was a very relaxing and educational book. The reader's voice is ideal for this type of literature.
I found this annoying, it was partly Jack Kornfield's cloying voice, partly my feeling that he was talking down to me. The Dalai Lama's books are infinitely better.
Good overview. Doesn't include conversations by Dalai Lama.
A decent primer and quick listen - not a blockbuster, but if you want an overview of the vocabulary and concepts, this book meets the need!
The thing they forgot to mention in the books' description is that it is basically a recording of a Q&A session with a Tibetan monk and a lot of it is in Tibetan . . . the master speaks in Tibetan and the student translates . . . or does he translate? Sometimes the Tibetan answer is very short and the translation is very long, it seems the answer is perhaps guided by the master but developed for the audience by the student. Oh yes, some answers reference a seminar given the day before this recording was taken . . .
"Jack Kornfield, the bestselling author of several books, including A Path with Heart and Buddha's Little Instruction Book, is a founder of the Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
Christina Feldman is the author of Woman Awake and, like Kornfield, is an internationally recognized Buddhist teacher who leads spiritual retreats around the world."
