Review quote

"I love this gentle, brilliant, and incisive book. I read it slowly, with amazement at its richness and wisdom, relief at feeling so understood, pleasure in Kornfield's beautiful writing and sweet humor, and gratitude that such understanding has been expressed in the written word. This Wise Heart changed me." --Anne Lamott, author of "Traveling Mercies" and "Grace (Eventually) ""What an extraordinary mind is Jack Kornfield's. Curious by nature and brightly shining from birth, tempered by suffering, both personal and worldly, it guides us, in this profound and useful book, on a journey of consciousness unfamiliar to most of us born in the West. The Wise Heart is one of those books, more than a book, more like a companion, that encourages our bravery to meet whatever confronts us in life with a caring and tranquil heart. It is a transformative gift from one of the great spiritual teachers of our time."--Alice Walker, author of "The Color Purple" " ""The Wise Heart is Jack Kornfield at his most wonderful and illuminating. He brings to life a way to understand and cultivate mindfulness, compassion, lovingkindness and true wisdom that penetrates to the core of what liberation is all about."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of "Coming to Our Senses" and "Arriving at Your Own Door ""The Wise Heart offers more than remedies--it points the way to a life of flourishing."--Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence" ""This masterpiece of a dedicated life's work unveils the principles of an ancient 'science of mind' that are woven seamlessly into a wondrous map of the human heart--one that is astonishingly consistent with the discoveries of modern neuroscience."--Daniel Siegel, M.D., author of "The Developing Mind" and "The Mindful Brain ""Warm, funny, moving, and tremendously inspiring, The Wise Heart brings Buddhist psychology to life. Reading it is, in itself, a transformational experience." --Mark Epstein, M.D., authore
