"In a stroke of genius, Ajahn Brham turns mindfulness into kindfulness, a practice that opens our hearts to others as well as to ourselves. The kindfulness techniques in this book are easy to incorporate into our everyday lives because Ajahn Brahm illustrates them with stories that all of us can relate to."--Toni Bernhard, author of How to Be Sick
