Hard times come to everyone. When they come, we can all use help. Fortunately there are skillful ways to illuminate our path and strengthen our heart's courage, clarity, dignity and compassion. To help us navigate our own difficult time, trusted meditation teacher Jack Kornfield, known for his gift of transmitting meditation with his warmth, wisdom and precision, offers Guided Mediations for Difficult Times. This two-session program provides more than a half dozen guided meditations-some that Jack has never recorded before-including: Taking the Buddha's Form, The Wisdom of an Aching Heart, The Great Healing Temple, and more.

I can't say enough about how much I appreciate listening and relistening to this recording. Jack Kornfield uses humor, insight, and great compassion to put words to whatever disaster has occurred in your life. He then gently guides the listener through a series of mediations that help to inspire, strengthen and provide perspective. He says that it isn't a self help book, but help it does. The author provides a new way of viewing the world and teaches a set of coping skills that really make a difference. The narration is centered, evenly paced and calming. The content is humane and kind. Highly recommended listening.
This is exactly what we need for those times when our heart is breaking; or when our life is crumbling around us. His gentle voice is like balm to help us get through the painful times when those closest to us betray and deeply hurt us. He is the light when it seems as if the world is just not fair.

Great meditations, not really great for the car driving experience, better for home and stillness, but still his words are so inspiring.
I will return to this frequently to continue and deepen my life of peace and compassion with the challenges I face. Now off to "do the laundry" (part of the title of another of Jack Kornfield's books.
My "go to" for grounding. Jack Kornfield is an expert in his field and is truly a favorite in my house!
Haven't read the print version
Kornfield is very wise and calm, with an unsusally soothing voice.
Yes, they are all good.
These are big and timeless ideas presented in a way that we in the Western, modern world can grasp and use in our difficult times.
