The lessons taught by ancient Chinese philosophers surprisingly still apply, and they challenge our fundamental assumptions about how to lead a fulfilled, happy, and successful life. Self-discovery, it turns out, comes through looking outward, not inward. Power comes from holding back. Good relationships come from small gestures. Spontaneity comes from practice. And excellence comes from what you choose to do, not your "natural" abilities.

This is an excellent book which I would highly recommend. The narrators voice was at a very difficult to listen to timbre which was very unfortunate..

I'd still recommend this audiobook!

Some good ideas here, but a lot of fear-based views as well. Appreciated hearing a different view on parenting even if I generally disagree.

Do you feel at home right now? Or do you sense a hovering anxiety or uncertainty, an underlying unease that makes you feel just a bit uncomfortable, a bit distracted and disconnected from those around you? In The Road Home, Ethan Nichtern, a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition, investigates the journey each of us takes to find where we belong.

Excellent perspective on Buddhist and Shambhala teachings and how they relate to ourselves, our relationships, and society. Great teachings on meditation in action.
