Publisher's Summary

Teachings to Cultivate the Practice of Faith

We tend to think of faith as a commodity you either have or you don't. But in many of the world's wisdom traditions, faith isn't something you possess; it's something you do. "Faith is a willingness to take the next step, to see the unknown as an adventure, to launch a journey," teaches Sharon Salzberg. Now this beloved meditation teacher and author shares her unique understanding of faith, distinguishing it from belief and dogma, to help you cultivate this profound force in your life.

In this four-hour program, Salzberg dispels the negative concepts that label faith as either "blind" or "ignorant" and reveals something much deeper: an intelligence and common sense rooted in your deepest experience. With discerning wisdom, she invites you to explore:

  • The crucial first step in the faith journey: embracing impermanence - the ever-changing nature of the world
  • The surprising relationship between doubt and faith
  • How to move forward when you feel lost in the mire of resignation and despair
  • Faith as a refuge for even our hardest times
  • The ingredients of true faith: love and respect for ourselves and others

Faith is the ability to offer your heart to the truth of what is happening, the present expression of possibility, and the conduit connecting you to a bigger reality. With Faith, you gain a powerful tool for cultivating the peace of mind and ease to carry you through any situation.

on faith

I am captivated by the Buddhist view on faith. It is respectful and accessible in a way that no religion is and I appreciate that Sharon Salzberg has an amazing understanding of the path to faith and tells a poweful story .

Reassuring

When we accomplish faith in our loving nature, we won't need of vanishing words of approval from others to be complete.

Great content; Difficult to listen to narration

Sharon Salzberg speaks in a very monotone voice -- which works very well for her guided meditations but made listening to this book very tedious and, ultimately, made it listenable for me. The content of the book is wonderful, inspiring, and thought-provoking, but I would definitely recommend the actual book over the audio book.
