Always puts me to sleep, but try to pay attention

Very Good! Easy to listen to, practical advice for transforming your life into a more free and happy life. This audio version is missing some parts from the real book which is a bummer.

This is NOT the book

Yes, that's the book title, and yes, that's the cover of the real book. However, this is not an audio version of the book. Very disappointing...

The temple bell's ringing fades

The temple bell's ringing fades, but the flowers continue to carry their sound... to be enjoyed as echoes of our true nature... again and again

The author's voice was a little strange to me but other than that it was really good.

The book was way better!

I would've given the book 5 stars. Somehow, it just didn't translate well into an audio book.

Enlightening guide to spiritual life

Jack draws upon his Buddhist learnings to give a practical way of discovering your own spiritual understanding while living a modern life.



Many books about spiritual development are somehow detached from bringing the spiritual ideals that you discover into your everyday life. This book helps the reader use meditation as a tool for self discovery and development that extends to our entire lives and not restricted to the moments of insight that we all have from time to time.



A really interesting book and Jack's calm and clear narration really help with digesting the ideas he puts forward.



This is full of fascinating insights.

Not his best.

I've listened to a few of Jack Kornfield's books & have to say I found this a little boring. Maybe I've listened to too many? I don't know. Cannot fault Jack's soothing narration as always but for some reason this one just didn't grab me.
