Publisher's Summary

Strengthening, calming, and stabilizing the mind is the essential first step in accomplishing nearly any goal. Growing up American with a Tibetan twist, Sakyong Mipham talks to Westerners as no one can: in idiomatic English with stories and wisdom from American culture and the great Buddhist teachers.

Turning the Mind Into an Ally makes it possible for anyone to achieve peace and clarity in their lives.

A powerful work now in audio format

I first was given this book about six years ago. Got a quarter of the way through and then it sat. The last two years I’ve been listening to a series of for lack of a better term transcendent self help books as I do my daily runs. This is proving to be a powerful practice for me. I just completed my first listen through of Turning the mind Into an Ally. I will listen to it again to let the words and thoughts sink further in. The five-year weight has been well worth it to get this in audio format. Thank you.
