“Hatred never ceases by hatred, but by love alone is healed. This is the ancient and eternal law.”
– Jack Kornfield
Jack Kornfield (@JackKornfield) trained as a Buddhist monk in the monasteries of Thailand, India, and Burma, shortly thereafter becoming one of the key teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness practice to the West. He has taught meditation internationally since 1974.
Jack has had a profound and direct impact on my life, and I’m thrilled to finally have him on the podcast to share our history, his incredible stories, and practical tactics and techniques that you can use.
Jack co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts, with fellow meditation teachers Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein and the Spirit Rock Center in Woodacre, California. He holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and is a father, husband, and activist.
Jack’s books have been translated into 20 languages and sold more than a million copies, including The Wise Heart, A Lamp in the Darkness, A Path with Heart, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry (one of my favorite book titles of all time), and his most recent, No Time Like the Present: Finding Freedom, Love, and Joy Right Where You Are.
A PATH WITH HEART
The Astral Institute recommends A Path with Heart by Jack Kornfield as the best place to start on a road of discovery of Kornfield most profound thoughts on the spiritual path. Perhaps the most important book yet written on meditation, the process of inner transformation, and the integration of spiritual practice into our Western way of life, A Path With Heart brings alive the possibilities of inner peace, wholeness and the achievement of happiness.
Interview with Tim Ferriss
Recently Jack med up for a podcast with the serial entrepreneur Tim Ferriss, during a very insight interview he discussed his first astral projection, or out of body experience, while on a meditation retreat. Please find a link below to the full interview. Enjoy
