In this landmark work, internationally beloved teacher of meditation and "one of the great spiritual teachers of our time" (Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple ) Jack Kornfield reveals that you can be instantly happy with the keys to inner freedom.

Through his signature warmhearted, poignant, often funny stories, with their a-ha moments and O. Henry-like outcomes, Jack Kornfield shows how we can free ourselves, wherever we are and whatever our circumstances. Renowned for his mindfulness practices and meditations, Jack provides keys for opening gateways to immediate shifts in perspective and clarity of vision, allowing us to "grapple with difficult emotions" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review) and know how to change course, take action, or--when we shouldn't act--just relax and trust.

Each chapter presents a path to a different kind of freedom--freedom from fear, freedom to start over, to love, to be yourself, and to be happy--and guides you into an active process that engages your mind and heart, awakens your spirit, and brings real joy, over and over again. Drawing from his own life as a son, brother, father, and partner, and on his forty years of face-to-face teaching of thousands of people across the country, Jack presents "a consomm#65533; of goodness, heart, laughter, tears, and breath, nourishing and delicious" (Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird ). His keys to life will help us find hope, clarity, relief from past disappointments and guilt, and the courage to go forward.

If you are looking for timely, consoling words to get you through moments of uncertainty and fear, then you will find none more gentle than those from Jack Kornfield. He is an American, former Buddhist monk; now teacher, that makes Eastern text very relatable for Western ears. What is fantastic about this book, aside from his adept writing, are the practices that Kornfield has placed within each section. This is something I have not oft come across and I feel in valuable for laypeople.
