This audiobook is a series of lectures by Jack Kornfeld which is clear and unfuddled in delivery, and very witty too, which adds to its listenability. I was pleased, too, that Jack's soft American accent works well here, and he avoids 'new age' sentimentality. In looking at how the mind perceives the world, we explore from a Buddhist perspective how our psychological chains can be unshackled through mindfulness and the shedding of illusion. Very informative and entertaining.

Jack Kornfield's soothing and insightful words helped me make sense of aspects of Buddhism that I have hitherto found difficult to grasp. He peppers his talks with humour, compassion and acceptance, making them entertaining as well as informative. Very happy with this purchase!

I will admit I have found Jack Kornfield a little less than interesting in the past but this audiobook (which is really a multi-day seminar) was truly interesting and helps me find peace on stressfull days. Each segment is short enough to make a really great point and then you can stop and ponder the segment before going to the next segment. Great delivery and information. Well worth the full price.

Kornfield's voice is very soothing & enjoyable, he also has many humorous moments that make the experience of the book fun as well as enlightening. While I am not a Buddhist this book is one of the best books I've ever listened to. Absolutely awesome psychology that will teach you how to maintain a happy state this is independent of & despite what is going on in your physical life, as well as great tools for treating others the way you want to be treated. This stuff should be taught secularly in elementary through high school, the world would be a better place if it were. These are teachings for anyone regardless of religion.
