Publisher's Summary

The gift of spiritual awakening - from one heart to another.
What is transmitted from a spiritual teacher to a student? The possibilities of love and freedom, of living in a joyful heart. Extraordinary spiritual teachers empower us, pointing us towards our own awakening. In their presence, we can feel the qualities of enlightenment rather than just hearing about them, and we are inspired to see in a new way.
With Transmission, author and teacher Jack Kornfield shares eight sessions of in-depth teachings illuminating the student-teacher relationship. Through a treasure trove of personal stories about the Dalai Lama, Chögyam Trungpa, Dipa Ma, Ajahn Chah, and other masters, we see how teachers embody the many facets of the jewel of enlightened consciousness - including humor, discipline, humility, joyousness, uncanny perspicacity, and unfathomable compassion - and how we, too, can fully awaken these qualities in ourselves.
Exploring such topics as devotion, the tender heart of sadness, meditation, and patience, Jack reveals the power of opening one's heart to a true spiritual teacher as well as the potential pitfalls and challenges of the teacher-student relationship. With warmth, humor, and practical advice-including what to do if there are no spiritual teachers near your home, Transmission opens possibilities for anyone to deepen, practice, and awaken.

It Works

Jack Kornfield is a great teacher. I have been working in the Middle East for a number of years now and am not able to go on retreats or attend classes. Listening to Jack Kornfields lessons is the next best thing.

Transmission is the latest series of lessons I have acquired. The lessons are for people who have a fair working knowledge of Budhist meditation practice or meditation practice in general.

The training and practice have changed the way I view the world around me and have changed the view I held of my place in it. There is a deep feeling of contentment now that I have not experienced before.

I thoroughly recommend these teachings.
