Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Throughout our lives we long to love ourselves more deeply and find a greater sense of connection with others. Our fear of intimacy-both with others and with ourselves-creates feelings of pain and longing. But these feelings can also awaken in us the desire for freedom and the willingness to take up the spiritual path.

In this inspiring book, longtime meditation practitioner and teacher Sharon Salzberg shows how the Buddhist path can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each one of us, drawing on Buddhist teachings, wisdom from various traditions, her personal experiences, and guided meditation exercises. With these tools, she teaches how the practice of lovingkindness can illuminate a path to cultivating love, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity-the four "heavenly abodes" of traditional Buddhism.
Review Quote*"Sharon Salzberg's book illuminates the heart of lovingkindness like a lamp in the darkness, like the clearing of fog, like a sunrise on a beautiful morning-it brings light so that all those with eyes may see."-Jack Kornfield, author of After the Ecstasy, the Laundry
 
"Reading Salzberg's book produces the sense of having been gifted abundantly."-Sylvia Boorstein
