What the community says about A Path with Heart
- "With the use of everyday metaphors and easily understood stories, A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life written by Jack Kornfield is an extremely helpful tool to further immerse yourself into the spiritual world of Buddhism. This one is extremely helpful and will guide some of the lost to where they would like to spiritually be."
- "Everyone deals with addiction or deals with having addicts in their life differently. My best friend recently divorced her alcoholic husband, and was looking for ways to find balance and understanding in her life. She said this book helped her tremendously. But it's not specifically for helping with addiction/understanding addiction. So I would use it as a supplement, not a primary guide.""A Path with Heart had good reviews on Amazon, so I thought I would give it a try. Not only am I still drinking, but I do not feel in touch with my spiritual side at all. The metaphors seemed forced and insincere, and the author's sense of humor was off putting. This was a waste of time."
- "There are a plethora of meditation books out there, but A Path With Heart takes an interesting approach to the genre. Rather than being a "how-to" book, A Path With Heart offers humorous way of combining the norms of American society with the teachings of Buddha. Though it may not be the best for someone who is brand new to meditation, it is a well-reviewed book on meditation that will help those looking for spiritual guidance and entertainment."
