Product Details

Praise

“Our emotional life can be a prison of suffering or a portal to profound heart-wisdom. In this brilliant synthesis of Tibetan Buddhist teachings and Western psychology, Rob Preece offers a rich guide for healing and spiritual awakening.”—Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

“On the path to greater freedom and wisdom, psychotherapy typically encourages us to get to know our feelings, even to follow them into stories of meaning and action.  Buddhism, on the other hand, tends to encourage us to temper or ignore our feelings as a means to liberation from suffering. Rob Preece guides us in a tremendously useful and practical dialogue between these two disciplines.”—Polly Young-Eisendrath, PhD, author of The Resilient Spirit and The Present Heart: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Discovery

“This book shows us very clearly how feelings can be a path to enlightenment and how wounds can turn into resources. I was especially touched by the way Rob writes directly to us as a wise, kindly, and compassionate teacher-friend.”—David Richo, PhD, author of How to Be an Adult in Relationships and The Five Things We Cannot Change
