Annotation

'An invitation to a sane life' Jack Kornfield

Do you feel at home? Feeling truly at home, he believes, comes not from our physical location but the ability to belong in the present moment, without worrying about yesterday's regrets or tomorrow's to-do list.

Publisher Description

'An invitation to a sane life' Jack Kornfield

Do you feel at home? Are you comfortable in your own skin? Do you have a sense of belonging?

In this book, senior Buddhist teacher Ethan Nichtern addresses these questions and guides us on the path we all take to find out who we really are and where we really belong. Feeling truly at home, he believes, comes not from our physical location but the ability to belong in the present moment, without worrying about yesterday's regrets or tomorrow's to-do list. Nichtern provides the tools needed to reach this awakening.

Once we feel relaxed and comfortable in our own skin, our lives improve. We become less anxious, uncertain and stressed about the future; we become more able to listen, to be compassionate and engage in meaningful relationships and activities. We can all achieve this, if only we can feel at home with ourselves and others. This book is not about navel-gazing or escapism, instead it is a map to use in everyday life - one that ultimately leads you home.
