Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1997

The author says that awareness through meditation can teach us what is true, even when the truth is painful or disorienting. Usually we fight with uncomfortable emotion or act it out in habitual ways; we want things on our own terms and don’t want to think about how they affect others. Feelings like craving, resentment, aggression and depression are too much to bear. But by embracing these realities, we can heal and open up to the fundamental joy that is our birthright. We can connect with our noble heart, which "is not affected by all our kicking and screaming." With gentleness and a broad grasp of the human spirit, the author makes this material very inviting, like therapy with a wise, existential therapist.
