A Heart Full of Peace

Following in the footsteps of two millennia of Buddhist practitioners, author-teacher Joseph Goldstein leads Forest Refuge programs, lengthy retreats in which seekers develop "the practice of awakening." A Heart Full of Peace distills those teachings into breezy, entertaining lessons on peacefulness and positivity that all readers can learn from and enjoy. Like the songlines that bring sacred aboriginal paths to life, Goldstein's evocative words bring the concept of metta, or loving kindness, to life for Western readers. Grounded in the basic trainings of body, speech, and mind, this mini-retreat is illuminated by the kind of humor and personal insights that inspire even seasoned travelers, while pithy practice guidelines keep the journey on track.
