In undertaking a spiritual life, we must make certain that our path is connected with our heart, according to author and Buddhist monk Jack Kornfield. Since 1974 (long before it gained popularity in the 1990s), Kornfield has been teaching westerners how to integrate Eastern teaching into their daily lives. Through generous storytelling and unmitigated warmth, Kornfield offers this excellent guidebook on living with attentiveness, meditation, and full-tilt compassion.

Part of what makes this book so accessible is Kornfield's use of everyday metaphors to describe the elusive lessons of spiritual transformation. For example, he opens with "the one seat" lesson taught to him by his esteemed teacher. Literally it means sitting in the center of a room and not being swayed or moved by all the people and dramas happening around you. On a spiritual level it means sticking "with one practice and teacher among all of the possibilities," writes Kornfield; "inwardly it means having the determination to stick with that practice through whatever difficulties and doubts arise until you have come to true clarity and understanding." The same could be said for this "one book." Among all the spiritual self-help books, this is a classic worth sticking with and returning to--a highly approachable teacher that can only lead to greater clarity and understanding. --Gail Hudson

From AudioFile

It's true that the best way to learn is by experience. Through Jack Kornfield's audiobook, which is part memoirs, part self-help, listeners learn how to incorporate their spiritual selves into modern life. First, listeners hear about Kornfield's own successes and failures (some quite funny), then put into practice the meditational exercises he offers. His tranquil tones are effective for teaching lessons in serenity. This audiobook helps listeners to redirect their source of energy from the rushed and overworked brain toward the area of the body that connects with all living things, the heart. R.A.P.

Ce livre est un véritable trésor ! Complet à tous les points de vues, il retrace le parcours, l'évolution spirituelle que la plupart d'entre nous vont parcourir dans notre quête de recherche intérieure. Beaucoup de détails sont donnés quant aux embûches, comment faire face à des éléments récurrents qui perturbent la méditation, comment intégrer la douleur et les émotions, comment nommer ce que nous ressentons, etc... L'auteur nous donne également une carte de l'évolution spirituelle, selon l'école bouddhique, en référant et en expliquant les différents niveaux de concentration que nous allons atteindre en chemin.
Beaucoup d'expériences personnelles sont partagées, ce qui nous permet de pouvoir rapprocher le contenu de nos propres expériences. Les explications sont claires et bien définies, de nombreux points sont évoqués et beaucoup de questions sur le chemin à parcourir trouvent réponse. Kornfield ne se contente pas d'expliquer son chemin mais donne parfois plus d'information sur la façon dont la Voie est perçue dans d'autres traditions. Les références sont vraiment très riches.
Si vous cherchez à perfectionner votre chemin et votre pratique, si vous cherchez à stabiliser et à renforcer votre pratique, ce livre soulèvera les questions nécessaires et vous aidera à rester propulsé sur votre chemin.
L'auteur met beaucoup d'importance sur le fait qu'une Voie complète est une qui a du Coeur.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Be Here Now" for the 90s 1 février 1999
Par dsmith@cs.waikato.ac.nz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Twenty years ago, when I was a college student, I got turned on to spirituality largely by reading Ram Dass' "Be Here Now." Kornfield's book could do the same thing for thousands of people today (to the consternation of apologists for other religions!).
A Path with Heart is pretty much my favorite book on spirituality. It contains both useful practical advice on living a spiritual life and amazing esoteric descriptions of super-normal states. Numerous pages contain "gems" that speak directly to my personal struggles and experiences. And Kornfield has a great sense of humor with deep compassion.
One of the things that attracts me to Buddhism is its relative lack of superstition and dogmatism. The essential teaching is practical, down-to-earth, and perfectly acceptable to a scientifically minded person. Still, many Buddhists believe in reincarnation, and Kornfield describes some pretty far out experiences involving, for example, reincarnation, angelic beings, and psychic powers.
Kornfield is a wonderful writer, and I hear that he is such a good teacher that one has to enter a lottery to get the chance to go to one of his retreats. He seems to be a charismatic, highly advanced being (though, who am I to judge?). But he would be the first to warn against starry-eyed adulation of him. An oft-repeated theme throughout the book -- and the topic of one whole chapter -- was the need to beware of unhealthy, exploitative relationships with teachers. Every spiritual seeker has one or more fallings-out with a teacher, he says. These fallings-out can be painful and damaging, but we must learn to learn from such events.
Many people get the impression that Buddhism is an austere, impersonal, ascetic religion, with little of the bhakti (devotion) found in many Christian and Hindu faiths. This book challenges that perception. Indeed, it's amazing how loving Buddhists can be, considering that they tend not to believe in God! One thing that impresses me is his apparently complete lack of cynicism and pessimism. Kornfield has only good things to say about every major religion.
In fact, another theme of the book is that Buddhism too should not be treated as a dogmatic teaching that we should grasp on to. Rather, it is a tool to be used to get where we want to go. Teachings and paths should be left behind when no longer needed, like a boat used to cross a river. (I'm reminded of Kornfield's story about a retreat in which two of his students, a married couple, were struggling hard to relax into meditation. Kornfield advised them to stop being so serious and to make love. They started to show up in the meditation hall smiling.)
I'm still not completely convinced that a spiritual seeker can get by without faith and trust in some sort of divine being or essence. But this books goes a long way to showing how an atheist can have faith and hope.
If you're on a spiritual path, or even if you're just curious and open-minded, read this book. (I feel like I'm writing an ad.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the very best books available on spiritual practice. 14 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
About two-thirds of the way through this extraordinary book, I can only add to the 5-star accolades accumulating here. I've read several other wonderfully erudite and inspiring authors on Buddhism, meditation and spirituality lately, but Kornfield's gentle pragmatism (particularly his advice on meditation and mindfulness in daily life) makes this one of the most endlessly useful books I've ever read, as well as one of the most affecting. If you're vacillating over the abundance of titles in this field, don't hesitate for a second over A Path With Heart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exceptional guide to meditation that covers everything 19 novembre 1999
Par Carolyn Elkins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Cassette
I've read many books on meditation and while each of them answers some of my questions, Jack Kornfield's book, A Path with Heart, answers every one save those that must be experienced first-hand in one's own time. His voice and advice is articulate, intelligent, humorous, open, patient and wise. He starts out by telling you a little about his own experience, goes on to cover the basics of vipassana meditation and then leads you bit by bit deep into the issues every meditator and spiritual seeker must face. What I love most about his teaching style is that he gives gentle, practical advice on the day-to-day, minute by minute stuff to do to explore, commit to, love being on the path. If my house were on fire and I had to grab only one book on my way out the door, it would be A Path with Heart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you only buy one book on Buddhism . . . 3 septembre 1999
Par Daniel Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Cassette
. . . let it be "A Path With Heart!" With wise and skillful words, Jack Kornfield is a master of teaching Buddhist practices including insight meditation (known as vipassanna) to Western students for over 20 years. Being a former Buddhist monk with a PHD in psychology, as well as a husband and father, he is able to communicate the practice of Buddhism in everyday life in a way that makes sense to Western minds. Kornfield embraces the stuggles and hindrances that are common to the spiritual path as well as offering timely and useful meditations for awakening, opening the heart and clear and humorous insight into basic Buddhist principles such as the 5 precepts, the Buddhist view of self (or lack thereof) and karma. With open arms and a deep understanding of the Western psyche and it's tangles, Kornfield delivers a book that is a love song, a workout and a survival manual for anyone committed to the spiritual path.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Personal and Universal 19 juin 2003
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read this book when it was first published and recognized immediately that Jack Kornfield's path was also 'my path'. It inspired a deepening of my spiritual practice and a truly happier and more peaceful life. I re-read it whenever I need a boost. This book is very personal, and also universal. Jack uses stories from his own experience to illuminate the path of a more general spiritual journey, and to entertain us.
It's a must for anyone seeking guidance for a spiritual journey or inspiration to begin one. A Path With Heart speaks to the heart, the mind, the body and the soul. It is accessible, it is not religious, it is not heavy duty philosophy. Read it.
