Delightful and beautifully written everyday lessons on compassion. Living with an Open Heart contains brief readings which blend Buddhist and western psychology. It thoughtfully presents ideas and techniques drawn from Buddhism, western psychological approaches, as well as the authors' personal experiences in working to develop compassion in their own lives and in their work with others.
Designed to be easy to dip into, this fascinating book is organised into brief chapters to include discussions, reflections and contemplations, personal stories, and specific techniques for deepening compassion.
Each chapter provides fuel for thought and contemplation as the reader goes through his or her day, inspiring their motivation to be compassionate, helping them to understand compassion, and giving them specific methods for applying it in their lives.
