A Fearless Heart Thupten Jinpa, Ph.D.

This long awaited Book is Available Now for Delivery to you 1st Week (5th-10th) of May 2015 “How the Courage to be Compassionate Can Transform Our Lives” “If we, as individuals and together as a global society, can take the compassionate part of our nature seriously, we have a real chance of making a more humane world.” In A FEARLESS HEART: How the Courage to be Compassionate Can Transform Our Lives (Avery, $25.95; Hardcover), Thupten Jinpa, Ph.D., highly acclaimed thought leader and the longtime English translator for the Dalai Lama, explores how powerful compassion can be, not just for others, but for our own well being. As the creator of the revolutionary course in compassion at Stanford, Jinpa draws upon his childhood as a Tibetan, his many years in monasteries in India, and the time he has spent alongside His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. Acknowledging the importance (and popularity) of the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, A Fearless Heart teaches us to take the next step towards compassion; it turns out that mindfulness will only get you out the door – it’s compassion practice that will take you where you want to go! But did you know many people actually fear compassion? Worried that we may be taken advantage of, or that we may become a slacker if we show too much self-compassion, it seems we resist a powerful instinct that correlates strongly with happiness, stress reduction, and a true sense of purpose. In fact, extensive research shows that being compassionate can lead to better health and a longer life. Using new science and psychology sourced from both contemporary Western and classical Buddhist sources, Author shows us how to train not only our compassion muscle, but also our self-compassion muscle. A Fearless Heart teaches, argues, and inspires, filled with remarkable stories of transformations that have resulted from the practice of compassion, including the author’s extraordinary personal experience as well; from a monastery in India, to fatherhood in Montreal, and all the lessons learned in between.
