Opening to generosity.

Not a talk given by Jack as I was expecting, but a fantastic teaching all the same. Thank you to Dale, Jack and everyone else at be here now.
Lots of love.

Soul food

Jack Kornfield is a blessing to our planet and this wonderful series of podcasts offer sublime nourishment for the soul. I have a health condition for which I have been told there is no cure. An hour with Jack’s gentle wisdom and wry good humour and I feel restored. If, like me, you are interested in Buddhist approaches to enlightenment or just how to become a happier, more balanced person then you will find much to help you here.
