Thank you

I’ve always listened to and loved the teachings of Jack Kornfield; his thoughtful, elegant, soulful dharma talks have kept me tuned in for years. But I had wandered away from my mindfulness practice in the weirdness of this pandemic. This podcast has really tuned me back in to being able to observe, and to feel compassion for myself, and for others. As I listened to one of the talks, I found myself sitting with tears rolling down my face, realizing how strong I was requiring myself to be while battling loneliness, grief, fear, and my mind’s constructions of various futures, all rather unpleasant. Thank you, Jack, for helping us keep our hearts open and our minds still. It’s a great gift.

Elegant, erudite, but with a light touch...

These teachings will encourage anyone interested in living a more human, insightful, and compassionate life. It’s not necessary to be a Buddhist to allow the presentations to shape one’s spiritual practice . I often listen at night, and find it relaxing. Thank you, Jack and Spirit Rock!

The voice of wisdom

In an other wise chaotic world there is a voice of wisdom, calm, and love. Jack is the epitome of teacher. If everyone followed him the world would be a much much better place. Peace.
