What does it mean to be born into this human form with an ever-changing body and mind, subjected to forces seemingly out of our control? How can we possibly feel at home in our own lives amidst the inevitable torrent of change? Sharon Salzberg has explored many profound questions such as these and shares a simple wisdom that opens us to a new way of being. She uses the Buddha’s teachings as the compass and says we are all capable of developing the consciousness necessary to ask the questions and know the answers for ourselves through the power of awareness. To have a personal and intimate sense of the Truth is as much our birthright as our potential.
