Mindfulness and Compassion: embracing life with loving kindness
Mindfulness & Compassion reveals how compassion is an innate human quality, and one that we can nurture and embrace in daily life. The Happy Buddha explores why compassion is the very essence of mindfulness and how we can connect with this loving quality through the transformational practice of meditation. Through personal and philosophical reflections, practical teachings, and enlightening insights into loving-kindness, joy, happiness, and contentment, he draws upon Buddhism, psychotherapy, and focusing (a way of listening to our intuitive wisdom) to reveal compassion as the key to true wellbeing for ourselves and each other.
