Product Description

Details

Shantigarbha shows how we connect with each other in the space that opens up when we let go of our ideas of good and bad, right and wrong. When we feel safe and connected to ourselves, we don't need to use these labels, and we are also connected to the people around us with a sense of compassionate presence, intense closeness and empathy. To empathize with others, we need to learn how to empathize with ourselves, so that when we reach out, we do so from the inside out. To support this, in each chapter there are practical exercises for individual or group study. Shantigarbha also shows how through this empathy we can find a way to stay connected to our humanity, and contribute to a more peaceful world.

Press Reviews

‘A timely book with the growing recognition in science, psychology and business of the important function of empathy and the painful consequences of the lack of empathy. Shantigarbha shows the essential links between mindfulness, empathy and compassion as expressions of a well integrated heart and mind. This book is essential reading for those who wish to explore this important area of inner work.' Christopher Titmuss, Insight Meditation teacher, co-founder of Gaia House retreat centre.

‘An excellent book on empathy that teases out the centrality of this value in Buddhism as the foundation for the cultivation of compassion and loving kindness. In applying this and other insights to the therapeutic contexts of mindfulness and non-violent communication, he provides a sound conceptual basis for these therapies and illustrates concrete ways in which Buddhist practices can be realized in the world we live in today without having to subscribe to the doctrines or beliefs of traditional Buddhism.' Stephen Batchelor, Buddhist teacher and author, co-founder of Sharpham College
