Using delightful and deceptively powerful stories from everyday experiences, beloved Buddhist teacher Sylvia Boorstein demystifies spirituality, charts the path to happiness through the Buddha's basic teachings, and presents the means to eliminate hindrances and see clearly to develop a realistic course toward wisdom and compassion. A wonderfully engaging guide, full of humor, memorable insights, and love.
