Discover inner capacities for mindfulness, joy, dignity, confidence and compassion as you awaken to your truest nature.
Jack Kornfield has taught meditation internationally since 1974 as one of first American teachers to introduce Buddhist mindfulness practice to the West.

Mahasi Sayadaw of Burma. He eventually trained as a Buddhist monk at monasteries in Thailand, India and Burma.
