Book Review: The Courage to Feel: Buddhist Practices for Opening to Others (Rob Preece)

More than a simple book on the benefits of generating bodhichitta, Preece combines his Buddhist practice with his years as a psychotherapist to offer a unique Jungian point of view in examination of the psychological and emotional implications of awakening the compassionate heart in each of us.

This fusion of Western and Eastern perspectives serves to reinforce the importance of being compassionate not only towards others, but towards ourselves as well. Even though this book is written from a Buddhist perspective, it is not meant for an exclusively Buddhist audience since nearly anyone can benefit from opening up to a more compassionate way of living.

From Snow Lion Publications and available from your local, independent bookseller. (Shop local, shop independent, and tell ‘em you saw it on Elephant Journal!)
