Heartwork, The Path of Self-Compassion
9 Simple Practices for Joyful, Wholehearted Life
Compassion is the urge to understand and alleviate the suffering of another being. And if that being happens to be you, then the technique called self-compassion can be the greatest of blessings—for the compassion you learn to apply to yourself naturally extends to all the other people in your life. With the nine simple mindfulness practices she presents here, Radhule Weininger provides a step-by-step course in self-compassion. Using stories drawn from her own life and those of others she shows that, with the right intention and practice, we can all deepen our capacity to respond skillfully to our own suffering and thus to that of others and our world.
“Heartwork is a beautiful and encouraging book. It offers a compass, a map, a guide to help navigate the tender, at times difficult passages of life. It spells out how we should hold ourselves and others with compassion and understanding. Its greatest gift is its practicality; it offers direct help to the heart.”
— Jack Kornfield
“Radhule Weininger brings us practices that serve to free us from fear, despair, self-hate, and other oppressive mind-states. Her work helps me to be more present in each moment, more mindful in each encounter.”
