Dancing With Life
Buddhist Insights for Finding Meaning and Joy in the Face of SufferingBook - 2008
Why do we suffer? Is there a purpose to our pain? Can we affect how much we suffer? Noting that humans have wrestled with such questions for thousands of years, Phillip has found answers for his own life in Buddhist philosophy. In this deeply spiritual book that is sure to become a Buddhist classic, he explores the 12 insights that underlie the Buddha's core teaching - the Four Noble Truths - and uses these often neglected insights to guide readers to more meaningful lives. Moffitt writes: These 12 insights teach you to dance with both the joy and pain, finding peace in a balanced mind and calm spirit. As the most specific, practical life instructions I have ever encountered, they serve as an invaluable tool for anyone who seeks a life filled with meaning and well-being. With insightful writing and a strong message of self-empowerment, Dancing with Life offers a prescriptive path for finding joy and peace that will appeal to readers of Dharma Wisdom, Moffitt's bimonthly column in Yoga Journal, as well as anyone searching for a more meaningful life.
