Transmission: Receiving the Living Wisdom of Spiritual Teachers by Jack KornfieldWhat is transmitted from a spiritual teacher to a student? The possibilities of love and freedom, of living in a joyful heart. Extraordinary spiritual teachers empower us, pointing us towards our own awakening. In their presence, we can feel the qualities of enlightenment rather than just hearing about them, and we are inspired to see in a new way.
With Transmission, author and teacher Jack Kornfield shares eight sessions of in-depth teachings illuminating the student-teacher relationship. Through a treasure trove of personal stories about the Dalai Lama, Ch�gyam Trungpa, Dipa Ma, Ajahn Chah, and other masters, we see how teachers embody the many facets of the jewel of enlightened consciousness--including humor, discipline, humility, joyousness, uncanny perspicacity, and unfathomable compassion--and how we too can fully awaken these qualities in ourselves.
Exploring such topics as devotion, the tender heart of sadness, meditation, and patience, Jack reveals the power of opening ones heart to a true spiritual teacher as well as the potential pitfalls and challenges of the teacher-student relationship. With warmth, humor, and practical advice--including what to do if there are no spiritual teachers near your home--Transmission opens possibilities for anyone to deepen, practice, and awaken.

The Power of Awareness course is a 7-week online mindfulness training course developed and presented by renowned mindfulness teachers Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield. The goal of the course is to help participants cultivate mental clarity, compassion and overall well-being in their lives. The training is centered around the power of the present moment, which is the place from which our reality is created. Our work lives, relationships, and our home lives are all created and fueled by the thoughts, feelings and actions that occur in our lives on a day-to-day basis. The thing is that we aren't necessarily aware of these thoughts, feelings and actions and the impact that they have. By understanding and learning to cultivate mindfulness in our lives we become better equipped to create the life that we dream of. That doesn't necessarily mean becoming a millionaire or any other material aspect of life — though stability is of course something that we all aspire to — but rather contentment and peace within ourselves, with our friends and family and those we interact with on a daily basis.

The present moment is the place from which your entire reality is created. Your work, relationships, home life and day to day experiences all spring forth from your thoughts, feelings and actions that occur in a string of infinite moments. But how many of us are truly aware of the thoughts, feeling and actions that give birth to our lives? How many of us have taken the time to cultivate and grow one of the critical skills that is required to create the life and world we dream of? In-depth mindfulness training is perhaps one of the most important steps you can take on your path of spiritual growth and evolution.
