<b>An instant <i>New York Times</i> bestseller<br /><br />Two spiritual giants. Five days. One timeless question.</b><br /> <b>聽</b><br />Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships鈥攐r, as they would say, because of them鈥攖hey are two of the most joyful people on the planet.<br /><br />In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?<br /><br />They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy.<br /><br />This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecendented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.<br /><br />We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy鈥攆rom fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives.<br /><br />The Archbishop has never claimed sainthood, and the Dalai Lama considers himself a simple monk. In this unique collaboration, they offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, of courage, and of joy to which we can all aspire in our own lives.

<i>For many of us, feelings of deficiency are right around the corner. It doesn鈥檛 take much--just hearing of someone else鈥檚 accomplishments, being criticized, getting into an argument, making a mistake at work--to make us feel that we are not okay. Beginning to understand how our lives have become ensnared in this trance of unworthiness is our first step toward reconnecting with who we really are and what it means to live fully. <br /> </i><b>鈥攆rom <i>Radical Acceptance</i></b><br /><br /> 鈥淏elieving that something is wrong with us is a deep and tenacious suffering,鈥?says Tara Brach at the start of this illuminating book. This suffering emerges in crippling self-judgments and conflicts in our relationships, in addictions and perfectionism, in loneliness and overwork鈥攁ll the forces that keep our lives constricted and unfulfilled. Radical Acceptance offers a path to freedom, including the day-to-day practical guidance developed over Dr. Brach鈥檚 twenty years of work with therapy clients and Buddhist students.<br /><br /> Writing with great warmth and clarity, Tara Brach brings her teachings alive through personal stories and case histories, fresh interpretations of Buddhist tales, and guided meditations. Step by step, she leads us to trust our innate goodness, showing how we can develop the balance of clear-sightedness and compassion that is the essence of<i> Radical Acceptance. Radical Acceptance</i> does not mean self-indulgence or passivity. Instead it empowers genuine change: healing fear and shame and helping to build loving, authentic relationships. When we stop being at war with ourselves, we are free to live fully every precious moment of our lives.

Why are more and more psychotherapists embracing meditation practice, while so many Buddhists are exploring psychology? 鈥淏oth psychology and Buddhism seek to provide freedom from suffering,鈥?explains Bruce Tift, 鈥測et each offers a completely different approach for reaching this goal.鈥?In <i>Already Free</i>, Tift opens a fresh and provocative dialogue between these two profound perspectives on the human condition.<br /> 聽<br /> Tift reveals how psychotherapy鈥檚 鈥淒evelopmental鈥?approach of understanding the way our childhood wounds shape our adult selves both contradicts and supports the 鈥淔ruitional鈥?approach of Buddhism, which tells us that the freedom we seek is always available. In this investigation, he uncovers insights for connecting with authentic experience, releasing behaviors that no longer serve us, enhancing our relationships, and more. 鈥淲hen we use the Western and Eastern approaches together,鈥?writes Bruce Tift, 鈥渢hey can help us open to all of life鈥攊ts richness, its disturbances, and its inherent completeness.鈥?/div>

Acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters, this modern epic became an instant bestseller upon publication in 1974, transforming a generation and continuing to inspire millions. This 25th Anniversary Quill Edition features a new introduction by the author; important typographical changes; and a Reader's Guide that includes discussion topics, an interview with the author, and letters and documents detailing how this extraordinary book came to be. A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, the book becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions of how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning; the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, <em>Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance</em> is a touching and transcendent book of life.
