Heartwork

by Radhule Weininger

Description
This is the best kind of popular psychology--accessible, practical, useful--with the depth of the author's practice as a clinical psychologist and meditation instructor coming through at all times. The author interweaves her own as well as psychotherapy clients' stories together as a means for the reader to engage their own life in relation to the 9 Practices of Compassion, which is the cornerstone of the book. The 9 Practices uniquely integrate mindfulness, intention, self-compassion, compassion for others, and compassion for all beings as natural stages of development. The presentation of clinical stories, from a mother struggling with a drug-addicted daughter to a man dealing with an angry temper, are relatable and not only demonstrate the application of the principles but also speak to the human struggle to be compassionate.
