The path of insight meditation is a journey of understanding our bodies, our minds, and our lives, of seeing clearly the true nature of experience. For those who are treading this path, as well as those just starting out, Seeking the Heart of Wisdom will be a welcome companion along the way. Born out of the authors' twelve- year collaboration in teaching

intensive meditation retreats throughout the world, it guides the reader in developing the openness and compassion that are at the heart of this spiritual practice.

Among the topics covered are:

- The hindrances to meditation—ranging from doubt and fear to painful

knees—and skillful means of overcoming them

- How compassion can arise in response to the suffering we see in our own lives and in the world

- How to integrate a life of responsible action and service with a meditative life based on nonattachment

- The law of karma and how it enables us to actively create our reality
These and other discussions are accompanied by specific exercises and practices to help readers deepen their understanding of the subjects.
