A friend criticizes you. You grow impatient with someone you’re trying to help. A cell phone user annoys you on a train. Would your first response to these situations be kindness? In The Kindness Handbook, Sharon Salzberg explores with insight and clarity how kindness for ourselves and others can be the quality we choose to steer our lives by. From the foundation of this transformative practice and its entry point through you, to its daily expression in your life, this book features a thoughtful collection of anecdotes, stories, and practical tools to inspire kindness for any life situation. The Kindness Handbook is your personal companion to explore the rich landscape of kindness—and help you see just how it might shift and open up your life to greater joy, meaning, and compassion. “For kindness to be more fully realized, it needs to be distinguished from being ineffectual or meek. It also needs to be infused with wisdom, supported by courage, and threaded with balance.” —Sharon Salzberg, author of The Kindness Handbook "This book is like having Sharon and her gentle wisdom on call, 24-7, to remind you that in every moment, kindness can make a huge difference in how the next moment unfolds, in yourself and in others. This simple practice will light up and lighten your life.” —Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to Our Senses and Arriving at Your Own Door “Sharon Salzberg is a powerful teacher of the enduring value of kindness. Here she brings her teachings to us in a beautiful and accessible form through moving stories and powerful exercises. The world needs more kindness. Sharon is showing us the way.” —Roshi Joan Halifax, abbot at the Upaya Zen Center “With the deep wisdom gained by her many years of dharma practice and the greatness of her Being, Sharon leads us gently with confident strength and inspiration down the path to true happiness and love. Sleep with this book under your pillow!” —Krishna Das, author of Flow of Grace

Distill the great spiritual teachings from around the world down to their most basic principles, and one thread emerges to unite them all: kindness. In The Force of Kindness, Sharon Salzberg, one of the nation's most respected Buddhist authors and meditation teachers, offers practical instruction on how we can cultivate this essential trait within ourselves. Through her stories, teachings, and guided meditations, Sharon Salzberg takes readers on an exploration of what kindness truly means and the simple steps to realize its effects immediately. She reveals that kindness is not the sweet, naive sentiment that many of us assume it is, but rather an immensely powerful force that can transform individual lives and ripple out, changing and improving relationships, the environment, our communities, and ultimately the world. Readers will learn specific techniques for cultivating forgiveness; turning compassion into action; practicing speech that is truthful, helpful, and loving; and much more. When we fan even the smallest ember of kindness, according to Sharon Salzberg, we begin to overcome our own fears, doubts, and personal attachments—and tap an endless source of gentle strength that is always available to us. With her graceful writing and six guided meditations on CD, this beloved meditation master empowers readers to enhance The Force of Kindness in their own spiritual practice.

Most people say that when they lose weight and look better, they'll like themselves more. Jean Fain suggests that we've got it all backward. """"The best way to lose weight and look your best is to stop dieting and start with loving who you are."""" With The Self-Compassion Diet, this Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist shares a revolutionary new model for lasting weight loss. Combining the best of four proven weight-loss methods - self-love, mindfulness, self-hypnosis, and group support - this unique mind-body approach cultivates true self-acceptance which paradoxically produces remarkable physical changes. The Self-Compassion Diet is available in two complementary formats. The book describes the four weight-loss methods. The audio edition guides listeners through the exercises described in the book. Used together, this powerful combination can speed learning and boost success. Topics covered include: Practicing kindness to help you develop the ''habit of compassion'' for yourself Using the power of positive suggestions to potentially double your weight loss Finding ''the inspiration'' - hope and motivation where you least expect it Self-compassion,'' Fain teaches, """"is the missing ingredient in every diet.'' The Self-Compassion Diet invites you to pass up deprivation and self-loathing and indulge in healthy portions of loving kindness.
