Item Description

 

Enjoy not just one but two volumes on kindness from author Sharon Salzberg.

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.

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, Ms. Salzberg explores with insight and clarity how kindness for ourselves and others can be the quality we choose to steer our lives by.

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out with one woman and her tape recorder, Sounds True has grown into a multimedia publishing company with a catalog of over 600 titles, including spoken-word audio, audio learning courses, books, interactive learning kits, music, and instructional DVDs. Their offerings feature some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time and embrace the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities.

"Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology--rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential ‘living wisdom’ of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher," says publisher Simon. Sounds True strives to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.

To maintain their integrity as a business and a publisher, Sounds True strives to embody the qualities of consciousness and compassion taught by their authors in the day-to-day business practices and environmental responsibility. Please visit their website and learn more about our partner Sounds True.
