Description

When does enlightenment come? At the end of the spiritual journey? Or the beginning? In After the Ecstasy, the Laundry, Jack Kornfield - author of the modern classic on American Buddhism, A Path with Heart - brings into focus the truth about satori, the awakened state of consciousness, and enlightenment practices today. The result is this extraordinary look at the hard work we all must do - the laundry - no matter how often we experience ecstatic states of consciousness through meditation and other disciplines.

Sweeping in scope, and warmly told by one of American Buddhism's most trusted voices, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry is a work of both deep inspiration and daily instruction that cuts through the confusion about what enlightenment really is, who it comes to, and how it continues to inform and guide our spiritual lives.

An original audio adaptation of Jack Kornfield's book, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.

A beautiful and wise book that cuts through spiritual materialism, tapping in a wide set of traditions to show the variety of paths leading to grace, right here, right now.

Fabulous as always

Love his books. Never want them to end. So much to sit back and reflect on. In regard to someone's comment about them not liking the author doing the narrating.....I find the author the only one fit for the job. Love this author.

Title points to meat of the message

As a novice myself, I would recommend this book to new practitioners. If you are past the honeymoon stage and like insights into the daily reality of the enlightened, I would recommend this book. Or, if you want some feel good stories and some soothing verbal vibrations, I would recommend this listen.

A classic

Always worth re-reading (listening), appropriate for all stages of life. At first I thought his voice was too sleepy, but I ended up finding it soothing.

So beautiful!!!!!

I would give this book 10 stars. Its so good I bought a paperback so I could linger in it, write notes on the pages and savor each sentence. A great teaching tool for self and others as well. The best of Jack's work I have read to date. Thank you Jack.

Great Listen.

Jack has a terrific podcast mainly composed of his talks, that's where I first really got into his work. Hearing his voice adds a layer of depth and emphasis that I cannot recommend enough.

It's a great read with great messages. I do wish he went into even more detail of people's "satori" moments. But that's just me being greedy. Good listen. Great for winding down in the evenings.

Human

This book brings to light the humanity of many seekers along the path whether they are students or teachers. It reminds the reader that there is always more to learn and do together on the journey throughout life and that this is a good thing. This is my own short representation of this book, of course. I highly recommend it.
