After the Ecstasy, the Laundry by Jack Kornfield. When does enlightenment come? At the end of the spiritual journey? Or the beginning? On 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.
Perfect enlightenment appears in many texts, Kornfield begins. But how is it viewed among Western teachers and practitioners? To find out, Kornfield talked to more than one hundred Zen masters, rabbis, nuns, lamas, monks, and senior meditation students from all walks of life. 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 its scope, and warmly told by one of American Buddhism?s most trusted voices, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry is both a work of 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 newest book, After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.
