Freedom for All of Us - A Monk, a Philosopher, and a Psychiatrist on Finding Inner Peace

Author(s): Matthieu Ricard; Christophe André; Alexandre Jollien

New In Stock | Philosophy

"We are, nearly all of us," writes Matthieu Ricard, "the playthings of our whims, conditioning, impulses, inner conflicts, wandering thoughts, and afflictive emotions. This servitude is at the root of much that torments us. How do we free ourselves from the prison of these mental mechanisms, in the face of which we often feel helpless, even resigned?" With their acclaimed book In Search of Wisdom, these three gifted friends--a monk, a philosopher, and a psychiatrist--shed light on our universal quest for meaning, purpose, and understanding. Now, in this new in-depth offering, they invite us to tend to the garden of our true nature, freedom. Turn by turn, each shares his own unique perspective on the various obstacles to inner freedom, the "ecology" of freedom, the ways to cultivate it, and the harvest that comes out of it. What emerges is a panoramic vision and roadmap for us to overcome the barriers that hinder our liberation. "It is our hope," they write, "that this book will provide clarification of the means for freeing ourselves from the causes of suffering." Filled with unexpected insights and specific strategies, Freedom for All of Us presents an inspiring guide for breaking free of the unconscious walls that confine us.
