    I love the podcast but I suggest reconsidering the BetterHelp sponsorship. BetterHelp is not a conscientious mental health provider.

  • songwritergirl
    Thank you
    I’ve always listened to and loved the teachings of Jack Kornfield; his thoughtful, elegant, soulful dharma talks have kept me tuned in for years. But I had wandered away from my mindfulness practice in the weirdness of this pandemic. This podcast has really tuned me back in to being able to observe, and to feel compassion for myself, and for others. As I listened to one of the talks, I found myself sitting with tears rolling down my face, realizing how strong I was requiring myself to be while battling loneliness, grief, fear, and my mind’s constructions of various futures, all rather unpleasant. Thank you, Jack, for helping us keep our hearts open and our minds still. It’s a great gift.

    Elegant, erudite, but with a light touch...
    These teachings will encourage anyone interested in living a more human, insightful, and compassionate life. It’s not necessary to be a Buddhist to allow the presentations to shape one’s spiritual practice . I often listen at night, and find it relaxing. Thank you, Jack and Spirit Rock!

    The voice of wisdom
    In an other wise chaotic world there is a voice of wisdom, calm, and love. Jack is the epitome of teacher. If everyone followed him the world would be a much much better place. Peace.

    Beautiful Keynote with Jack.
    I am so thankful for these keynotes being saved and put into a podcast. I always hear or learn something new every time I listen to a new episode or one I have listened to many times before. It is nice to find a podcast that is truly educated on the lifestyle.

    Leave the politics out
    I love Jack so much; since 2009 I have been a dedicated listener and reader of his works. He transformed my world. I fear, however, that he is alienating certain people by veering too much into politics with every talk. Whether or not he is right in his judgment isn’t the point; we’re all trying to come together to hear a message that transcends party lines, the US presidency, and the identity politics of present day narratives. Please consider.

    Episode 2 turn off
    I read Jack’s book, A Path with Heart and enjoyed it, so I turned to his podcast for more. The second episode is a complete turn off from anything else he has to offer. I tried for weeks to let the commentary be what it was, and not let it disturb me. But phrases like “I like to F women” were casually tossed into a deeply meaningful conversation about death and seeking the Christ mind, with no rebuttal from Jack. It felt like verbal assault. Being raised in Christian America- I’m supposed to let “boys be boys” - and that is one of the reasons I turned to meditation and mindfulness, seeking beyond the confines of dominant religions like Christianity that keep women down. I find it difficult to listen to him speak on any topic of enlightenment after he dropped the ball in what felt like listening to a group of bros talking about their penises in such a Western-dominate way. Sex is taught to be something to honor and enter into mindfully, not just in conservative religions but in Buddhism as well. Sex is also something that can be over-consumed and drain our vital life energy if our mental formations about it are not healthy. As he spoke it became clear that this comedian Jack spoke with thinks that with Eastern philosophy, freeing yourself from feeling guilty or bad about sex = you can say/feel whatever you want because it’s a all natural/manly experience. There’s a lot more he has to learn, and yet a teacher like Jack didn’t offer him or the other listeners the opportunity.

    Chicken soup for the soul.
    Jack is a treasure! I have found so much comfort and wisdom in these podcasts. If your feeling down or disconnected, listen to some stories, and consider some ancient wisdoms.

    Wonderful show. Great introduction and, at times deep dive, into Buddhist principles and how they can have an affect on our lives. Listened to all of them (some on repeat :) Also, the most relaxing voice. Thank you Jack and everyone who makes it available. ♥️

    Like a re-calibration
    I love this podcast! I have had Jack’s recording of the loving kindness meditation in my rotation for years, and this is like the next step for me. Anytime I listen to this podcast, I feel like I am returning to center, to what is important, and away from the things that I so often give too much weight in my life. ❤️!

  • Eternally Gratefull
    In eternal gratitude
    If Ram Das were no longer still with his corporal state in this plane of consciousness, I would testify to Jack Kornfield as being a Rimpoche of his soul. Dear Jack, you & your dear wife, Trudy (of equal & just merit) are among the crucial, central fonts of genuine spiritual wisdom; loving awareness & messengers of the One true Consciousness to we, the thwarted, skewed, lost & hungry souls “caught” in this Western materialists realm of our misguided existence. The entire “collective” of all your fellow seekers & spiritual teachers of your generation, we owe our eternal gratitude to. Thank you Lord of all creation for bringing this genuine, loving wisdom to us through these true Bhodisattvas.

    I was drawn into Jack's personable and understandble wisdom. The quick witted humor was suprising. I'd always wondered how incredible it would be to have a great teacher to have a stream. I was very thankful that such a thing exists. Hard to believe! I'm loving it! Thank you.
