Stealing Fire from the Gods

In Stealing Fire from the Gods, Dr. Rechtshaffer draws upon many years of experience, both as a Buddhist practitioner and teacher, and as a therapist, to offer a fresh description of Buddhist meditation as an expression of our deepest spiritual longing. This very readable book integrates a deep understanding of Buddhist meditation with insights from Western psychology, and addresses both the powers and the potential blindspots of each tradition. The Buddhist teachings go to the heart of what we want most-to meet the larger being that we are and to ignite the fire of our aliveness. Here we discover that the enlightened energy and intelligence that we've attributed to our gods, is the very same energy and intelligence that burns in each of our hearts. Stealing Fire from the Gods reveals the way to insight, freedom, and love, and will inspire those seeking to follow a spiritual way of life.
