In A Heart as Wide as the World, Sharon offers a book of encouragement and inspiration for anyone on the spiritual path. In short sections that include many stories and anecdotes culled from twenty-five years as a student and teacher of Buddhist meditation, Sharon reveals how our own happiness is found in the capacity to open our hearts to others. And that this capacity is far more vast than we aver thought possible. Through meditation and the practice of lovingkindness, we can discover our intimate connection to those around us and to the world as a whole. This realization acts like a hidden storehouse of strength, allowing us to face whatever the world offers us with wisdom and compassion. In these pages, Sharon shows us that our heart can be truly as wide as the world.
