The Five Powers by Stephen Fulder
"In a direct and lovely way, Stephen, a meditation teacher and a peacemaker in Israel and Palestine shows us how to steady our hearts, how to live and embody trust and wisdom in an uncertain world."
Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart on Stephen Fulder's book The Five Powers
Use proven tools for radical transformation and invite deeper meaning and more ease, steadiness and freedom into your life.
How can we surf the waves of change rather than be submerged by them? How can we rise above the conflicts and unhappiness that can assail us, meeting them from a more expansive and equanimous place? How do we perform a restart? Is it possible to radically transform our daily life? How do we emerge from this sense of endless struggle? How can we invite deeper meaning and more ease, steadiness, and freedom into our lives?
The Buddhist teaching of The Five Powers - Trust, Energy, Mindfulness, Calm and Wisdom - are the basic equipment that we all need to transform our life. They are the essence of Buddhist inspired teachings, highly developed, extraordinarily effective and sophisticated. Mindfulness is just one of the five. The other four are equally powerful and effective, but less examined.
The Five Powers work together to amplify and empower each other. They have been described as five horses working together to skillfully draw the carriage of our being to states of contentment and liberation.
