Faith: Trusting Your Own Deepest Experience by Sharon Salzberg
How to choose faith over fear to develop trust in ourselves and in life.
* Sharon Salzberg, one of the most inspiring and eminent spiritual teachers of our time, tells her powerful, personal story and shares with readers the way that they too can learn to find faith; not in a spiritual teacher, a God or a religion, but in themselves.
* Includes an account of the author's childhood: deserted by her mentally ill father, her mother died of a haemorrhage when Sharon was nine and she consequently grew up with her grandparents, isolated and withdrawn.
* To find a way through her suffering, Sharon investigated meditation and Buddhism, travelling through Asia and studying with many famous masters. Here she reveals her discoveries and describes methods that can be practised by anyone of any tradition, regardless of religion or spiritual beliefs.
* This book offers a way to feel at ease and at peace with yourself, and to discover your capacity for happiness, freedom and awakening.
