Summary
"Why do we suffer? Is there a purpose to our pain? Reflecting on his own journey from 'Esquire magazine editor-in-chief to Buddhist meditation teacher, Phillip Moffitt provides a fresh perspective on the Buddha's ancient wisdom, showing how to move from suffering to new awareness and unanticipated joy. With a strong message of self-empowerment, 'Dancing with Life' offers a prescriptive path for finding joy and peace that will appeal to anyone searching for a more authentic life" --Cover, p. 4
