Field of Blessings: Ritual and Consciousness in the Work of Buddhist Healers
On Sale March 26, 2021
Ji Hyang Padma believes that we are hungry for a direct experience of the sacred in this culture. We try to fill the void with technology, and its “quick fix” of images and information. This leaves us hungry for true connectivity. We don’t need more information. We need more appreciation. Gratitude opens the heart, and gives our life meaning; it becomes a form of spiritual experience that gives us strength.
Field of Blessings explores how meaning-making can be approached by deep examination of the stories of our lives, which bridge the gap between the inner world and the outer world, giving shape to our experience. How can these narratives be spoken, written, or embodied? Ritual is the story brought-to-life, and a powerful vehicle for spiritual transformation, for reconnecting people with an embodied wholeness. Ji Hyang Padma shows that Chod, Medicine Buddha practices, and other Tibetan rituals are used by healers to evoke sacred energies, radical empathy, and to contact deep archetypal realms of the psyche.

Dr. Ji Hyang Padma's brilliant book, Field of Blessings: , pulls together the essential of Buddhist healing, rituals and practices in an accessible way for all to read. There is a wealth of information for those in the West who struggle to understand the various sects and practices of Buddhism while artfully relating it to the western mind and consciousness. I found Ji Hyang's interviews with various Buddhist teachers and healers particularly illuminating. I highly recommend this book.
