Overview

The Passionate Mind: A Manual for Living Creatively with One's Self by Joel Kramer, Dora Cornwall

In The Passionate Mind, Joel Kramer asserts that "what we believe determines much of what we think and do: the way we move, the way we respond to people, how we think of ourselves, how we see the world in general." His basic message, stated in short, clear prose, is that passion is to be found only in the present moment, and mainly through becoming aware of the thoughts flowing through our minds, and through the primal process of observing our thoughts, they begin to self-correct. From the author of The Guru Papers, The Passionate Mind is a wonderful journey for anyone seeking to discover how to look at oneself.

What People are Saying About This

Alan Watts

Joel Kramer, in his own unique way, shares direct ways of helping you to experience being both the Known and the Knower.

Gordon Sherman

Perhaps Joel Kramer's singular merit lies in his content which is so unusual, so startling, as to grip the mind and shake its foundations. He deals with simple, even commonplace subjects which have been abused again and again. Only he brings fresh impact to their understanding. Former Chairman of the Board of California School of Professional Psychology

Anais Nin

The Passionate Mind held my interest throughout, which for me is unusual. It presents basic verities in a way that anyone could assimilate, with beauty and simplicity.
