內容簡介

深刻而美麗,James R. Doty告訴讀者,幸福不能沒有苦難,慈悲是從了解自己的痛苦和苦難中誕生的,只有當我們心中有愛,才能真正的幸福。──釋一行禪師。

樂觀、動人的真理追尋。──Kirkus Reviews

成長在一個父親酗酒、母親長期抑鬱且中風癱瘓的家庭,童年比同年紀的同學都要艱難,不斷與貧窮鬥爭,成年後與家庭創傷拔河,沒有經歷過的難以想像,這是世界級史丹佛大學神經外科博士James R. Doty撰寫的半自傳故事,毫不藏私,分享他不堪的過往。

上帝關了這扇窗,會再幫你開另一扇窗,對James R. Doty而言,這扇窗開得正時,他進入了一間神奇的店,遇到奇女子Ruth,她教他一連串的練習,從根本上改變自己的大腦、心,然後改變生活……綜合了科學、靈感,及部分真實故事,作者以抒情、動人的筆觸,展示不可思議、鼓舞人心的奇幻旅程,點石成金。

Extraordinary things happen when we harness the power of both the brain and the heart
 
Growing up in the high desert of California, Jim Doty was poor, with an alcoholic father and a mother chronically depressed and paralyzed by a stroke. Today he is the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is a founding benefactor. But back then his life was at a dead end until at twelve he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb. Instead he met Ruth, a woman who taught him a series of exercises to ease his own suffering and manifest his greatest desires. Her final mandate was that he keep his heart open and teach these techniques to others. She gave him his first glimpse of the unique relationship between the brain and the heart.
 
Doty would go on to put Ruth’s practices to work with extraordinary results—power and wealth that he could only imagine as a twelve-year-old, riding his orange Sting-Ray bike. But he neglects Ruth’s most important lesson, to keep his heart open, with disastrous results—until he has the opportunity to make a spectacular charitable contribution that will virtually ruin him. Part memoir, part science, part inspiration, and part practical instruction, Into the Magic Shop shows us how we can fundamentally change our lives by first changing our brains and our hearts.
