Buddhism asserts that we each have the potential to free ourselves from the prison of our problems. As practiced for more than twenty-six hundred years, the process involves working with, rather than against, our depression, anxiety, and compulsions. We do this by recognizing the habitual ways our minds perceive and react — the way they mislead. The lively exercises and inspiring real-world examples Cayton provides can help you transform intractable problems and neutralize suffering by cultivating a radically liberating self-understanding.
“This is truly a manual for becoming a happier and kinder person.”

“Karuna Cayton’s analysis and method in The Misleading Mind are well thought-out and should be a great help to readers.”
— Lama Zopa Rinpoche, spiritual director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition
