“Beautifully written, Unbinding inspires the reader to let go, to let be.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Love


Unbinding is a rare accomplishment. In this book, Kathleen Dowling Singh has explored one of the most profound aspects of the Buddha’s teachings—The Law of Dependent Origination. She brings to life the patterns of conditioning that limit us when not understood and free us as we more fully realize how they operate in our lives. With clarity and grace, she invites the reader into its world of transforming wisdom. Unbinding is a great contribution to our deepening Dharma understanding.” —Joseph Goldstein, author of Mindfulness

We all want the freedom of sanity and peace, the undefended inclusiveness of love. We all want refuge in grace.”—Kathleen Dowling Singh, from her introduction to Unbinding

Unbinding is a spacious and sophisticated unfolding of one of Buddhism’s subtlest foundational teachings—the truth of dependent origination—offered in an utterly intimate voice. Kathleen Dowling Singh offers lyrical reflections on timeless truths and contemplative exercises accessible to anyone, opening the door of insight to all. Drawing on the language and teachings of Buddhism, Unbinding invites everyday mystics from all traditions—or none—to encounter the sacred and experience grace firsthand. Singh shows how illusions of ego obscure our true, unbounded nature and trap us in suffering—as she helps the reader move ever more deeply into living from gratitude, wisdom, and love.
