    Dear Brother, When you first asked me about how to practice meditation was it last week , I gave you a few vague answers and then dismissed it from my mind, thinking that while it is impressive that you consider it seriously, it is not really vital to you right now But, yesterday when you spoke about how difficult it

    This is a particularly nice guidance book on meditation and mindfulness I especially like Zinn s focus on non doing, which has nothing to do with being lazy or indolent, but the ability to simply let things be and allowing them to unfold in their own way 44 In short, this is the art of mindfullness, which Zinn says has to be

    I was recommended this book but I really struggled with it The problem might have been increased by the fact that I found a talking book version read by the author Authors probably should know better.Anyway, it also had lots of that kind of music you might hear while getting a massage I think that was also a mistake.I just can t imagine myself sitting focused on my own breathing
