Review: Journey of Awakening: A Meditator's Guidebook

User Review  - Lance - Goodreads

Great book. He made it understandable to a common reader. The book really makes you think about eliminating/rethinking poor personal traits we all deal with such as an ego. Also a good introduction to meditation if one was looking to start meditating. Read full review
