0 Reviews
Rich with lucid instructions and practical insights, this book dispels the metaphysical haze that all too often surrounds the subject of meditation. Based on a lively workshop with fellow scientists, Charles Tart shows how the pragmatic and scientifically-inclined among us can bring mindfulness into everyday life without religious baggage -- while clearly explaining its many spiritual and health benefits. These highly interactive and often witty sessions in front of a sceptical audience anticipate the questions that any practical person might have about meditative mindfulness. If you have been looking for a clear teaching on how and why to meditate that is free of sectarian involvement, this is the book for you.
