Journey of Awakening: A Meditator's Guidebook
Ram Dass is an American psychologist and spiritual teacher who has studied and practiced meditation for many years. Here he shares his understanding and explores the many paths of meditation--from mantra, prayer, singing, visualizations, and "just sitting" to movement meditations such as tai chi--and suggests how you can find methods suitable for you. He illuminates the stages and benefits of meditative practice, and provides wise and often humorous advice on overcoming difficulties along the way.
From the Paperback edition.

I like Dass, but this just isn't one of his better books. He seems to repeat himself a lot. This was a required text for a RSc class I took. Read full review
