If you practice mediation, this is the book you’ll want to take everywhere with you! Steve and Rosemary Weissman offer insights into the development process, because when you start to meditate, you eventually will look at all the problems that people on the spiritual path want to overcome. How do you deal with anger, fear, greed, aversion, or being judgmental? The Weissmans offer a guided meditation to help get rid of feelings of guilt and lack of self-worth; they present a way to learn how to look at the world around you with compassion and lovingkindness. Full of practical information, this is a resource that you’ll use over and over again, and you may want to give it to a friend.
The Weissmans teach mediation retreats at the Wat Kow Tahm Meditation Center in Thailand. They also teach in the United States and at their center in Australia. This book was written at the request of people who have studied with them, for many students of Vipassana meditation wanted a ready reference to take home. Included with the text is basic instruction for working with meditation postures – sitting, standing, lying, and walking—so you can learn to use Vipassana mediation techniques everywhere you go.
