What others say about this book…
Excellent book for the committed practitioner - …Initially it goes into great detail about getting your posture right, getting your breathing right, and how much can be learned about yourself and the Dharma by getting these basics right, acknowledging that this can sometimes be a painful process. So it starts right at the beginning. Then the book goes into great detail, in a way I have not found anywhere else, about how to approach your practise as it matures a little, when Stillness starts to become a more familiar experience. Reading this has really helped me, and that's why I say this is a book by a practitioner for practitioners. It touches on the stuff that is real for me from day to day. Highly recommended. - Mike Hogan (London)
Fresh and inspiring guide to practising the dharma - This book is a fantastic manual for any committed dharma practitioner. Unlike many books I have tried, this is written for a place of wisdom and experience which shines through on every page. I really can't recommend it enough. - A. Elliott (London)
The importance of stillness - …There is a simple clarity in the way he expresses the Dharma. Everyday sentences hold deep transforming potential that can at times be jaw-dropping. I recommend this book to those who want to know the cause of why we suffer and are interested in finding a way out. James Ferguson (UK)
