How to Meditate: A Practical Guide
Product Description
In a world seemingly moving at hyperspeed, it can be daunting to simply slow down — or stop — even briefly to try to make sense of things. Meditation has been proven to help. But exactly what is it? Why practice it? Which techniques are best? This popular guide answers these and many more questions for anyone who wants to begin — or is struggling to maintain — a meditation practice. Written by a Western Buddhist nun with solid experience in both the practice and teaching of meditation, How to Meditate contains a wealth of practical advice on a variety of authentic techniques, from what to do with the mind, to how to sit, to visualizations and other traditional practices. Best of all, McDonald’s warm, encouraging approach is as close to the intimacy of private instruction as a book can be.

    Great book. The author really shows the purpose and tradition behind meditation. Amongst the best meditation books I’ve read, would highly recommend.

  2. I was suffering from an anxiety disorder and was looking for a way to help me that didn’t involve medication. I knew almost nothing about meditation but have been extremely pleased with the teachings of the book. I feel calmer, more at peace, and have really taken a strong look at my personal beliefs.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn about meditation and all that is has to offer!!

  3. This simple explanation of not only meditation technique, but its purpose

    and benefits is a wonderful reading experience and a perfect introduction to Buddhist philosophy which, when grasped, helps anyone open to it actually enjoy their life experience in a new and accepting manner.

    Maya, the world of of illusion, in which we live is a wonder despite its calamities and meditation helps that perspective take wings.

  4. I have been using this gem of a book for almost 25 years, every since its first edition in 1984. As a dharma teacher, meditation instructor, spiritual director and Buddhist chaplain, I have found Ven. Sangye Kkadro’s (Kathleen McDonald) book to be an invaluable tool in guiding students of meditation, whether they be beginners or with many years on the cushion.

    Rare is a manual on meditation that avoids much of the philosophical jargon that fill most meditation books out there and gets you practicing. If you’re absolutely a BEGINNER into the world of meditation and want to reap the benefits of mediation, then look no further.

    The meditation sessions that Kathleen encourages are very engaging. The book is easy to read and straight forward. A classic gem and highly recommended.
