How to Meditate: A Practical Guide to Making Friends with Your Mind

by Pema Chodron - £15.99  Sounds True Inc (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781604079333 | ISBN 10: 1604079339

Pema Chodron is treasured around the world for her unique ability to transmit teachings and practices that bring peace, understanding, and compassion into our lives. With How to Meditate, the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun presents her first book exploring in-depth what she considers the essentials for a lifelong practice.
 
More and more people are beginning to recognize a profound inner longing for authenticity, connection, and aliveness. Meditation, Pema explains, gives us a golden key to address this yearning. This step-by-step guide shows readers how to honestly meet and openly relate with the mind, embrace the fullness of our experience, and live in a wholehearted way as we discover:
 
* The basics of meditation, from getting settled and the six points of posture to working with your breath and cultivating an attitude of unconditional friendliness
* The Seven Delights - how moments of difficulty can become doorways to awakening and love
* Shamatha (or calm abiding), the art of stabilizing the mind to remain present with whatever arises
* Thoughts and emotions as "sheer delight" - instead of obstacles - in meditation
