Summary
  • 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
