Through Zen meditation it is possible to find stillness of mind, even amidst our everyday activitiesand this practical book-and-CD set reveals how. John Daido Loori, one of America's leading Zen teachers, offers everything needed to begin a meditation practice. He covers the basics of where to sit (on a cushion, bench, or chair), how to posture the body (complete with instructional photographs), and how to practice Zen meditation to discover the freedom of a peaceful mind. The accompanying CD is a meditation companion. It has ten- and thirty-minute timed practice sessions, along with guided instructions from Daido Loori and an encouraging talk on the benefits of meditation. Page 15 Page 22
