An introduction to insight meditation
With insight meditation you can become free from emotional conflict and open to the rich world of your senses. It enables you to see the spacious quality of your mind, discover how your thoughts and emotions work and see where your thoughts arise from and where they go.
You can also discover answers to the big questions about human consciousness. The book includes short essays and aphorisms that reflect on the universal experiences of love, relationships, work and solitude.
