Description
 
With so many different kinds of meditation available, is it possible to identify one approach as more effective then others?  After spending 16 years practicing various types of meditation and several years studying relevant scientific research, writer Marshall Glickman found the answer to that important question is a definitive yes:  the sensation-based method of vipassana meditation taught by the Indian/Burmese meditation master S.N. Goenka stands apart.  BEYOND THE BREATH clearly explains why whole-body vipassana is so effective - and how it can change unhealthy attitudes, perceptions and patterns of behavior at the deepest, unconscious level.
    Vipassana meditation provides a practical method of self-awareness, allowing us to face difficulties in a calm and relaxed way.  By concentrating on the bodys sensations, one comes to see the inherently fleeting nature of our feelings and experiences - opening the door to genuine, lasting peace of mind.
    BEYOND THE BREATH presents sensation-based meditation ( which is believed to be the way the Buddha himself meditated and taught others to as well)  in the context of the Buddhas essential teachings.  It shows, for example, why an ethical commitment is as important as meditation for meaningful spiritual development, making this a powerful, life-changing discipline.
