DESCRIPTION

Awards and Acknowledgements:

  • Library Journal's Best Books of 2013 selection

From Pema Chödrön, her first in-depth how-to meditation book for creating and enjoying a fulfilling practice
 
Pema Chödrön is celebrated worldwide for her ability to transmit teachings that awaken peace, understanding, and compassion into our lives. With How to Meditate, the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun offers us a complete guide to exploring the essentials for a lifelong practice. 
 
More and more of us are beginning to recognize a deep inner longing for authenticity, connection, and aliveness. Meditation, Pema explains, gives us a golden key to address this yearning. Here, she shows us how to meet and relate with our minds, embrace the fullness of all experience, and live in a wholehearted way. Join her to discover:

  • The basics of meditation, from getting settled and the six points of posture to working with the breath and cultivating an attitude of "unconditional friendliness"
  • The Seven Delights—how moments of difficulty can open 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”—not obstacles—in meditation
“The ultimate reason why we practice is so that we can become completely loving people.
And this is what the world needs,” writes Pema. How to Meditate provides us with a perfect way to begin that journey.
