    Beautiful! Elegantly simple and on the mark.

    This is truly a remarkable book about a subject that is too often regarded as esoteric or inaccessible. I personally believe that if all people meditated our differences would shrink in importance and our connections would stabilize. It would be a more peaceful, a more positive, and a more productive world. This book is a meaningful element towards such a world. Lang makes the subject easily accessible. The writing is clear, concise, and exquisite in its simplicity. It is a perceptive and loving insight into what we as humans can be at our best.
