Overview

Freedom from suffering is not only possible, but the means for achieving it are immediately within our grasp—literally as close to us as our own breath.

In this book, Larry Rosenberg brings this timeless meditation method to life. Using the insights gained from his many years of practice and teaching, he makes insight meditation practice accessible to modern practitioners.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rosenberg illuminates this meditative path in clear enlivened writing. A guide worthy of consulting many times."— ForeWord

"A book of delicious simplicity and revolutionary wisdom. These are some of the clearest teachings on mindfulness you will find."—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart

"Reading this book is like having a warm, wise friend take you by the hand to guide you through the Buddha's classical instructions, making them truly accessible. It is a treasure for both beginning and advanced students."—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Faith

Howard Rheingold
The essence of meditation on the breath as set forth by Buddha 2500 years ago enabled me to break the typical habit of getting attached to a negative emotion and replaying it over and over. Remembering to live in the present, and refrain from getting attached to transitory phenomena like our thoughts, emotions, and bodies. This technique works, and this book is the best explanation I've found about why and how it works.
