The record of a day of meditation instruction with spirited questions from a rationally-minded audience, MIND SCIENCE achieves what most books on meditation rarely do: It's actually fun to read, and it imparts much useful information without religious or mystical overtones. This is a book that's focused on the practical applications of meditation in everyday life, not how to become a rare and special "spiritual" being by way of hours spent sitting motionless on a pillow.
Bringing a great deal of knowledge to bear on the subject while not pretending to be a guru, Dr. Charles Tart tackles real questions that come up in meditation practice, such as: How do you keep your mind from wandering? What do you do about sensations of pain during sitting? How do you deal with too much thinking? and many more. And he answers them with common sense, care, and compassion.
