Rich with lucid instructions and practical insights, Mind Science dispels the metaphysical haze that all too often surrounds the subject of meditation. Based on a lively workshop with fellow scientists, this book shows how the pragmatic and scientifically-inclined among us can bring mindfulness into everyday life without religious baggage, while clearly explaining its many spiritual and health benefits. This concise yet densely informative book includes many question-and-answer exchanges between students and teacher, clarifying many of the puzzles and quandaries that meditation practice presents to beginners.
