The Contemplative Practitioner by John Miller

By practicing different types of meditation, teachers, students, or employees can gain personal strength and character. Miller describes the techniques of meditation taught in the great world religions and shows how they can be adapted to student and professional life. He describes the lives of five great contemplatives—Buddha, St. Teresa, Merton, Gandhi, and Emerson—and relates their spiritual practices, doubts and tests to the individual growth of ordinary students and citizens.
