With his distinctive clarity and wit, "Bhante G" takes us step by step through the myths, realities, and benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness.

This book helped bring it all into perspective for me and move me along in a developmental process that had been stalled. It helped me slow down my expectations and helped me see that I am enough.

This excellent guide approaches vipassana meditation from a secular and psychological point of view. The writing is clear and strong; the information is illuminating and affirming. I have found it a wonderful support in letting go of ego and illusion.
