Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Be An Island is at once an introduction to the teachings of Buddhism and a rich continuation of Ayya Khema's personal vision of Buddhist practice. The best-selling author of Being Nobody, Going Nowhere once again guides us along the path of Buddhist meditation with direct and practical advice, giving us the contemplative tools to develop a healthy and fit sense of personal being. Basing her teachings firmly on the words of the Buddha, Ayya Khema introduces techniques for positive and negative emotions, for mindfulness practice, and for living well with others.
