A Simple Manual That Really Works

Knowing that most people do not stop their lives to engage in spiritual practice, Buddhist teacher Andrew Weiss has always taught the direct application of practice to daily life. While also teaching sitting and walking meditation, he emphasizes mindfulness — the practice of seeing every action as an opportunity to awaken meditative inquiry. Over the years, Andrew has honed his teachings into an effective ten-week course with progressive steps and home-play assignments. Beginning Mindfulness is intended for anyone practicing in daily life without the luxury of long meditation retreats. Weiss skillfully blends the traditions of his teachers into an easy and humorous program of learning the Buddhist art of mindfulness.

Synopsis:

As a teacher of meditation, Andrew Weiss found that students responded best when he broke down the process of mindfulness into discrete and progressive steps. Knowing that most people had little time to devote to meditation, he also made it his priority to teach the direct application of mindfulness to daily life. Through the years, he developed a series of handouts based on simple steps that form the basis of this book. Intended for laypeople practicing in their work and family lives without the luxury of long meditation retreats, Beginning Mindfulness is deeply rooted in Buddhist practice but remains unbound by one particular Buddhist tradition. Weiss skillfully blends the traditions of his Korean and Vietnamese teachers as well as Hindu yogic methods to create a meditation manual that is both practical and inspiring.

Synopsis:

The author makes Eastern meditation practices accessible, sharing his insights into mindfulness, purity, and grief, showing readers how to become mindful by following his simple steps. Original.

Synopsis:

Like Jon Kabat-Zinns Wherever You Go, There You Are, Beginning Mindfulness is intended for laypeople practicing in their work and family lives without the luxury of long meditation retreats. It is deeply rooted in Buddhist practice but remains unbound by one particular Buddhist tradition. Weiss skillfully blends the traditions of his teachers: that of Korean Zen Master Seung Sanh, Vietnamese Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, insight meditation or vipassana, as well as the Hindu yogic tradition. An easy, doable program of learning to practice the Buddhist art of mindfulness, Beginning Mindfulness is, as one psychologist who uses the manual with her groups put it, "a simple manual that really works."
