Description - Quiet Mind by Susan Piver

A growing body of scientific research is showing that meditation can reduce stress, improve mental performance, and make us happier. For those who are curious about meditation and would like to give it a try, "Quiet Mind" is a great place to begin. This unique book-and-audio program brings together six of the most respected Buddhist teachers in America, each known for presenting meditation in practical, accessible and inspiring ways. Each teacher offers a short written teaching along with an audio recording of a guided meditation practice from his or her Buddhist tradition - including Tibetan Buddhism, Zen, and Vipassana (or Insight Meditation).An additional section presents yoga poses and stretches useful for meditation practitioners. Contributors include: Sakyong Mipham on shamatha, the practice of tranquillity; Larry Rosenberg on vipassana, the practice of clear seeing; Ed Espe Brown on zazen, the practice of freedom; Sharon Salzberg on metta, the practice of compassion; Judith Lief on tonglen, the practice of transformation; Tulku Thondup on using meditation to heal the body and mind, and Richard Faulds on yoga and meditation.
