Publisher's Summary

This modern spiritual classic, presented as a 30-day meditation retreat taught by Joseph Goldstein, offers timeless practical instructions and real-world advice for practicing meditation - whether walking or sitting in formal practice or engaging in everyday life. 

Goldstein - a beloved and respected meditation teacher who studied for many years under the guidance of eminent Buddhist teachers from India, Tibet, and Burma - uses the retreat format to explain various basic Buddhist teachings including karma, selflessness, and the four noble truths, while also drawing connections to many different spiritual traditions. 

With a new preface reflecting on how the conversation around meditation has changed over the last 40 years, this book is the perfect companion for both experienced practitioners and those looking to get into meditation for the first time.

Critic Reviews

"Many of us seek the deeper, purer, more esoteric teachings...thus, there is an increasing demand for meditation training both as a means and an end. This book is a blessing...a highly significant contribution to our growth at this time." (from the introduction by Ram Dass)

So Good

I loved this. I read this years ago and to hear it with the powerful voice of the narrator is a great experience. Highly recommend.

Deep and Chilling!

Thank you, Joseph Goldstein. This has been a very eye-opening dharma journey. Although, I struggle a lot keeping up on my spiritual path, I know that the only way is to keep up with the daily practice.
