Description

An Essential Addition to Mindfulness Literature

Who among us does not want to discern right from wrong and useful from useless in any situation?

Thirty years ago--long before the modern mindfulness movement--Eric Harrison began teaching meditation as a secular, science-based therapy. Paradoxically, he rooted his practice in the Buddha's original teaching: the Satipatthana Sutta.

The 13 steps in the Sutta offer readers the full benefits of mindfulness: attention, good judgment, and tranquility. Now--informed by a lifetime spent teaching tens of thousands to meditate--Harrison offers both a new translation of the Sutta (the first in modern English) and lucid guidance on how to apply it today.
