Reflective Meditation Reviews
From considerations of Buddhist concepts of vulnerability and suffering to how meditators grapple with challenging characteristics of existence and experience, Linda Modaro and Nelly Kaufer craft a dialogue of possibilities that ultimately transcends much of the average reader’s concepts of what meditative practices can reveal…The dialogue portion of the practice is just as essential for understanding and success as the meditative process itself. Conversations about experience, intention, mindfulness, and more permeate insights about the bigger-picture thinking meditation can unfold in a dance of mental origami.
You may discover, as I did, a gentler, kinder and more ethically integrated doorway into the heart of the Middle Way.
You are invited into the room as two dharma friends, highly accomplished meditation teachers, engage in intimately reflective conversations on topics such as power, feminism, and the many causes and conditions of their lives.
How do you share your experience of meditation? Linda and Nelly share their personal journey of meditation and offer ways to relate that completely fit in everyday life.
