In this complete course created especially for beginners, teacher Jack Kornfield offers a straightforward, step-by-step method for bringing the fruits of insight meditation into your life. Using the six guided meditations on the included CD, readers will discover how to use the breath, physical sensations-and even difficult emotions-to create tranquility and lovingkindness in everyday life
