Interesting information but not a good fit for me
on September 29, 2012
First, any potential buyer should be aware that the second half is a listing of groups and retreat locations. To me, that sort of material is better found online, since it is only using the info provided by the groups (rather than being an author review).
The first half of the book gave me some good "aha" moments when it helped to explain the different types of meditation as well as how movement and yoga can be integrated. I really found it worthwhile to read. That said, it did not have the warmth and humor (and humanness, perhaps?) of some of the others I have read. At times, I felt that the author was providing a guide way beyond my present goals -- sort of like describing how to compete in Olympic swimming to someone who is just learning how to swim.
