Want to sort out your mind, throw out the clutter, be happier, saner, more yourself? No, this ain’t a pharmaceutical commercial…it actually is possible to wake up, ’cause our basic nature is basically sane. It’s just that all that stress and confusion, like clouds in the sky, has gone done and effed our perception of reality up. So buy ZEN MIND, BEGINNER’S MIND or MEDITATION IN ACTION or WISDOM OF NO ESCAPE (my introductory fave, by Pema Chödron) and get yourself on a cushion. We recommend Samadhi, the first and old-school favorite made at Karme Chöling in Vermont, or Dharma Crafts, eco lovely quality made by good people in Massachusetts, or the newer Boulder-based eco company, Zafu Designs.
