This is a short guide to meditation through practical exercises. Step by step, a carefully selected series of concentration exercises, sentence meditations, visualisations and perceptual meditations guide the reader along, leading them into a full experience of both the 'I' (or Self) and to an understanding of human attention.

Georg Kühlewind has based this book on over thirty years of experience and teaching of meditation.


'This concise little book summarizes forty years of research on the nature and power of human attention. In a direct style, as though thinking out loud, Kühlewind shares a sequence of original exercises of his own devising and offers practical tips on technique, embedding it all in characteristically succinct epistemological remarks. I recommend this generous, instructive book to anyone who wants to begin meditating and also to those who want to refresh their existing practice.'
-- Gertrude Reif Hughes, Professor Emerita of English and Women's Studies at Wesleyan University
