Format: Paperback
There is something really wonderful with the way that the author looks into difficult questions without preconceptions or ready made answers. Free from form with aware presence, questions about self and other, listening and seeing, question and questioning, effort, anger, trust etc. etc. are looked into together with students and others people that have worked with the author on these things in one way or another. For anyone who practices mindfulness and meditation or is just interested in living more fully, here and now in the present moment this is great book!

This is not a book of answers 13 Jan. 2009
By jfpessoa - Published on
Format: Paperback
I feel there is a lot to be gained from reading this book - slowly, and then sometime later having a go at it again. However, it will probably be very off-putting in the extreme to people seeking answers, most especially "spiritual" answers. Toni Packer doesn't give any. The book is about listening and questioning. If a person is willing to start there, which for most of us means starting all over again, then I would say that it would be a wise purchase. If you want at the end of the book to close it, having found The Answer or Answers, it will be an unsatisfactory purchase.

something real in a universe of frauds 3 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
just thinking about "pushing your own barrow", like its only half, you need to be aware of how instrumental it is with others or you get slaughtered. Religious(or similar) groups seem to utilise this "self kneecapping" in ways that are quite destructive to individuals.....i guess this is illustrative.
well, i took a lot from the book, its slow reading, needs to be worked through, nothing is perfect, subtle flaws will be imbibed along with the sense, but that appears to be par for the course in this game, everyone has ten years to spare...
