Insight Meditation: The Practice of Freedom

A pioneer of Buddhist meditation and mindfulness practice in the west, it is not an understatement to say that Joseph Goldstein has catalyzed several generations of meditators in the west. “Insight Meditation: The Practice Of Freedom” is one of Joseph’s early books that covers topics as basic as why and how we practice, the Buddhist teachings of “Non-Self” and “Karma, the Psychology of the Dharma, and the ultimate practice of how we bring our awakening into to the world. I wholeheartedly recommend “Insight Meditation: A Practice Of Freedom” to anyone who has a serious calling to awaken.

Though having only met him briefly, I feel that I have spent many a sitting hours with Joseph Goldstein through the wisdom he shares in his books. A companion early on my path his books have guided me through my “kick-start” years with daily practice and his inspiration took me further into the depths of meditation on intensive vipassana retreats. His inspiration encouraged me on the “path lass traveled” and has indeed, made all the difference.
