IT BEGINS WITH SILENCE Stephen Schettini

Is it really possible to find peace and happiness in our increasingly negative, dysfunctional world? Is the calm insight of meditation compatible with the hectic lifestyle of consumer culture? In this intimate, beautifully illustrated and accessible book, Stephen Schettini, meditation teacher, former Buddhist monk and author of The Novice combines story, verse and commentary to shine a three-dimensional spotlight on the teachings of the historical Buddha, revealing their power to ease the fragmenting stresses of the twenty-first century. The key is mindful reflection not just living in the present moment but opening to others with a whole-life attitude of self-discovery. By integrating mindful reflection into your life, you learn to map the continuous changes in all you know and the consciousness with which you know it. Here in heartfelt, everyday language is the ancient middle way to peace and balance These daily practices lead you beyond conventional thinking to the root of your conscious and unconscious responses to pain, fear, anxiety and stress. They train you to let go of cyclic mental habits and direct your potential for change towards what the Buddha called awakening a permanent letting-go. This landmark book dispels the mystique of meditation and returns it to its rightful place in the daily life of ordinary men and women.
