Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-written book I have been studying this book, a chapter a month, with a group of friends, and we have all found it to be extremely clear and full of pertinent examples of the different "practices" she discusses in each chapter, i.e., the practice of getting lost, etc. The questions that can be found at another website are also very helpful to use in conjunction with the book.
