Join us on Saturday, April 13th at 6:00 p.m. as Susan Piver reads and discusses her book Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation.
If you want to meditate but have no idea where to begin, this concise, jargon-free guide by best-selling author and Buddhist teacher Susan Piver will help you learn what Buddhist meditation is—and isn’t—with advice on how to start a meditation practice.
“Reading this book is like sitting down with your most brilliant, clever, fun friend and having them explain the vast world of meditation to you in a way that you can clearly understand. This isn’t just a how-to book; this is a how to apply meditation to your life book. If you think you are the one person who could never meditate, read this book and it will prove you wrong.”—Lodro Rinzler, author of The Buddha Walks into a Bar
