Full Catastrophe Living

Type: 
Book
Description: 

It's an excellent start on meditation. I'm looking at the fifteenth Anniversary Edition, so this book has been around for some time. Also this book is not a religious book, and it gives a lot of context to meditation, which can be useful. But more, it will get you going.
