Beginning a meditation practice may seem like a daunting task. Making time to sit and be still, although simple to do, is not easy to take up and maintain, especially in our fast-paced society. In Your Life IS Meditation, Mark Van Buren shows how meditation is not only limited to the seated practice but is actually a new way of being and relating to yourself and your life. It's not a practice you do, but rather one you become. Meditation is the catalyst to relating directly, honestly, and openly to each moment of your life--pleasant or not--and with the stories and reflections in this book, Mark will show you, from his years of Buddhist-inspired practice, how every aspect of your life can be used as fertile soil to cultivate wisdom, compassion, kindness, and most importantly, humor.
