The Meditator's Atlas

A Roadmap to the Inner World

The Meditator's Atlas

Foreword by: Henepola Gunaratana
Meditation can seem a mystery. Where do you begin? Where will you end up? What might you find along the way?

You'll find the answers in The Meditator's Atlas, a comprehensive and trustworthy "roadmap of the inner world" for anyone who meditates. Respected teacher Matthew Flickstein is your friendly guide, explaining what meditation is, how to do it, and how to make the skills and benefits that it engenders your own, including:
  • finding work that supports your priorities
  • overcoming doubt
  • cultivating helpful attitudes
  • incorporating mindfulness into every aspect of your life
  • and how all of this adds up to a happier life.

What makes this book unique is the way Flickstein uses two classic Buddhist texts--the Path of Purification, and the Four Foundations of Mindfulness--to help readers make clear sense out of the new, fascinating, and sometimes even frightening states that one may encounter on the long journey to enlightenment. Readers will come away from this book with their own insights clarified and with a helpful sense of what lies ahead.
