Good nuts n' bolts basics of mindfulness work

I found this book very helpful in working with the development and practice of mindfulness. I find it particularly useful in Tart's blending of Buddhist mindfulness practice with the more rigorous Gurdjieffian practices of self-remembering and self-observation. He utilizes a question and extended answer format in parts of the book to take apart these practices in a useful, day to daymanner, answering questions on difficulties one is likely to encounter. Personally, I find the buddhist-type practices of mindfully washing the dishes (doesn't anyone have dishwashers?) too romantically spiritual, while the Gurdjieffian practices seem much more attuned to everything in one's life. Overall, an excellent book for those on the path of awakening---covering what I consider to be a fundamental process for anyone on the path--it's too easy to fall into practices/beliefs which sink you deeper into illusion, all the while deluding yourself that you're really making progress.
