Meditation for Life offers thoughtful insight into the world of meditation. Although written mainly for beginners, even the most experienced practitioners of meditation will enjoy Martine Batchelor's simple yet powerful words.
Martine goes beyond the simple aspects of normal meditation and teaches us how the same techniques can apply to other parts of our life, such as having a conversation with someone or cooking.
Through-out this beautifully bound book we can appreciate Stephen Batchelor's eye-catching photography, from a simple close-up of tree bark to an intriguing contrasted photograph of a monk crossing a bridge. Stephen's unique brand of photography highlights the overall tone of the book, namely one of enquiry and exploration.
I had the pleasure of meeting both Martine and Stephen Batchelor at a Buddhist conference in New York, and purchased this book hoping that it would emit the same sense of energy and curiousness that they radiated and I was not disappointed.
All in all, a wonderful book with captivating photography. Well worth the purchase.
