The Mind Illuminated by John Yates
Without a doubt, John Yates’s book, “The Mind Illuminated“, is an essential modern road map and guide for meditation. The book integrates meditation traditions, wisdom, and brain science creating a comprehensive but user-friendly companion.
To live life consciously and creatively as a work of art, we need to understand the raw material we have to work with. This is nothing other than the continuously unfolding stream of conscious experience that is our life.
Whether we’re awake or dreaming, this stream of consciousness consists of sensations, thoughts, emotions, and the choices we make in response to them.
I own this book in its audio version and it has ‘accompanied’ me on many long journeys. This is a terrific guide on the journey into mental health and holistic well-being.
John Yates shares a complex path into meditative understandings and practices in a straight-forward manner. It is both rational and intuitive partner in deepening our conscious awareness of our place in the world.
This is a must, must read! Full Book Talk is in post, “The Mind Illuminated” as a Complete Meditation Guide.
