Discover extraordinary mindfulness through whole-body Vipassana meditation

Beyond the Breath is one of the first books to give a complete overview and description of sensation based vipassana meditation—the form of mediation believed to have been used by the Buddha 2,500 years ago.

Vipassana meditation provides a practical method of self-awareness, allowing us to fave difficulties in a calm and relaxed way. By concentrating on the body's sensations, one comes to see the inherently fleeting nature of our feelings and experience—opening the door to genuine, lasting peace of mind.

M.Glickman's approach is unique—he takes a mediation practice deeply rooted within a historic Buddhist framework, and gives it a modern-day, scientific spin—he presents sensation based vipassana meditation and Buddhist principles in 20th-century language, secularizing ideas that may sound exotic, off-putting, or out-dated. Glickman's passion for the topic, as well as his great understanding of Buddhist concepts, make this an inspiring read.
