    A lot of good ideas, I would have liked more of the science. I will probably buy a copy of the audiobook since it has nice meditations lead by the author. I have some concerns that this rides the line of sudo science. ...

    This book was full of great metaphor examples that helped make understanding concepts easy. It got pretty heady at times but still remained clear cut and easy to follow. The whole thing was very insightful. Occasionally you might have to take a step back when things get heady/technical...

    I read this book, like all my meditation books, with a pencil in hand. I had to sharpen my pencil over and over again because I underlined so many great lines, explanations, definitions, and concepts. I am entirely impressed with how seemingly effortlessly RDLR explains complex encount...

    Before reading this book, I?d given up on meditation because I couldn?t clear my mind of flitting thoughts that seemed like correction gurus. Now I understand those thoughts are loyal carriers wanting me to hear their important messages. They are all about my best interest and surv...

    Excellent book! I have to admit, it took me a long time to read it because it made me uncomfortable at times, but you don't grow as a person in comfort. I opened my mind, powered through, and I loved it. The beginning is well-suited for anyone, at any level of meditation, and the middl...

    I enjoyed the fact that intention & breathwork were both featured . In my 20?s , I had panic attacks and breathwork got me through them. We could all stand to embrace a bit more intentional calm in our life,this book is a good guide towards how to accomplish that. ...
