Train your mind for tranquility and focus with this fresh, secular guide to mindfulness using the Buddha’s original teachings Eric Harrison is not a Buddhist—nor is he even religious. But his lifelong mindfulness practice is rooted in the Satipatthana Sutta—the Buddha’s original text on how to meditate. Harrison realized that the clearly defined steps in the sutta, even without their spiritual context, amount to a brain-training program anyone can follow. As the Buddha puts it: “The systematic four-stage training of attention is the only way to Enlightenment.” Now—informed by a lifetime spent teaching tens of thousands to meditate—Harrison offers an updated, modern English translation of the sutta and lucid guidance on how to apply it. This accessible work is for anyone interested in their mind, body, and life overall—no background in Buddhism required.
