"Now repackaged, Matt Flickstein's universal meditator's guide should finally find the audience it deserves. Indeed, the book truly is an invaluable roadmap for anyone who meditates. It's based on an ancient and absolutely essential text. (The text is called the Path of Purification - but you don't need to know that, and neither do readers, to get the benefits of Flickstein's in-depth knowledge of its teachings!) All readers need to know is that Flickstein's is an up-to-the-minute approach to what the Buddha himself taught about meditation, put in the plainest of Plain-English terms (hence the enthusiastic foreword by Mindfulness in Plain English author, Bhante Henepola Gunaratana). Flickstein's words are encouraging; meditation's benefits are, after all, for everyone, and the author in turns writes for everyone. Matthew Flickstein is a psychotherapist, meditation teacher and the founder of The Forest Way Insight Meditation Center in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. In twenty years of leading personal development workshops, he has trained almost 15,000 people across the U.S., including other teachers."Flickstein, Matthew is the author of 'Meditator's Atlas A Roadmap of the Inner World', published 2007 under ISBN 9780861713370 and ISBN 0861713370.
