Meditation Works: In the Hindu, Buddhist, and Daoist Traditions

Based on extensive cultural studies and long years of practice, Livia Kohn here creates a new typology of meditation based on six distinct ways of accessing the subconscious. In a special chapter on each type, she outlines the physiology, world view, and traditional practice as well as its modern medical adaptations and organizational settings. Providing a thorough theoretical framework combined with a comprehensive, analytical overview and extensive practical applications, the book greatly advances our understanding of meditation.
