    Buddha's Book of Meditation: Mindfulness Practices for a Quieter Mind

    in Spirituality

    Buddha's Book of Meditation: Mindfulness Practices for a Quieter Mind with Joseph Emet


    Mindfulness meditation is an increasingly popular form of an ancient and powerful technique for reducing stress, elevating one’s mental state, and improving the practitioner’s overall quality of life. Award-winning author and mindfulness meditation teacher Joseph Emet now takes you down a step-by-step path to integrate this potent form of meditation into your daily life.

    Offering tips, techniques, and practices from mindfulness meditation—coupled with stories from the author’s life as a teacher—Buddha's Book of Meditation guides you to a life teeming with the benefits of regular meditation practice. This volume also includes original music by the author that the reader can access through their device or the web—calming the mind and enhancing the meditation experience.


    Joseph started the Mindfulness Meditation Centre in 1997, because he had found the practice of mindfulness very helpful in his own life, and wanted to share it with others. On January 14, 2003, he was invited by Thich Nhat Hanh to receive the Lamp Transmission as a Dharma teacher. His Dharma name is Dwelling in Peaceful Concentration. He has been trying to live up to that name ever since. Joseph has trained several thousand people in mindfulness practices in large and small groups, for organizations, and in private sessions.


    Joseph holds a Doctorate in Music from Boston University. He has been certified in Reality Therapy Counselling with Dr. William Glasser, and has been a Fulbright scholar. He has been a long time T’ai Chi practitioner with Master Lee Shiu Pak, one of the original Yang school students.

    Painting Your Life Masterpiece with Mindfulness Meditation

    in Spirituality

    If life is a blank canvas waiting for us to paint our vision, ever wonder why so many of us have not yet painted our masterpiece?  It may be that we have not given our life the proper focus to align the energy of change - to draw forth that next level of vibrational frequency that lifts us higher into the realm of thought fulfilling experience.  We know it's possible; we may have even exercised this gift before.  Yet the question is:  "How do we remain consistent?"  Mindfulness meditation is an entry into that portal.  Our guest, Charles A. Francis, will explain how through simple and constant practice, we can gloriously paint the canvas that is our life.


    Charles A. Francis, is the co-founder and director of the Mindfulness Meditation Institute. He has studied the practice of mindfulness with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. For over 18 years, he has worked to help people find inner peace through mindfulness meditation.
