This month the Weber Center Shop is featuring a book recommended by Sister Esther Kennedy, OP, who leads the monthly “Days of Mindfulness” events at Weber Center.

The book she recommends is called “Mindfulness in Plain English” by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, a Buddhist monk who founded a monastery and retreat center in West Virginia in 1985. The book has been praised by many, including fellow mindfulness author Jon Kabat-Zinn, who calls it “a masterpiece.” Pick up your copy at the Weber Shop for $17.95.

From the publisher:

The bestselling, classic guide to insight meditation is a book that people give to everyone they know — a book that people talk about, write about, think about, and return to repeatedly.

With his distinctive clarity and wit, “Bhante G” takes us step by step through the myths, realities, and benefits of meditation and the practice of mindfulness. We already have the foundation we need to live a more productive and peaceful life — Bhante simply points to each tool of meditation, tells us what it does, and how to make it work.

This expanded edition includes the complete text of its bestselling predecessor, as well as a new chapter on the cultivation of lovingkindness, an especially important subject in today’s fractious world.
