Brain Training with the Buddha
A Modern Path to Insight Based on the Ancient Foundations of Mindfulness
The essential guide to training your brain for mindfulness—modern, science-based, and with no Buddhism required.
Publisher’s note: Brain Training with the Buddha was previously published in hardcover as The Foundations of Mindfulness.
Lifelong meditation teacher Eric Harrison intimately understands the benefits of mindfulness, from improved focus and better judgment to relaxation and inner peace. He’s helped tens of thousands of students to achieve these goals by rooting his practice in the Buddha’s original text on how to meditate and live mindfully: the Satipatthana Sutta.
Brain Training with the Buddha offers a secular perspective on this ancient wisdom that requires no familiarity with Buddhism itself—only openness to the Buddha’s original teachings. Harrison’s translation of this sutta (the first in modern English) comes with guidance for anyone looking to train their mind by applying its thirteen steps to mindful living today.
