This collection of teachings contains the talks, questions and answers, and guided meditations of the old students' special retreat, taught at Wat Kow Tahm International Meditation Center, Koh Pah-ngan, Thailand, and at retreat centers in Germany and Australia.
To anyone who has not practiced with Rosemary and Steve Weissman before, please consider the following caution. Although much of the teachings here will prove beneficial for any sincere spiritual practitioner, it would help the listener to be familiar with the style and emphasis that Steve and Rosemary use in their teachings. If you have not done a retreat with them, then it could be of benefit to first read their other books which cover the regular 9-day retreat: ...with Compassionate Understanding , a basic collection of the 9-day talks; and/or Meditation, Compassion & Lovingkindness , a collection of selected teachings from the 9-day retreat. They are also available in other languages. Please visit our website for more information.
Please note: as the English language does not have a gender-neutral term for the third-person singular, at times the word "they," is used, rather than "he" or "she."
It is sincerely wished that these teachings will be of much benefit for you, and that you will be able to share this benefit with others. May we all grow in Peace, Compassion, Love, Understanding, Joy and Equanimity.
