I was introduced to the works of Alan Watts by a meditation teacher about three years ago. Since then, I have been interested in mysticism, cognition, Buddhism, and scientism. Don’t ask me why, but these subjects just captivate me. I have been reading the works of various authors such as Douglas Hofstadter, Thich Nhat Hanh, Joseph Campbell, Stuart Kauffman, Francisco Varela, and Jiddu Krishnamurti; but what am I trying to learn; WHY?

I was introduced to meditation in a college class on the subject. The teacher recommended The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation, by Thich Nhat Hanh. This book provides the reader with a wonderful way to start a meditation practice.
Thich Nhat Hanh stands as a foundation for peace in the world today. His book, The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation should be read by all people interested in the teachings of the Buddha. The book provides a detailed description of many concepts central to Buddhism.
