Austin, James, MD '47

Meditating Selflessly: Practical Neural Zen
Author: James Austin, M.D. '47
Publisher: MIT Press; Pub. Date: October 2011; Hardcover
Subject: Non-Fiction; Eastern Philosophy

"This is not the usual kind of self-help book. Indeed, its major premise heeds a Zen master's advice to be less self-centered. Yes, it is 'one more book of words about Zen,' as the author concedes, yet this book explains meditative practices from the perspective of a 'neural Zen.' The latest findings in brain research inform its suggestions. In Meditating Selflessly, James Austin--Zen practitioner, neurologist, and author of three acclaimed books on Zen and neuroscience--guides readers toward that open awareness already awaiting them on the cushion and in the natural world...Drawing widely from the exciting new field of contemplative neuroscience, Austin helps resolve an ancient paradox: why both insight wisdom and selflessness arise simultaneously during enlightened states of consciousness.”—publisher description
