Mind Science: Meditation Training for Practical People

by Charles T. Tart, Ph.D.

Rich with lucid instructions and practical insights, Mind Science dispels the metaphysical haze that all too often surrounds the subject of meditation. Based on a lively workshop with fellow scientists, Charles Tart shows how the pragmatic and scientifically-inclined among us can bring mindfulness into everyday life without religious baggage -- while clearly explaining its many spiritual and health benefits.
These highly interactive and often witty sessions in front of a skeptical audience anticipate the questions that any practical person might have about meditative mindfulness. If you’ve been looking for a clear teaching on how and why to meditate that is free of sectarian involvement, this is the book for you.

Mind Science is based on a workshop at the country’s leading scientific conference on the study of consciousness, held bi-annually at the University of Arizona at Tucson. Tart’s jovial and wide-ranging style makes Mind Science suitable reading for intelligent lay people with a practical and scientific inclination, as well as the academically- and scientifically-trained students of consciousness and related fields. Mind Science is, in fact, the only current book on meditation by an author who is
also a well-respected scientist.
"Recommended as an excellent introduction to meditation... especially valuable for people who are not already on a spiritual path, and who would be put off by spiritual language or metaphysical assumptions."

--Roger Walsh, Ph.D., author of Essential Spirituality
