Rate this:
Jennifer Howd had been building a mindfulness practice for a few years before taking on the challenge of her first nine-day silent meditation retreat. In this debut memoir, she chronicles the humorous--and often harrowing--adventures of the dueling inner voices that emerge in the silence- one intent on focusing on the seemingly negative aspects of her experiences, and the other on helping her see the positivity that can come from them. Illuminating for those who are new to mindfulness and resonant for those with established practices, Sit, Walk, Don't Talk- How I Survived a Silent Meditation Retreat also includes a section for undertaking a silent retreat without leaving home along with a helpful appendix listing resources that readers can turn toward when exploring mindfulness in general. Sit, Walk, Don't Talk ais written from a secular perspective and will appeal to folks who've never attended a residential retreat but are curious about the experience and want to get a taste of what to expect before possibly taking the plunge. Practitioners who dream of going on retreat but cannot make the time will also get alot out of Howd's story, as well as folks who've been on many retreats and want to recapture the feeling without leaving home.
