These eight essays explore the interface between psychiatry, science, and the timeless teachings of the Buddha. Drawn from the personal experiences of a therapist and practitioner of Vipassana meditation, this work explores meditation's similarities and differences with psychotherapeutic and scientific endeavors. In the title essay, parallels are drawn between the atomic synthesis of free choice and lawful consequence in Chaos Theory and karma, offering contemporary insights into one of Buddhism's core concepts. The empirical roots of meditation, its relevance to daily life, and the challenges and benefits of daily practice of Vipassana meditation are also addressed. Practical examples for continued observation outside of formal meditation retreats guide readers in incorporating Buddhist practice into daily life.

Industry Reviews

"This is a superb little book, a mature and beautiful flower from one of the past century's truly important developments, the reseeding of the Buddha's ancient teaching in a western and global context." --Philip Novak, Ph.D., author, The World's Wisdom "This small but packed-with-information book will provoke, inspire and illuminate; of that I have no doubt." --Dale Salwak, Ph.D., author, The Wonders of Solitude and The Power of Prayer
