It is all too easy either to think obsessively, or to not think enough. But how do we think usefully? How do we reflect? Like any art, reflection can be learnt and developed, leading to a deeper understanding of life and to the fullness of wisdom. Drawing on his own experience and on Buddhist teachings, Western philosophy, psychology and literature, Ratnaguna provides a practical guide to reflection in its many forms. This is a book about reflection as spiritual practice, about its importance, about "what we think and how we think about it". It is a book about contemplation and insight, and reflection as a way to discover the truth.

`This is a gem of a book that can be savoured and will enlighten.' Professor Paul Gilbert, author of The Compassionate Mind; `No-one who takes seriously the study and practice of the Dharma should fail to read this ground-breaking book.' Urgyen Sangharakshita, founder of the Triratna Buddhist Community; `The Art of Reflection will give teachers insight into Buddhist practice. Even more importantly, it may help to develop the ability to engage in deeper personal and professional reflection.' Joyce Miller, RE Today
