Excellent meditation primer

I've heard James Finley speak in person and I've read a number of Fr. Keating's books on meditation. Finley's comments dovetail nicely with Fr. Keating's suggestions and provide a good template for beginning and advanced meditation. Finley's tutelage by Fr. Thomas Merton adds credibility to his concepts. Finley speaks clearly and succinctly in this book with good pace that allows for absorption and comprehension of his material.

Profound yet approachable

I'm lucky to hear Jim Finley speak regularly, and am thrilled that others now have access to his teachings. He makes the meditative, contemplative tradition approachable to everyone, whether you have experience with meditation or not. I've listened to the set (especially the last piece, on Compassion) repeatedly and hear something new each time. Like many other teachers, when recorded he's less spontaneous than in person, but still vibrant and profound.
