This is not the usual kind of self-help book. Indeed, its major premise heeds a Zenmaster's advice to be less self-centered. Yes, it is "one more book of wordsabout Zen," as the author concedes, yet this book explains meditative practices from theperspective of a " neural Zen." The latest findings in brain researchinform its suggestions. In Meditating Selflessly, James Austin -- Zenpractitioner, neurologist, and author of three acclaimed books on Zen and neuroscience -- guidesreaders toward that open awareness already awaiting them on the cushion and in the naturalworld.

Austin offers concrete advice -- often in a simplified question-and-answerformat -- about different ways to meditate. He clarifies both the concentrative and receptive stylesof meditation. Drawing widely from the exciting new field of contemplative neuroscience, Austinhelps resolve an ancient paradox: why both insight wisdom and selflessness arisesimultaneously during enlightened states of consciousness.
