A Review of Rick Heller’s ‘Secular Meditation’
Sylvie Vanasse, a member of the Beaches Sangha in Australia, discusses the different secular meditation practices in Rick Heller’s book. She praises Heller for offering many practical exercises and his avoidance of supernatural jargon, but thinks that his insistence on the need to ‘quiet our mind’ minimizes the value of a recollective or reflective approach to meditation.
