The practitioner has different possibilities to reach his goal. Besides the daily practice of meditation, the role of withdrawals (retreats) and the role of so-called meditation days are explained. Particular attention is paid to the development of personal creativity and meditation workshops. As the book presents a very specific topic, it will be difficult for the reader to get a picture of it in advance. However, it is comparable with the book “The Zen of Archery" by Eugen Herrigel.
