While this really is an outline with practical instructions for a 3-day retreat, including Eating Meditation and Walking Meditation, the format is bite-sized and her kind + gentle voice and stories are ever so encouraging whether you’re on retreat, sitting daily or coming back from a sitting-hiatus. Every chapter is relevant to your sitting and mindfulness practices on or off retreat. Her experience is real, as if she’s right there sitting-along with you. I use this book when I go on self-led silent retreats and it is instructive and supportive.
