Beginning Mindfulness

by Andrew Weiss

As a teacher of meditation, Andrew Weiss found that students responded best when he broke down the process of mindfulness into discrete and progressive steps. Knowing that most people had little time to devote to meditation, he also made it his priority to teach the direct application of mindfulness to daily life. Through the years, he outlined his simple steps in a series of handouts that form the basis of this book. Intended for laypeople practicing in their work and family lives without the luxury of long meditation retreats, Beginning Mindfulness is deeply rooted in Buddhist practice but remains unbound by any particular Buddhist tradition. Combining teachings from Korean Zen Master Srung Sanh, Vietnamese Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, and insight, or vipassana, meditation, Weiss skillfully blends these traditions with Hindu yogic methods to create a meditation manual that is both practical and inspiring.

The Beginning of Western Philosophy: Interpretation of Anaximander and Parmenides

by Martin Heidegger

Volume 35 of Heidegger's Complete Works comprises a lecture course given at the University of Freiburg in 1932, five years after the publication of Being and Time. During this period, Heidegger was at the height of his creative powers, which are on full display in this clear and imaginative text. In it, Heidegger leads his students in a close reading of two of the earliest philosophical source documents, fragments by Greek thinkers Anaximander and Parmenides. Heidegger develops their common theme of Being and non-being and shows that the question of Being is indeed the origin of Western philosophy. His engagement with these Greek texts is as much of a return to beginnings as it is a potential reawakening of philosophical wonder and inquiry in the present.
