Abstract:

"Still, in the City is a collection of stories about the practice of urban Buddhism--when a New York City subway becomes a mobile temple, when Los Angeles traffic becomes a vehicle for awakening, when a Fifth Avenue sidewalk offers a spiritual path through craving, generosity, and sorrow. The instructions offered here for exploring mindfulness in and around our cities are written to be accessible, whether you've practiced a lot or a little. Perhaps you've returned home from a retreat and want to hold the attention and intention gained from pausing and experiencing the silence. Or perhaps you practice mindfulness and don't call it Buddhism, or you are just curious about what mindfulness is all about. Still, in the City will speak to you."--Amazon.com.
