Highly recommended. She has written a manual in clear, practical language.
The West needs such manuals. In this book Shaila Catherine has outlined an ancient way to train the mind in stillness and wise attention. Based primarily on the teachings of the Burmese master Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw, it also includes a helpful collection of references from classical Theravadan sources.

Shaila Catherine has clearly done her meditative homework and here she shares it with us in a systematic way that is easy to understand. This is a valuable work as both a practice guide and a reference manual for this tradition. The West relies upon teachers, centers and retreats to replace the monastic forms of the East.
Stress, tension and anxiety haunts many people's lives. Others may be blessed with emotional health yet feel there is much more depth to life than being a well adjusted person. Shaila's new book converts theory to practice, ideas to application, knowledge about meditation to direct experience. The West needs such manuals, as well as the benefits of Dharma teachers and regular retreats.
This is the form that is taking root in the West.
Wisdom Wide and Deep : A Practical Handbook for Mastering Jhana and Vipassana [Paperback]
The strength of Shaila's new book, and an excellent follow up to her previous book, Focused and Fearless, is the attention she gives to detail in terms of exploring various depths of calmness and inner absorption, as well uncovering insights. It is book that you will study, as opposed to sit down and read through.
It is reference book that you will use over and over again. The strong substantive nature of the book is an accurate reflection of Shaila''s own dedication to the dharma and her intense study of the Pali teachings.
