This book presents a highly original and accessible pathway to self-discovery and personal liberation. Since 1999 the Big Mind process has been experienced by many thousands of people in seminars across America. Big Mind employs a Jungian voice dialogue technique that enables people to step out of limited self-concepts into awareness of their many different sub-selves (emotions/mental states). In addition to exploration of the more familiar sub-voices like anger and fear, author Zen Master Dennis Genpo Merzel uses this technique to help people access the ever-present Big Mind/Big Heart awareness - the clear, just being awareness and the unconditional compassion that we all can experience. The Big Mind process is now available in book form to bring readers of all backgrounds many benefits including: access to our innate wisdom, compassion and equanimity; openness of mind and ability to shift perspectives; greater presence and empowerment; and appreciation for the wisdom within all of our many sub-selves even ones we tend to dislike or disown, like fear and anger.

This is a wonderful accessible book - a brilliant Western innovation to Zen and Buddhist practice. I recommend first watching Genpo's videos available though his web site in order to really get the power of what this book -more importantly this practice has to help the meditation practitioner.

Genpo has helped bring the power of Zen practice to Western sensibilities but more significantly to evolve the practice using some modern science and psychology. For anyone interested in meditation - this is a must read (and view the videos) that can improve and accelerate (in a healthy, psychologically attuned way) one's practice. Ultimately success in meditation involves evolving who we are - and this provides solid help. ( )
