Product Description

Review

 There is much wisdom to be found in this brilliant yet simple book. The lessons offered by Sakyong Mipham are like spiritual vitamins that will nourish the runner's soul.
–Jerry Lynch, Ph.D, author with Al Huang of Spirit of the Dancing Warrior and the best-seller, Thinking Body, Dancing Mind


Running With the Mind of Meditation is a delightful and welcome addition to contemplative literature.  We often forget that movement is a natural complement to meditative practice, and helps us avoid what has been called the 'stone Buddha' syndrome. This book is a profound guide to the integration of mind and body."
 
 -Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words: the Power of Premonitions and The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

As someone who is in the process of learning to endurance run AND learning to meditate at the same time, this book was quite timely. It is insightful, interesting, and even humorous in all the right places. Mipham's anecdotal stories bring us closer to his experiences as a meditation master and runner as we can relate to his growth, pain, and humbling moments. This is an enjoyable read for anyone who is interested in how running can grow us as whole people and the stages we may go through to get there.
