"For many years now a respected Vipassana teacher, John Coleman's story is a classic - and a good read!" - Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart and After the Ecstacy, the Laundry. "I am touched... with how well John Coleman presents the urgency and dedication to spiritual practice - a universal response to the realisation that liberation and peace of mind are a possibility." - Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think and The Courage to Be Happy."
