This CD set is a recording of a 6-week class on meditation given by Ray Grasse. Since not all meditative techniques are suitable for all temperaments, Ray provides a broad overview of meditative styles, encouraging his students to experiment and find what works best for them. Covered in the course are the use of mantras, visualization, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and concentration exercises. Ray Grasse has had over 25 years of experience as a practitioner of meditation. During that time he studied for 15 years with Swami Kriyananda in Chicago, has taken a 4-month intensive course at the Zen Mountain Monastery in upstate New York, and taught meditation classes for 5 years at the College of DuPage in Illinois. 1999. 496 minutes.
