    In the words of the Buddha, the four foundations of mindfulness (the four sadhipatthanas) are " the direct path for the purification of beings, for the surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disapperance of dukkha (suffering) and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the rea;ization of Nibbahna." Within the quinitessential discourse called the Satipatthana Sutta, we find the Buddha's seminal teachings on the practice of meditation.

    Here's an idea:
    Get this book (there is only one by Joseph Goldstein here; but what a gem!)
    and a couple of Jack Kornfields' (they are all excellent)
    and a couple of Pema Chodrins' (this is key, mind won't wake without heart)
    Maybe throw in Ram Das or Adyashanti
    (Alan Watts minces no words either)
    Take a couple of weeks off
    Go somewhere quiet and full of nature
    Listen, sit, walk, transform.
