Publisher's Summary

As a Tibetan lama and leader of Shambhala (an international community of 165 meditation centers), Sakyong Mipham has found physical activity to be essential for spiritual well-being. He's been trained in horsemanship and martial arts but has a special love for running. Here, he incorporates his spiritual practice with running, presenting basic meditation instruction and fundamental principles he has developed. Even though both activities can be complicated, the lessons here are simple and designed to show how the melding of internal practice with physical movement can be used by anyone - regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability - to benefit body and mind.

    "Principle based but very approachable"

    The running part of this book was not as extensive as the meditation part but that was okay for me. The author avoided cookie cutter approach and went into the principles of what meditation is and how it combines with running and really any active sport. When we are running we are just tiring the mind out so we can control it but that does not give us true control. I would recommend this book to runners that are more about understanding their mind rather than those looking for a recipe type approach
