On Meditation is a compilation of portraits that explore the practice of meditation in all its forms. Practiced for thousands of years, meditation is at once profound and simple: the focused attempt to move beyond conditioned thinking into a deeper state of awareness. Yet what does that path, one of the inner journey, which is above all a private, interior one, really look like? On Meditation conveys firsthand experiences of those who have developed meaningful practices and are willing to share their experiences.
