Georg Kuhlewind (1924-2006) was a Hungarian philosopher and teacher who was inspired by Rudolf Steiner's spiritual science. He was the author of numerous books and lectured around the world. He died in January 2006 at the age of 83.
'This concise little book summarizes forty years of research on the nature and power of human attention. In a direct style, as though thinking out loud, Kuhlewind shares a sequence of original exercises of his own devising and offers practical tips on technique, embedding it all in characteristically succinct epistemological remarks. I recommend this generous, instructive book to anyone who wants to begin meditating and also to those who want to refresh their existing practice.' -- Gertrude Reif Hughes, Professor Emerita of English and Women's Studies at Wesleyan University
