On Meditation

On Meditation is a compilation of portraits that explores the deeply personal practice of meditation in all of its myriad 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 first-hand experiences of those who have developed meaningful practices and are willing to share their experiences. From teachers to everyday people to celebrities, the subjects of On Meditation offer a rare glimpse into the private insights and rituals of its subjects.
