Cost: Please make a donation, of money or time, to your local foodbank or another organisation close to your heart.
Note of reassurance: You do not need to meditate, or even to want to meditate, to get something from these books. You also do not have to be Buddhist, or even want to be Buddhist. What the Buddha offered were happiness experiments. If it helps, you can think of it that way.
