Sister Chan Khong
For nearly 30 years Sister Chan Khong’s deep relaxation practice has been a highlight for thousands of people who have attended Order of Interbeing Buddhist retreats. With Deep Relaxation, readers learn to meditate and relax body and mind at the deepest level, leading to a measurable reduction of stress. Sister Chan Khong effectively guides readers through the practice with a combination of spoken words and traditional songs from around the world, initiating a process that shows how we can achieve a more positive and healthy life as we move out of the meditation and into the world. With her soothing voice, her pacing, her extensive experience of practicing mindfulness in everyday life — and with the beauty of the gentle music included on the free CD — practitioners achieve a state of profound relaxation. This relaxation practice is designed for those interested in mindfulness of Buddhism and relieving stress.
