A Skeptic's Path to Enlightenment

By Scott Snibbe

A Skeptic’s Path to Enlightenment brings the inner science of Buddhist meditation to twenty-first century people hungry for happy, meaningful lives. It is a secular approach to meditation that requires no belief beyond our current understanding of science and psychology. Skeptic’s Path meditations are based on powerful analytical meditation techniques that use imagination, emotions, and critical inquiry to probe our inner and outer realities and expand our compassion. These Tibetan Buddhist mind training techniques expand on the popular mindfulness approach to meditation to help us better understand our minds from the inside out, and build healthy mental habits that are the true causes of happiness. Each week in discussions, guided meditations and interviews, we explore the vast variety of analytic meditation topics including love, compassion, sleep, tonglen, vipassana, stress, the body, meditation posture, anger, anxiety, addiction, grief, forgiveness, patience, confidence, loneliness, work, relationships, and more.
