A complete guide to mental culture practices
The Sway of Contentedness is a book which encompasses all of the subject matter discussed on this site, though is not a duplication or reproduction of articles appearing here. It’s written as a comprehensive overview of the mind and mental culture practices, detailing descriptions of contemplative states including that of non-dual awareness. Three sections of aphorisms aid learning and invite pondering, and the whole is structured as a linear, progressive learning process suitable for the capable, though non-specialist, non-academic reader.
The content is sound, precise and innovative
For anyone wanting a handy physical reference book for the various ideas discussed here on this site, The Sway of Contentedness is the ideal companion text. The writing style is straight forward and at times humorous, whilst being formally correct at the same time. This approach assists the reader’s comprehension, as descriptions of the mind and mental states are of no benefit when written in a wishy-washy style. Some strong opinions are expressed about contemporary takes on ancient philosophies, and which may challenge those wedded to particular ideologies or systems.
Beautiful layout, stitched pages, ‘supermatt’ finish
The Sway of Contentedness is available in eBook format through Amazon, and the paperback can also be purchased there online, as well as at Waterstones of course. May I say though, that I feel we benefit greatly by living in a society in which independent bookshops are able to exist and flourish, bringing a wide and exciting range of reading to our attention. For this reason, I urge you to support independent and specialist bookshops if at all possible. I can also highly recommend these wonderful stores in London where The Sway of Contentedness may be bought:
Watkins Books is London’s premier stockist for all esoteric titles. You can buy The Sway of Contentedness there, as well as having a wonderful experience into the bargain – a treasure of a book store in the heart of London’s West End.
Karnac Books is the U.K.’s foremost specialist store for texts on psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. You can buy The Sway of Contentedness there, and view many academic titles not available at any other store in London – a unique place.
