Site Description and Index




This site was created by Dave Searby Mason and is in two parts.

The first part is called the “Primary Text”.   Everything in the Primary Text comes from my own search for the second kind of truth, so comes from my direct experiences.

The rest of the site is a collection of supporting advice and information I have collected over the years, some of it written by me, some of it made by others.  Where possible, I attribute the original creators.

The supporting information contains examples and advice for any interested in Meditation and Mindfulness and does not advocate any particular tradition or teaching but will reflect my own experiences and subsequent preferences.
