Allan Lokos at the Tricycle Community Book Club

Starting April 19th, Allan Lokos will be leading the Tricycle Community Book Club in a discussion of his new book, Pocket Peace: Effective Practices for Enlightened Living. Allan is the founder and guiding teacher of the Community Meditation Center in New York

From the pages of Pocket Peace:

It may seem surprising, but spiritual practice is not about becoming a better person. You are already whole and perfect as you are. Spiritual practice is about becoming present to that perfection. Mindfulness is the quality that opens the door to the presence of our true self. We become present to what is happening within us and around us as it is happening. Therefore these practices are intended to help us become more aware of our thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and motivations, and to see things as they really are, not as they appear to be.

Audio readings will supplement the discussion at the Tricycle Community Book Club. Previous Book Club books include Anam Thubten's No Self, No Problem, Matthew Flickstein's Meditator's Workbook, and the classic Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind.

You can buy the book now from the publisher, Tarcher-Penguin, or from Amazon.

Join us April 19th!
