We’re thrilled to announce the first six of the new books we’ll be publishing in 2020. Three of them are now available for sponsorship. Why sponsor a book?

We have exciting news.
Our production team, led by Michelle, has been hard at work on four meaningful new books for 2019. These books focus on inner reflection and transformation.
If you feel these books are important to you and the world, please consider sponsoring a book. It is a difficult time for independent publishers to stay afloat. Help and support from our readers goes a long way.
Following on from his two best-selling books, Satipatthana: The Direct Path to Insight and Perspectives on Satipatthana, in this book, Anālayo provides inspiration and guidance to all meditators, of any tradition and any level of experience. Each of the twenty-four chapters concludes with suggestions to support meditative practice.
An eminently pragmatic discussion of how to put these teachings into practice. Anālayo has developed a simple and straightforward
Giulietta from Windhorse Publications writes: “We are looking forward to two new books coming out this summer - I’ll Meet You There by Shantigarbha and Satipatthāna Meditation: A Practice Guide by Bhikkhu Anālayo. As we’re a small charity, we ask that you please consider sponsoring one or both to help us with publication costs. Those contributing sponsorships of £30 or more will receive the eBook and paperback upon publication.

This year started with a ‘bang’ for us with two new releases. A Meditator’s Life of the Buddha by Bhikkhu Anālayo aims to help meditators gain inspiration and guidance by following the Buddha’s journey. Wild Awake hopes to inspire and support people who are going out into nature and/or reflecting in solitude. The first review of Wild Awake by Middle Way Society is glowing.
