"In the ups and downs of life there's a place within us all that is still, wakeful, and compassionate.  No matter what happens we can tune into that.  If we take the time to be with it - to honor and bow to even the challenging times - our suffering can become a great source of light that illumines our heart and deepest compassion."

Dr. Bernie Siegel, M.D., a surgeon at Yale University, strongly advocates meditation to cancer patients, saying
