» Stephen Snyder – ‘The Transformative and The Transcendent’ – Interview by Iain McNay
Stephen is the co-author of ‘Practicing the Jhanas: Traditional Concentration Meditation as Presented by the Venerable PA Auk Sayadaw.’ He has been a Buddhist practitioner for over 40 years. In the 70’s he read ‘Three Pillars Of Zen‘ which started him on his path of meditation, and then a few years later he had a significant awakening experience which showed him the nature of reality. He discovered the Jhana path of meditation and found he strongly connected with that. He now works with Tina Rasmussen teaching meditation and is also a practicing lawyer. He has found that it is really important to work on the Transformative and The Transcendent and talks in detail about this in the interview.
