    Gawain or Fontana on visualization? Looking to add to my practice. Love Thich Nhat Hanh & the Walking meditation CD. Are you aware of Miksang photography? Seems interesting along these lines.

      Mmmm. Both. Fontana is more rooted in fundamentals making it clear. Gawain is just what her title says creative and thus more lively.
