Finding Wholeness, Harmony and Rest
Exposing the Conflict in All Thinking
Darryl Bailey

A new book by Darryl Bailey in which he explores the ever-changing nuances of perception, thought, and circumstance. “I want to consider a major difficulty that arises in the life of every person, and within society in general. It is perhaps the single largest barrier to the happiness and health of every human being and the largest barrier to the happiness and health of society as a whole.

This difficulty has to do with the relationship of thinking to our actual experience of existence, and the fact that every thought that we have is in conflict with our experience of life.”

About the Author

Spontaneously drawn to meditation at age fourteen, Darryl spent the next seventeen years exploring awareness and concentration exercises from both Eastern and Western traditions.  He then spent nine years apprenticed with mindfulness teacher Ruth Denison and another six years as a meditation monk in the Thai Forest Tradition, under the guidance of Ajahn Sumedho.

Along the way he had recurring contact with the independent philosopher, Jiddu Krishnamurti, and a significant connection with the Advaita sage, Robert Adams.

Darryl is the author of four previous books, Dismantling the Fantasy, Essence Revisited, Buddhessence, and “What the …”.
