Reflective Meditation: cultivating kindness and curiosity in the Buddha’s company

by Linda Modaro and Nelly Kaufer

Reflective meditation cover

This book welcomes you into a lively, open minded, often humorous, and astoundingly insightful conversation between the founders of Reflective Meditation.

You may find yourself laughing out loud or feeling a great sense of relief as Linda Modaro and Nelly Kaufer lightheartedly articulate a broad, roomy, and inclusive path for turning inward, reflecting, and using the language of experience to cultivate a deeply rewarding and satisfying meditation practice.

Amidst the banter, you will receive clear instructions and guidance on how to develop your own Reflective Meditation practice, as well as a sensitive and intelligent overview of basic early Buddhist teachings. They thoughtfully discuss Buddhist concepts offering a refreshingly contemporary, feministic interpretation that is fitting for the world and conditions we live in today.



Linda Modaro is spiritual director and lead teacher of Sati Sangha, an online meditation community. She also mentors teachers and offers ethical reflecting for Buddhist teachers. A master of Qi Gong, Linda created a bestselling four-part Qi Gong video series, Discovering Chi (1995).
