The English edition of the book on Sumarah by Laura Romano is now available. Sumarah is a philosophy, a way of life and a form of meditation originating from Java. The practice, which is based on developing sensitivity, receptivity and acceptance, guides towards a deep relaxation of body, feeling and mind. This is the first step in the process of personal transformation and meeting our total self.
This text is a revised and partially updated version of the PhD thesis completed in 1980 for the History Department of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
