Jeff Falconer

Meditation does not need to come with any belief system or structures; with the simplification of the process comes a deeper freedom. Sonoma native Jeff Falconer, who has been practicing medication for over half a century, has distilled his practice down to the essentials. Although his process is still ongoing, he has shared his style of meditation with two new books, This Timeless Breath: Simple Guide to Sitting Meditation and This Step Home: Simple Guide to Walking Meditation. He will be discussing his books and his process at Readers’ Books on Thursday, March 8th at 7pm.

Face it--the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists are interesting, but do they reflect what Sonomans read?  Here's a compliation of what sold the most copies throughout 2017.  Keep in mind that some of these books came out early in the year (All the Light came in paperback in January) while others arrived at the end of the year (Leonardo da Vinci in October) this list has its limitations too.
