Mindful Raft over Troubled Waters is a precise, simple and clear practical book on the development of non-judgmental, choiceless and insightful awareness that leads to the complete evolution of consciousness.
Dhiravamsa, International Vipassana Meditation Master, Grand Canary Island, Spain, author of Healing through Pure Mindfulness, Nirvana Upside Down, The Way of Non-attachment, The Middle Path of Life, and Una nueva visión del Budismo.
If you’re going to spend a year alone on an island, I would recommend you take Mindful Raft over Troubled Waters along with you. But if you are living the way most of us do, this book may be even more important for you to read. It has been so for me and still is.
Why? Because each time I read even a few lines, it has an
immediate and magical effect of transporting me home to my true being.
The simplicity and clarity of these words allow me to see things simply,
as they are, without all the turmoil and dramas of my mind. So reading
from this book helps me remember what’s real — and forget all the rest.

To Vipassanā practice, certainly different approaches are possible and desirable; and certainly yours of “soft Vipassanā” can be helpful and effective. Those who are helped by it, may then feel encouraged to take up a stricter regimen.

Contemplation articulated, insight and concern expressed, it is as though getting in touch with a place within our own minds.

It is indeed a remarkable contribution for those on the path of awakening and a good book for those who keep abreast of the Vipassanā technique and its application in daily life.
