Meditation: an in-depth guide


Many of you know that I'm an absolute meditation fiend.
And while I can't lay claim to any great stage of enlightenment, I am still humbly and doggedly pursuing a meditation practice that has been with me for about 20 years now. And I must say that each and every day is still a struggle.
I am very excited by a new release coming out next month from one of the godfathers of meditation in Australia, Ian Gawler.
Mr. Gawler is a charming and inspiring man, and I have been to hear him several times over the past few years. I know he has been responsible for introducing many Australians to meditation, and his own particular focus on health and the management of pain has been invaluable to many.
So this is on my list for next month. I think it will give me a whole lot of new insights and aids to meditative practice.

Meditation: an in-depth guide

 

 

 

Ian Gawler and Paul Bedson

A comprehensive introduction to meditation practice, written by two leading Western teachers.
Meditation is increasingly recommended for relaxation, for enhancing relationships and wellbeing, to increase performance in sport and business, for personal growth, and to assist healing. From two leading Western meditation teachers comes this inspiring and comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to know how to meditate well.
Introducing Mindfulness-Based Stillness Meditation, Ian Gawler and Paul Bedson explain how to build a daily meditation practice. They also show how meditation can be used to work with our emotions, aid healing, for pain management and as a spiritual practice.
Meditation is a path, a practice we can pursue and refine throughout our lives, reaching ever further into the potential it holds for us. Drawing on modern science as well as ancient Eastern traditions and the authors' own extensive personal experience as practitioners and teachers, this guide offers the techniques and understanding needed to explore meditation practice deeply. It is also an invaluable resource for meditation teachers from all backgrounds.
