I bought this book on recommendation of a friend who is Buddhist and a practiced meditator.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
As someone with very little experience with or knowledge of meditation, I found it very accessible, though a bit advanced at times.
The book contains several sections, and is essentially a collection of short articles written by a number of contributors to a meditation website. There is also a month guide to advancing your meditation practice.
The good thing about that is that it offers help and suggestions to both regular practitioners and new or uninitiated meditators alike.
At the same time, I felt there was not quite enough background information to get me started - if you are a newbie to meditation, you have to sort of take a leap of faith and learn largely through trial and error until you get to a stage at which you are comfortable apply the practices in the book.
While, again, the book is good for both experienced and new meditators, it is geared more toward the former, so if you are brand new to meditation you may need another source to help you get your feet wet, after which the book becomes extraordinarily helpful.
