Overview

Meditation is an invitation to discover a sense of deep well-being and inner richness that can transform every aspect of life. But where to start? Christina Feldman shows where in this comprehensive, accessible primer. Featuring over 100 color photos, this guide helps seekers both get started and maintain motivation. In simple, clear language, Feldman explains when to meditate, how to create a meditation space, what to wear, how to sit or lie (including advice on chairs and beds), how to acknowledge waxing and waning interest, and how to sustain dedication and perseverance. A long-time practitioner and teacher, Feldman draws on her experience in the book's guided meditations on such subjects as mindfulness of breathing; counting and naming; agitation and acceptance; restless and calm; and much more. She helps readers turn their attention to their everyday life to gain new understanding of — and more nurturing results from — walking, eating, listening, speaking, and creating simplicity.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Despite its visually interesting layout and 100 color photographs, this book, by a veteran meditator and author, adds nothing distinctive to the crowded meditation bookshelf. Aimed at beginners, it's long on the promises of meditation. Meditators will become calm, clear, compassionate, sensitive, patient and aware. What's not to want about these admirable qualities? Yet Feldman is not very specific about how to get there from here. In posture instruction, for example, which is square one for beginners, the direction "Let your hands rest on your legs or together" is neither specific nor elaborate enough. Feldman's vague language doesn't translate well to paper; such statements as "Awareness is the cultivation of intimacy in each moment" exemplify meditation buzzwords. This gift book relies heavily on evocative generic pictures, showing thin, attractive people between the ages of 20 and 30, a majority of them females sporting funky jewelry and yoga wear and looking tranquil by idyllic rocks and water. Meditation is antithetical to instant results, but it also requires more depth than this to motivate a beginner. (Oct. 28) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
