    A book to be used, not just read!

    Although this new book from the Simpkinses begins where their 'Principles of Meditation' left off, it also stands on its own as an excellent synthesis of Eastern meditation technique and Western pragmatic values for dealing with the stresses of everyday life. It's a book to be used, not just read the exercises throughout invite the reader to lay it aside and get down to business, learning each skill necessary to affect attitude, increase harmony, and move toward greater fulfillment of spirit. Early chapters provide the philosophic background and meditation basics. Part Three draws on the authors' extensive experience as martial artists and meditation teachers to provide a practical guide to habit change, including tools for improving health, learning skills, memory, emotional balance, work life, and relationsips

    A wonderful meditation course

    This book and CD together gave me an excellent experience of meditation. The book explains where meditation comes from and how to do it. This book also shows many creative ways to apply meditation to life. But what was really great was the CD-- beautifully done, very inviting and easy to follow! I felt really relaxed and calm after listening to it. I highly recommend this book/CD combination!!
