Overview

Meditation is an effective, long-term method that enables people with Asperger syndrome to take responsibility and improve their quality of life. This book provides an clear and practical explanation of meditation specifically tailored to Aspies.

In addition to its great value as a relaxation technique, meditation offers numerous other benefits for people with Asperger syndrome. It positively influences emotions, curbs anxiety and meltdowns, promotes self-esteem and self-awareness, and facilitates interaction with others. This book discusses why common character traits such as dedication and introversion make Aspies particularly well suited to practicing meditation and offers guidance on choosing the right type of meditation to suit your needs. With useful advice on how to begin, where to meditate, what to wear, and much more, the book shows that meditation can be a powerful everyday technique for personal development and self-discovery.
