Overview

West meets East in this new edition with updating of chapters plus an appendix on research and neuroscience findings. The book begins with a grounding in the philosophies of the East-Yoga, Buddhism, Zen, Taoism, and Confucianism- with the express purpose of guiding readers to bring this ancient wisdom into everyday life. The Simpkins teach useful skills that form a basis of meditation practice in concentration of attention, visualization, and body awareness. Explicit guidelines lead into meditating from thought to effective action. All the later chapters include specific meditation exercises, more than forty in all! Action is the focus of everyday life, and these exercises address action at its core-what holds us back from fulfilling ourselves and what can make things flow smoothly. Learn to resolve conflict, gain self discipline, and find a healthy balance for life, from quiet sitting to happy, active living! The Accompanying Audio CD guides listeners into a deep, enjoyable, calming and revitalizing experience of meditation. Learn mindfulness, centering, attuning, and more for a happy, fulfilling, active life!
