Overview

Now there's a paradox, right? Imagine if drivers started meditating! Thousands of drivers, eyes closed, lotus position, trance like state, accidents and traffic chaos! It'd never work, right? Wrong! Meditation is a state that combines a relaxed physical posture with mental alertness - the ideal state for driving. While driving, many of us slump in our seat and hold tension in our shoulders. As for what's happening in our mind, how can drivers be expected to relax and concentrate while listening to the radio, talking on the hands-free, mentally replaying that argument, or planning the weekend? Here’s another paradox. Imagine peak hour traffic, jam-packed with relaxed and alert drivers; drivers who are aware not only of their here and now but also of what’s happening on the road around them. Think it’d never happen, right? Wrong! Meditations for Manic Motorists is the start. Enjoy driving again, arrive at work, a job interview or a first date with your stress managed and your mind invigorated with this easy to follow step-by-step.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Is driving home from work a time for angry gestures and tension headaches? What if instead it could be used for rejuvenation and recharging? Imagine arriving tranquil and peaceful after your commute by using annoying drivers as practice tools for your own serenity. With several deceptively simple mind and body practices, Michie's (Buddhism for Busy People) meditations invigorate and release tension, endowing drivers with improved focus. Exercises can be listened to individually for a ten-minute pick-me-up or all at once in a lengthy drive. The program is read by Nicholas Bell, whose soothing voice is a perfect fit, enhancing the calming effect. A great listen for anyone with a stressful daily commute. Recommended to fans of Leonard Scheff's The Cow in the Parking Lot.—Terry Ann Lawler, Phoenix P.L.
