You practice meditation, or think about trying. Either way, you're hearing a lot about meditation these days. You know, or at least have a hunch, that meditation is popular for good reason.
You want to learn more, go deeper, feel better. What's really going on when you meditate- beyond watching random thoughts and feelings swirl around in your head?
Or, you're a seasoned practitioner, teacher or guide. The (Forever) Beginner's Meditation Companion grounds the inner life of meditation into everyday visual images. It helps make sense of the more abstract experiences of practice, from the first session all the way to Nirvana. It serves as a model for cutting through lofty-sounding language and that awkward feeling of grasping for words.
It provides straightforward, concise direction on how to begin as well as how to know you're progressing. How to deal with a host of distractions. What to do when a practice seems to go badly. What to do when you feel like you don't have time to practice or when you're experiencing a challenging life change.
The (Forever) Beginner's Meditation Companion helps you design a practice that is as unique as you are, that will grow alongside you, be your roadmap, toolbox and companion.
