In the past decade, researchers have discovered what great meditators have known all along - meditation has unrivaled power to quiet your mind, relax your body, improve your health, and bring more love and joy into your life. While over 5 million Americans meditate regularly, millions more remain unaware of the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being that can result from such a simple practice. "Meditation For Dummies" guides you down the road to increased awareness and inner peace. It also covers the historical origins and traditional wisdom behind modern meditation practice. Relax, take a deep breath, and we'll do the rest.

Definitely the book to start with as a beginner - it explains what meditation is (and even more important, what it is not). Especially appreciated were chap 18 - "ten favorite all-purpose meditations" and chap 19 - "ten meditation research studies - and what they mean for you". Very user friendly and practical with a great resources section if you wish to delve further into the subject. Enjoyable to read and recommended. ( )

If you are like me, and are beginning to explore meditation, this book will be a wonderful addition to your library. Bodian, the author, is the former editor-in-chief of Yoga Journal. He explains meditation in a down to earth manner, and guides you every step of the way. The book covers various types of meditation without favoring one over the other. It offers an informative, practical, and comprehensive look at meditation. I don't know if it would be useful for a seasoned meditation practitioner, but it is certainly the best book for a beginner like me. ( )
