Product Details


More than ever, people of all ages, backgrounds, and traditions are becoming aware of the benefits of meditation. Broad-based yet addressing the specific needs of individuals, the completely revised and updated Meditation — The Complete Guide offers information on forty-three meditation practices. An easy-to-use self-test on personal habits and preferences directs readers to choose a practice to fit their tastes and circumstances. The authors describe all the major forms of Eastern and Western religious practice — from Christianity, Judaism, and Islam to the traditions of India, Japan, China, and Tibet. Readers can explore techniques derived from Asian and African customs or meditations simply found in life practices such as sports, gardening, and creative arts. Meditation — The Complete Guide is designed for all readers, from the beginning meditator to the healing professional, with chapters on practices to heal physically, emotionally, and mentally.

— Coleman Barks, author of Rumi: The Big Red Book

“A treasure!...This is the best general book about meditation on the market.”
New Age Retailer

“A marvelously instructive and inviting compendium...Rarely has there been such a just, fair, balanced, knowledgeable, and inviting presentation of such a wide-ranging variety of disciplines.”
Spirit of Change magazine

“Shakes meditation free from the stereotypical image of crossed legs, closed eyes, and bamboo mat.”
Natural Health magazine

“A wonderful resource for humanity’s most ancient and powerful practice. With so many techniques included and elegantly described, everyone can find a way that works for them, regardless of faith or inclination. A real contribution.”
— Anodea Judith, PhD, author of Eastern Body, Western Mind

Meditation — The Complete Guide is indeed the most comprehensive and informative guide to the diversity of meditative practices I’ve ever read....Being someone who has felt inadequate meditating with the more popular forms, after reading this book I felt liberated to fly with numerous possibilities.”
— Ruth Barrett, author of Women’s Rites, Women’s Mysteries: Intuitive Ritual Creation
