Product Description

Product Description

If meditation were available in capsule form, it would be the biggest selling drug of all time. It has been scientifically proven to deliver highly effective stress relief, boost our immune systems, and dramatically slow the aging process. It has also been shown to make us much happier and more effective thinkers. Given all the physical and psychological benefits, why aren't more of us doing it? In this thought-provoking and entertaining book, David Michie explains the nuts and bolts of meditation. As a busy professional and a long-term meditator, he also gives a first-hand account of how to integrate this transformational practice into everyday life. Combining leading-edge science with timeless wisdom, Hurry Up and Meditate provides all the motivation and tools you need to achieve greater balance, better health, and develop a more panoramic perspective on life. The idea of infusing our daily schedule with newfound tranquility may sound appealing, but not everyone is temperamentally suited to sitting around in the lotus position chanting "Om." Not to mention the fact that some of us just have very active minds. We'd like to meditate, but we're just not capable of switching off.  The the amazing thing is that it's exactly the people who use the "too busy," "'too hard," and "too hyper" justifications who stand to gain the most from meditation.

More About the Author

David Michie is the author of The Art of Purring, The Dalai Lama's Cat, Buddhism for Busy People, Hurry Up and Meditate and Enlightenment to Go.

Both The Art of Purring and The Dalai Lama's Cat are novels 'written' by His Holiness's mischievous Himalayan, offering Buddhist wisdom in a warm hearted, entertaining format.

Buddhism for Busy People describes David's encounter with Tibetan Buddhism, weaving an autobiographic narrative through a presentation of core concepts. Hurry Up and Meditate introduces the benefits and main types of meditation practice. Both books are best sellers in Australia and have been published internationally and translated into many languages.

Enlightenment to Go illuminates the world's first self-help book - an 8th century text by the Buddhist sage Shantideva - which The Dalai Lama consistently recommends for its life-changing psychological tools and transcendent wisdom.

David was born in Zimbabwe, educated at Rhodes University, South Africa, and lived in London for ten years. He is married and is based in Perth, Australia.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book on meditation 28 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great introduction to meditation. It has given me the enthusiasm and discipline to meditate on a daily basis and I have enjoyed inner peace and joy ever since.

David Michie begins by listing the many benefits of meditation to mind, body and spirit (all backed up by scientific research). He then explains, in a no nonsense way how to meditate. I found this book simple, practical and profound.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile 6 Sep 2010
By Teddy
Format:Paperback
I bought this to read and recommend to the many busy busy clients that I think would benefit from meditation if they could squeeze it into the day (to begin with). For such people this little book is a great introduction, half of it giving the rationale for meditating (including up-to-date sciency stuff) and the second half describing techniques/approaches. It's a quick read, not overfacing, and I think it does a very good job of introducing meditation in a simple and straightforward way that will appeal to people of any religion or none.

Hurry Up and Meditate
David Michie
Snow Lion publications, 2008
ISBN 978-55939-306=5

This is a helpful book for anyone interested in the why and how of meditation. If you want to know why you should meditate then begin your journey at chapter one. If you want to know how to meditate then dive in at chapter four.

David Michie writes in an easy conversational style. In the first three chapters he introduces the topic of meditation and the research that has taken place into its physical and psychological benefits. This is presented outside the context of any religious tradition or belief. If you are looking for scientific evidence of the efficacy of meditation you will find it in the first three chapters, before going on to find it in the laboratory of your own experience.

Having shown why you might want to meditate the book goes on to show how.

David Michie writes with an understanding of the practical aspects of developing a meditation practice - when to meditate, for how long, in what posture and so forth. He recommends starting with fifteen minutes. This is important advice. It is a period of time that would be easy for anyone to consistently fit into their day. A short period of meditation each day will have much greater beneficial effect than a longer period occasionally.

David Michie guides the reader through a simple practice of meditation and how to deal with agitation and dullness. He then explains different types of meditation and shows how they can be complementary to each other. he explains the importance of creating a regular daily practice and keeping it light and easy so that it can become part of your life.
