Book Description

1 Nov 2007

In Meditation Now or Never Steve Hagen, a Zen priest and bestselling author of Buddhism Plain and Simple, provides an accessible and thorough manual on meditation, for both newcomers and experienced practitioners.

In the modern world our lives are more frenetic than ever. We live with a burning sense that we have to get something done. But what do we really achieve? And why are we never satisfied?

This book is an invitation to switch off, and to enjoy stillness - right now. Steve Hagen offers simple practices that avoid needlessly complicating meditation; highlights where many of us get stuck in meditating - and how to get unstuck; and, above all, focuses on meditation not simply as a spiritual technique, but as a way of living.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now or Never! 24 Dec 2012
By Aphie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a really good introduction to Zen meditation. It is written in a straightforward way with clear instructions and explanation to help you to understand what Zen meditation is (and isn't!). I found that this book dispelled a lot of misconceptions that I had about the process and also guided me through the 'what to dos' and 'what to expects' in a very practical way. This is by far the most easily accessible and down to earth guide to Zen and meditation that I have read and I would highly recommend it to anyone, whether they are just curious about it or looking to start meditating themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide into Meditation.. 19 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as I felt I needed more peace in my life. It is not enough to just buy it though you need to put some time aside to meditate on your own every day you can do this in a park or in your own room.

5.0 out of 5 stars great - even for experienced readers 4 Jun 2011
By sanyata
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i have read ~25 books on buddhism and zen
i thought this would be a nice book for beginners
but really it helped me get unstuck in some things that were weighing my practice down
simple and deep
this book seemingly negates the dichotomy between beginner's and advanced material
highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the bettter books on this subject... 22 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has one central theme - the only one it really needs - keep bringing your attention back to the present. That's it, but it's couched in a lot of useful ways and with many attendant analogies. Well worth a read for the 'intermediate' practitioner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A breakthrough experience 12 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very powerful book. The impact that a book has on you depends on where you are coming from: past experience, current attitude etc. This said, for me this has been an eye-opening book. It is simple and direct and delivers a very clear perspective on meditation and reality. Highly recommended.
