5.0 out of 5 stars A recipe book for meditators 31 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
The Meditation Bible is perfect for someone like me, who wants to explore the benefits of meditation without subscribing to Buddhism or any other belief system. Gauding gives a brief introduction to posture, basic breathing exercises etc - but the vast majority of the book is a sort of recipe book for meditation. Each section gives a series of meditations with very practical applications. Coming out of a relationship? Preparing for surgery? Just wanting to enjoy the outdoors, or calm down after a busy day at work? There is a meditation here for you, explained with great clarity.

I had wanted to try meditation for a while, but was put off by the books that tell me to visualise my chakra colours glowing, or to meditate upon the kindness of the Buddha etc. This book is a much more secular affair. If you are drawn to Eastern spirituality, then a handful of these meditations do touch on it - using a mandala or meditating on the Buddha - but this is intended as a sort of handbook, and the author explains that she doesn't expect every meditation to suit everyone.

I bought this with The Meditation Experience by the same author, which is perhaps a better choice if you are new to meditation. The Meditation Experience takes you through the basics of breathing, body scan and posture in a non-hectoring, but very useful way. It also comes with a CD which I found helpful. The two books together form a really accessible, secular meditation course free of the Eastern jargon that can sometimes be off-putting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very handy 28 Jun 2013
By Culture Enthusiast TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This little book is very handy if like me you want to learn how to meditate and the different types of meditation. I appreciate that this book is not focused on the spiritual side of this practice as in the past I have purchased books that were more about the spiritualism than meditation itself. I also liked that unlike other books it does not talk only about one type of meditation (focusing), but also about other three types (thinking, visualising and experiencing).
It is very well written, the explanations are easy to implement and it is very comprehensive. 4 stars as it would be great if it came with a CD. However, after purchasing this book I have found out that the author has published another book on meditation with a CD, which I may buy. If you are a beginner this book is a great introduction to meditation.

Being a beginner, I have recently received this book and I am not disappointed. It definately pays to take onboard existing reviews as well, and you won't go far wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars its ok... 9 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
If you are looking for something that is incredably basic then this is for you, its good for quick fix solutions but nothing that is going to change your life. If you want something deeper with insight, something for the long term that will make a difference then look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Presents 16 Mar 2014

By L.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Contains ideas for contemplative practices. Useful to question oneself and contemplate on some daily issues, can be done anytime to any length and in any situation; nevertheless nothing that would lead to knowledge, insight or enlightenment.

If you already meditate (whether it's insight, mindfulness, yogic meditation practices etc - whichever style) there is nothing for you.

If you don't meditate but have trouble in daily life and want to spend 3 minutes to calm down a bit and to contemplate on a problem then you might find a question or two to ponder upon.
This book won't lead you to meditation though ... Look for Jack Kornfield or Sally Kempton or any other more knowledgeable persons writings for meditation practice.
