5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin - without hocus pocus, 31 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Meditation Experience: Godsfield Experience (Paperback)
If, like me, you want to try meditation but are put off by the religious/ spiritual vocabulary that often comes with it, this book is an excellent one. I had dabbled with other texts, CDs etc but was always uncomfortable with the religious aspects that often underlie them.

This book is clear, well illustrated and gives a wide variety of meditation techniques. It begins with a very clear guide to posture, basic breathing meditation and other techniques - mindfulness, visualisation, meditating with nature sounds etc. This is all supported by a CD which, after playing it a few times, I found I didn't need to use again. There are occasional 'notes' pages to allow you to chart your progress and see which of the meditations work best for you.

A few of the meditations included are indeed derived from Eastern spiritual traditions, but they are offered amongst a wide range of others and all are offered as possibilities, not as mandatory. Speaking as a fairly cynical person who has been ejected from 3 yoga classes for laughing out loud, I am delighted with this book. It really is a good course in meditation, and I have now made meditation a daily practice which I look forward to.
