Format: Paperback
Quite amazing how easy this book was to read and understand and how powerful an impact it had on my stressed out mind. I'd read other

Paul Wilson books (Calm etc) so knew that he made things accessible, but

meditation is a fairly tricky subject for me sometimes and he's really made it seem simple.

I've been meditating for a few years and suspected this might have been more

of the same. But it's not. It's very clever really. It shows you exactly how

all the different meditation types work, and how they all fit in. Then it

shows you can put them to use - no matter how busy your life is.

I have told all of my professional friends to get a copy as a matter of urgency....this stuff really works.

I found this book easy to read & understand, certainly a very good introduction to meditation techniques for beginners & some useful ideas for the more experienced meditator. I liked the symbols used to suggest times for meditation as well as the general appearance of the book. I have recommended it to several friends & the feedback has been good.

This is the best book on meditation I have read to-date.

It compares and contrasts the 3 fundamental types of meditation namely 'Deep', 'Directed' and 'Aware', and eventually shows how all converge to the same outcome, while adopting different paths.

It offers simple, easy-to-follow suggestions and practice recipes for beginners and advanced users, while blending the art form to a larger goal of
identifying with the eventual source of everything.

Every single person can get a fleeting sense of the 'Quiet' by adopting the Centre-Widen-Listen technique for a few minutes.

This is indeed the pinnacle of Paul Wilson's 'Calm' series.

Finally a book that demystifies meditation while maintaining the sacred and spiritual. Paul Wilson has the talent for rendering both meditation techniques and the divine clear, through his practical explanations and simple terminology, for all people regardless of education level, religion or philosophy. Inner Peace is accessible to all of us. Thank you Paul.

As a long term meditator, I have found this particular approach to presenting and understanding the fundamentals of the practice to be the best. It is devoid of jargon and mystique and keeps one focussed on the elements which should provide anyone with the best chance of making progress with the practice. I have now bought several copies, having found myself passing this on to people who were at various stages of inner exploration. All have found it to be beneficial. It is also not a "book" in the ordinary sense - more an interactive experience, which benefits returning to as needed. Can't recommend it highly enough.
