Description

Whether you are new to meditation, or looking to grow your existing knowledge, this practical guide on how to meditate provides everything you need to start (or continue) your meditative journey.

Want to improve your concentration and memory, and reduce stress? Meditation is scientifically proven to do both.

Do I need to sit in a special pose? How long should I meditate for? Is meditation religious? With myth-busting facts and easy-to-follow advice, Practical Meditation guides you through your first taste of meditation, to how to master the key techniques and deepen your practice.

Find the styles that suit you by exploring over 30 step-by-step meditations, from Mindfulness Meditation to Tai Chi. Discover the benefits of meditation on your mind and body, examining how it works and the scientific evidence behind its effects. Use the short "mini-meditations" to fit meditation into a busy lifestyle, or to sample a range of different styles, then learn how to set up a practice that works for you.

Clear, practical advice helps you build meditation into your daily life, so you can find peace and stillness anytime, anywhere - at home, on the beach, or on a business trip.
