Meditation is an invitation to discover a sense of deep well-being and inner richness that can transform every aspect of life. But where to start? Christina Feldman shows where in this comprehensive, accessible primer. Featuring over 100 color photos, this guide helps seekers both get started and maintain motivation. In simple, clear language, Feldman explains when to meditate, how to create a meditation space, what to wear, how to sit or lie (including advice on chairs and beds), how to acknowledge waxing and waning interest, and how to sustain dedication and perseverance. A long-time practitioner and teacher, Feldman draws on her experience in the book's guided meditations on such subjects as mindfulness of breathing; counting and naming; agitation and acceptance; restless and calm; and much more. She helps readers turn their attention to their everyday life to gain new understanding of — and more nurturing results from — walking, eating, listening, speaking, and creating simplicity.
