THE UNEXPECTED POWER OF MINDFULNESS & MEDITATION
ED & DEB SHAPIRO
There is a sanity and brilliance to mindfulness and meditation, from awakening inner strength, kindness and fearlessness to inviting radical change. Beneath our dramas and conflicts is a calm and peaceful mind.
As an activist in a Chinese jail, Kiri Westby used meditation to maintain her peace. Yogi Seane Corn used mindfulness to work with teenage prostitutes in LA. Play therapist Megan Larson says meditation has deeply influenced her work with children.
The book includes insights from visionary leaders, such as the Dalai Lama, Jon Kabat-Zinn and Marianne Williamson. The Unexpected Power of Mindfulness & Meditation is inspiring and enlightening. Discover how to transform your life from the inside out!
This is so awesome, I love this book! – Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan
Treat this book as you would a cookery book. You wouldn’t merely read recipes with approval, you’d try them out. Like cookery, meditation only makes sense if you put it into effect. – The Dalai Lama, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
Ed and Deb remind us all just how important it is to look after the health and happiness of the mind. With warmth and humor they show us how to integrate the timeless qualities of awareness and compassion into everyday life.– Andy Puddicombe, founder HEADSPACE
Reading this book is itself a powerful meditation. Without even trying, you effortlessly go deeper into your mind and heart. – Professor Robert Thurman
I can be as nuts as the next person, living in a world like we live in with the craziness and chaos. It takes work to retain our sanity in the midst of all that, and to me meditation is the most powerful tool for doing so. – Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author A Return to Love
If there is one book you read about Meditation this should be the one. Hear about some of the cool people who do it, why you should do it, and how, through the practice of meditation, you will be able to change yourself and become the person you wish to be.
– Sharon Gannon, Jivamukti Yoga
The pausing has been profound. It has invited me to arrive in the here and now with my child clients, and to accept whatever happens without labeling, judging, or categorizing behavior. – Play therapist Megan Cronin Larson
Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we pay attention to the present moment. It accesses us to core aspects of our mind that our very sanity depends on, as does our capacity to live wholeheartedly in this crazy world. – Jon Kabat-Zinn, Mindfulness teacher
THE ART OF MINDFUL RELAXATION
THE HEART OF YOGA NIDRA
Most of us experience some degree of stress and many are too frustrated and exhausted to deal effectively with life’s pressures. Consumed by the mind’s chatter, we can’t appreciate the beauty and wonder of creation and we lose touch with the real purpose of our lives.
Ed Shapiro trained with the originator of yoga nidra and draws upon the timeless wisdom of centuries of Eastern meditation teachings to offer an in-depth, easy-to-follow path to profound relaxation and relief. By following these techniques, we can truly still our minds, tapping into a tremendous inner source of richness and creativity, and finding the freedom to realize our true potential.
There are many teachers of meditation, but there are few who can so effortlessly translate such profound and ancient techniques as Ed Shapiro. Andy Puddicombe, Founder HEADSPACE
Change can be transformative but if we put it off then we put living on hold, fixed in old ways of being. Ed Shapiro gives us the courage to embrace change. This is a necessary and timely book. Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan
