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 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 cannot 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. An authentic, accessible, and enjoyable guide to relaxation." — Andy Puddicombe, founder Headspace
