Coming Soon... Just Meditation: The Book
Sometimes we just need to stop, take time out, put things into perspective and regain a sense of balance. Sometimes we just need to do nothing, and instead simply be. This has always been the case, but now it would seem to be more important than ever. That’s where meditation comes in.
Meditation is more than merely a tool to help us cope better with the stress of modern life (though it will probably do that). Meditation is about the cultivation of awareness: taking a step back from ourselves, gaining some balance and perspective, and seeing things the way they are rather than as we think they should or shouldn’t be.
This book shows how meditation can help us to live life more fully, with calmness, clarity and compassion. More than just a ‘how to’ manual, this is, above all, a book about why meditation matters.
