Product description

Review

"Bob Sharples offers equal parts practicality and inspiration through grounded step-by-step techniques for calming the mind and opening the heart --- not just on the cushion but for every moment of our busy lives. A great primer for anybody with a body, a mind, a heart and a bit of curiosity."--Cyndi Lee, author of OM Yoga

"This book speaks to the reader in a warm voice and simple language for understanding the often confusing topics of meditation and relaxation practices. It is a good and friendly introduction for exploring the landscape of the inner life."--Dr. Jeff Brantley, Duke Medical School, author of Calming Your Anxious Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Anxiety, Fear, and Panic

"There's a very large and growing body of scientific research on the medical and psychological benefits of relaxation exercises and meditation. Until now though it's been difficult to find a clear, accessible book that introduces readers to the whole range of exercises from this inner science of training the mind. Sharples book provides clear, practical, understandable guidance to methods for physical relaxation, training attention, increasing mindfulness, visualization, healing meditations, and increasing positive emotions. For those new to such practices, Sharples' book will be a great introduction, and for more exerienced practitioners it will provide a reminder to reconnect with practical approaches to deepen their meditations."--Lorne Ladner, author of The Lost Art of Compassion

"Non-Dogmatic, ecumenical, comprehensive, pragmatic! Bob Sharples' book, Meditation and Relaxation in Plain English, is one I can recommend without hesitation or qualification to all those who seek information about meditation practice and who are turned off by sectarian proselytizing! I especially am grateful for his emphasis on the necessity to integrate relaxation into meditation practice, an aspect too often ignored or even denigrated. You can bet it will be on the recommended book list I offer my students."--Frank Jude Boccio, author of Mindfulness Yoga --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
