When it comes to meditation practices, the body is as important as the mind—a fact that may come as a surprise to the many people who regard meditation as a strictly mental activity. But, as Will Johnson shows, the physical aspect of the practice is far too often underemphasized. The alert-yet-relaxed sitting posture that is the common denominator of so many meditative techniques is a wonderful aid for clearing the mind and opening the heart, but it also works to activate the natural healing energies of both body and mind. The author offers guidance and exercises for working with the posture of meditation and advice on how to carry its benefits on into all the rest of life.

A very good book even for experienced meditators

A very good book even for experienced meditators. It is the first book i read explaining the unity of body and mind. Many books concentrate on how to settle the mind without explaining the gradual changes to the body as a result of meditation. This book explains the importance of a right posture before any healing process resulting in a stable mind. If you believe that the body is part of the mind, it is a very important part. The book is the next best thing to a live teacher which is not always available near you.

What a rare and brilliant book this is. Will Johnson must have been born to write this. Every word is authentic, and given the narrow topic choice, a lot of depth is required and easily achieved by the author. I would have read at least 30 books on spiritual development and personal development in the last 12 months and this book is the easy stand out. I don't normally write reviews but decided to make an exception here. Very insightful. A must read. Well done Will!
