Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Millions have heard that meditation is the very best natural medicine for lowering stress and increasing well-being. It has no negative side effects, is free, and requires only a few minutes a day to receive extraordinary benefits. Yet many still find it foreign to their experience and have no idea how to begin. After all, our society emphasizes busyness, competition, and external gratification. And, if you do try it, how do you break through the inner resistance, restlessness, and “monkey-mind” that plague both beginning and advanced meditators?

Meditation teacher Tobin Blakes new book offers easy-to-follow guidelines and ways to start meditating and deepen your practice. It is designed for both beginners as well as those who already meditate but are frustrated or seek to find fresh ways to approach their practice. The book begins with the basics, such as how to sit, how long to spend, and the various meditative techniques, including zazen, mantra, visualization, and heart, third-eye, and chakra meditation. It then goes beyond the mere forms of the practice to teach readers that the real obstacle to deep meditation is the waterfall of negative thoughts and emotions that runs continuously in the background of the mind, which keeps us from turning inward and going deeply into the stillness. EVERYDAY MEDITATION will teach them how to reprogram that thought stream, providing insights into retraining their own waterfall of thought and real tools for doing so. Each of the 100 original, daily meditations will take readers from theory to experience. The meditations are designed to transform the negative waterfall of thoughts into one based on gentleness, loving kindness, and forgiveness. Their meditative practice will transform from an internal struggle to a quiet, joyous communion with Spirit.

EVERYDAY MEDITATION is not based on any particular tradition but can be used with any tradition or belief system. It is specifically written with our modern challenges in mind, including electronic distractions, stress, and the constant sense of overwhelm. This book will help readers:

turn their minds into their ally

undo restlessness and anxiety

build spiritual relationship

defeat the vicious cycle of attack-guilt-fear

heal the body

overcome depression

find balance, meaning, and life purpose

Synopsis:

Millions know that meditation works to lower stress, increase well-being, and even prevent disease. It has no negative side effects, is free, and requires only a few minutes a day. So why is it so challenging to begin and sustain? Tobin Blake offers innovative ways to start meditating and to invigorate an existing practice. He begins with the basics — how to sit and how long to do it, and various techniques, such as zazen, mantra, visualization, heart, third eye, and chakra. He then lucidly addresses the fundamental and nearly universal obstacles. "It takes a while to adjust to it, and to learn that this new awareness is perfectly safe, and, whats more, brings you real joy." Each of the 100 meditations Blake details takes readers from intriguing theory to personal, powerful, and transformative experience.

Everyday Meditation is the perfect way to find consistency in your meditation practice. Its ideal for beginners (which I am). The daily guidance starts off very basic and grows slowly for 100 days. After the 100 days you have a strong self practice and by picking the days that resonate more strongly with you the book can continue to guide you. I have also been reading it to friends on occasion just for "food for thought."
