Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation: A 28-Day Program Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thousands of years prove it, and Western science backs it: Meditation sharpens focus. Meditation lowers blood pressure, relieves chronic pain, reduces stress. Meditation helps us experience greater calm. Meditation connects us to our innermost feelings and challenges our habits of self-judgment. Meditation helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity for learning new things. Meditation opens the door to real and accessible happiness.

There is no better person to show a beginner how to harness the power of meditation than Sharon Salzberg, one of the world's foremost meditation teachers and spiritual authors. Cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, author of Lovingkindness, Faith, and other books, Ms. Salzberg distills 30 years of teaching meditation into a 28-day program that will change lives. It is not about Buddhism, it's not esoteric-it is closer to an exercise, like running or riding a bike. From the basics of posture, breathing, and the daily schedule to the finer points of calming the mind, distraction, dealing with specific problem areas (pain in the legs? falling asleep?) to the larger issues of compassion and awareness, Real Happiness is a complete guide. It explains how meditation works; why a daily meditation practice results in more resiliency, creativity, peace, clarity, and balance; and gives twelve meditation practices, including mindfulness meditation and walking meditation. An extensive selection of her students' FAQs cover the most frequent concerns of beginners who meditate — Is meditation selfish? How do I know if I'm doing it right? Can I use meditation to manage weight?

Review:

"Salzberg speaks from experience…an extraordinary teacher." O, The Oprah Magazine

Review:

"Reading Real Happiness, I feel as if I have made a new friend, or been reunited with an old one. Sharon Salzberg brings meditation to life and, through her grace, shows us how we can come alive, as well. This is a masterful work: deep, warm and engaging. I want to give it to everyone I know." Mark Epstein, MD author of Thoughts without a Thinker and Going to Pieces without Falling Apart

Review:

"We've seen a few attempts at such a complete teaching of the Buddhist meditation practice and way of life but none has accomplished the high skillfulness of Sharon Salzberg's remarkably clear transmission of the adventure of awakening. A 28-Day Plan for catching up with yourself by one of our most heartfull teachers, a presence partially responsible for bringing Buddhism to the West. A thoroughly modern gift from 2500 years ago by one of our favorite teachers." Stephen Levine, author of Who Dies, and A Gradual Awakening

Synopsis:

One of the world's foremost meditation teachers and spiritual authors distills 30 years of teaching meditation into a 28-day program that will change lives. This guide offers 12 meditation practices, including mindfulness meditation and walking meditation.
