MY THOUGHTS: 

Meditation is a pretty common practice as of late, and I for one am a huge fan of it. I’ve only been practicing for a few months and enjoy reading more on the subject often. I though this book was very helpful to me, but was a bit confused during some examples of different types of meditations covered throughout this book. I think that had a lot to do with the wording, but eventually I found myself deciphering the book much easier.

I feel like this is a good book to read if you’ve already been practicing meditation, since it goes a bit deeper into different techniques. I’m not sure I would recommend this one to someone just looking to start out. I absolutely love the sections where common questions were answered. I saw quite a few that have been running through my mind recently. If you need some positive takes on meditation though, I would definitely consider this book.

  1. I never find that I have time to meditate these days, a simple sit down with a ‘lazy’ film is my way to reflect hah! but thank you for recommending this book x

  2. Meditation is probably the only thing that keeps me calm nowadays lol. I’ve read a few books on meditation in the past and honestly I find that it’s helped me grow and become more introspective. I do agree with you that sometimes the wording can be a little confusing in these kind of books, I think that’s what puts people off of meditating x
