We all know that meditation helps to lower stress, reduce anxiety and depression, and can even prevent disease. It is one of the most powerful practices we can take up to discover more joy and meaning in life. Hands down, meditation is the very best of natural medicine, and it has no negative side-effects, no cost, and requires only minutes per day to receive its extraordinary benefits. So why is it so challenging to begin and sustain? Everyday Meditation presents a complete and detailed course on meditative practice, including instruction on Zazen, mindfulness, mantra, visualization, third-eye and chakra meditation, how to sit, how long to meditate, and how to manage thoughts – but the book offers much more. Tobin Blake also examines how to reprogram your inner dialogue, overcome anxiety, heal depression, cultivate spiritual relationships, and stop battling your inner dialogue in order to discover your true Self. It is a guidebook to spiritual awakening and living with purpose and joy.
Tobin Blake’s Everyday Meditation guides you gently into the stream of a healing and life-enhancing meditation practice. The daily practices fit with our busy lives and are never overwhelming, but designed to build confidence and skill one-day-at-a-time. A valuable hands-on guide for beginners, as well as long-time meditators seeking a variety of techniques.” -Donald Altman, author One-Minute Mindfulness and The Mindfulness Code
“This lovely book is a quiet encouragement to the deep peace and healing that meditation brings. It is what each of us–and the whole world–needs now; and the loving spirit in which it is written is, clearly, a gift of meditation. Read it and feel joy; practice it, and be transformed.” -Daphne Rose Kingma, author of The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart and The Future of Love
