Spanning a vast realm of topics and mapping the shortcuts and pitfalls along the way, The Power of Stillness invites you to actively explore the depths of meditation through simple daily practices. This hands-on approach takes you beyond theory, religion, and talk and straight into direct experience. The Power of Stillness comes as close as any book could to having a teacher by your side as you learn to meditate, sitting with you each day and gently guiding you through each meditation. The book explores mantras, visualization, chakras, moving meditation, prayer, the breath, guided meditation, dealing with thoughts, and more. Visiting this stillness regularly will help you uncover hidden stores of creativity, improve self-confidence, promote physical health and healing, and provide focus and power.
