8 Minute Meditation: Quiet Your Mind. Change Your Life.
Marie's Review While not a new book, 8 Minute Meditation remains the quintessential guide to meditation for the uninitiated. This is the book for anyone who has ever been drawn to meditation for its ability to help quiet and focus the mind, but was afraid to try it for fear that they would have to adopt a new religion, sit cross-legged, or spend hours a day in practice. It’s also for anyone who has ever said “I could never do that; I just can’t focus long enough.” While meditation does have its roots in Eastern wisdom, Davich skips the Zen and Buddhist philosophy and focuses on how to meditate. In fact, he shows you eight different slants on the theme, or “ways to meditate”, and suggests that you spend a week on each of the techniques and then decide which ones are for you.
