Format: Hardcover
and don't know where to start, this is a great book and CD to get your feet wet. The Japa meditation is simple, calming, and beneficial for mental clarity and peace.
I mostly bought this book because it also contains a CD of a guided meditation called "Japa". I have never formally meditated before with guided imagery, so I thought I would give it a try, especially since I was familiar with Dyer's books and loved his personal style and wisdom. Japa meditation focuses on the sound "Ah", which Dyer notes is a sound common in all names of God, such as Yahweh, Allah, Ra, Jehovah, Krishna, Kali, Yeshua, and so on.
His gentle and soothing voice guides you to visualize 1the first 10 words of the Lord's Prayer (Our Father Who Art In Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name), and then focus on the "gap" between words where there is space and silence. Then, you voice the "Ah" sound along with Dyer. I realize that sound is very healing and sacred, but I personally don't like to verbalize the "Ah" sound along with Dyer. However, by hearing Dyer chant "Ah" between the gaps of the Lord's Prayer, it helps me center in on that "gap" and feel the vibration and Presence of God. I tend to be more visual, so imagining the "space between" helps to cease the mind's incessant chatter.
I highly recommend this book and accompanying CD for greater mental clarity and overall feelings of peace--especially if you have reservations about guided meditations or have never used one before. Getting in the Gap also contains a section of testimonials from those who have had remarkable experience using the Japa meditation.

Format: Hardcover
"For the raindrop, joy is in entering the river..." ~Mirza Ghalib

Have you ever wished you could escape to a place of peace? "The Gap" is a place between your thoughts. It is the place where you can be still and release yourself from the 60,000 thoughts hurtling through your mind during the course of a day.

Meditation can encourage physical healing, reduce stress, eliminate fatigue, make you feel younger, brighten your eyes and complexion, keep you focused on your spiritual connection, alleviate depression, and improve your memory. Meditation also allows you to find some of the secrets of peace. When you are thinking about God, how can you think of problems? How can your heart be anxious when it is freed from pain and sorrow and is resting in an ocean of love.

Once you have experienced this "place of peace/the gap," you can go there again. I first experienced this "space between my thoughts" during the end of a yoga workout. I had no idea you could escape the pain of life in this manner. I felt good for two days after doing the meditation section of the workout.

In this book, there is a CD that allows you to quickly enter the silence without the yoga workout, although I still like putting a fluffy down comforter on the floor as I do when I do yoga workouts. I was encouraged to learn that there is no "correct posture" or place for meditating. I actually meditate better when lying flat on my back. You could be sitting in your chair at work with your eyes closed during a 10-minute break, you could be at home, on a plane, or you could be out in nature.

The book has six chapters explaining Japa Meditation and shows how this form of meditation can affect your life in a positive way. The meditation CD is in a little envelope at the back of the book.

Format: Hardcover
I have been a fan of Dr. Dyer for nearly 20 years and I know that I have everything he's written. Every book/CD was very special and unique ---with great positive energy. However, I didn't find this one any different than Meditations for Manifesting: Morning and Evening Meditations to Literally Create Your Heart's Desire. But, if you don't already have Meditations for Manifesting..., I'd recommend Getting in the Gap...

Format: Hardcover
I've read and listened to most of what Wayne Dyer has produced. However, in the past several years Wayne has arrived at a profound point where he has been able to put together highly complex concepts together in a rather easy to understand and practice package. If you do not meditate, this is encouragement to do so and a follow along vehicle to get you going. The point that any spiritual person will tell you is that you really should meditate every day. Meditation, will change your life and improve the quality of it tremendously. I also recommend his new book and tape, Power of Intention, which is an important companion to this wonderful book/tape. Through a relazaton and quieting of the mind and body can we observe and realize our nature and the trueth of this all.
There may be other more complex meditation techniques such as pranyama and etc. which is really for the serious student of various traditional teachings. However, for the lay person that wants to save themselves a lot of time...this book/tape and power of intention are beautifully presented and simple to understand and do. But, don't be fooled by its apparent simplicity and think that it lacks depth. Read the book, listen to the tape/cd and feel good....and know the trueth. Connnect to, experience and realize the limiteless power of the source that makes this and all that we can possibly imagine a reality.
Best Wishes...
