More About the Author

Beth Banning is a best-selling author, inspirational speaker, and spiritual catalyst who lives in California with her husband, their cat, and their six pound poodle.

She was born in New York City and from a very young age could sense the feelings of people around her, felt kundalini energy running through her body, and experienced other unusual events that she didn't understand. The well-meaning adults in her life told her she was depressed and that these experiences were just her imagination.

Growing up in this cloud of ignorance and disbelief these gifts were buried and unable to flourish and so she was left confused and lonely.

As a young adult she recognized the same sense of confusion and loneliness in others and became passionate about helping people better understand themselves and those around them.

Later in life she took this passion into her work with her husband Neill and co-founded Focused Attention, Inc. She has written numerous books, co-created the Pathway to Personal Freedom, and the Art of Conscious Connection Seminar Series.

After many years of integrating this consciousness shifting work into her own life and teaching it to others, she experienced a profound reconnection with God that turned her life upside down. This radically changed the way she perceives the world and functions in it. Beth now lives her life guided by her inner source of divine wisdom. She is committed to helping others discover this for themselves and fully experience the essence of who they truly are.

Meditation for Beginners is a great guide for anyone wondering why they should meditate, what meditation is and isn't, and to learn about different styles of meditation, so that they can choose a meditation style that best suits them. Clear, well-written, easy to read. I became more relaxed and more meditative just reading the book! I like how simple the author makes everything. If you want a book with great meditation basics, that makes it so easy you know that even you can try meditation, this is the one to get.

Everybody's talking about meditation these days, but for most of us it still seems a mysterious practice beyond our abilities of concentration and discipline. No more! Beth Banning's clear explanation and step-by-step coaching offers the simplicity and power of meditation to anyone curious about sampling its benefits. Highly recommended!

It's a straight forward and basic introduction to meditating for anyone who isn't familiar with how to get started with it. Short and easy read.

I was always one of those impatient types, who preferred to scream at the heavens, "Why ME???" rather than sit cross-legged on the floor and listen to my mind scream at me. Well, at least until I learned a better way. This book is generous in ideas, and the author is generous in spirit. What a great combination!

This little E-book will answer every question a new meditator will have about beginning their practice.
I appreciate its simplicity. It is a fast and easy read and very informative on the history, benefit, and technique of meditation. I loved the variety of practices offered, mantra, visualization, candle, zen buddhist. What a beautiful comprehensive book to get you started to more peace in your life.

Whoa, this was a timely book. For some reason, reading Beth Banning’s description of the religions that use meditation, the different types of meditation and the science behind meditation made me feel motivated to try meditation again. Having just worked all weekend, I think it will really help me feel better. Her common sense attitude combined with examples and scientific results makes it almost a no-brainer to start meditating (no pun intended).

So here's what I did. I searched on YouTube for meditation music, then I used the first technique that Beth recommends in the book (which I have never heard of before, and I'm a psychologist who used to use hypnosis). I wrote a word, in my mind on a piece of paper. Then I felt I was diving with the dolphins in sapphire blue water, looking for my word on the paper. I felt very deeply relaxed, the more I swam around effortlessly. I found the piece of paper and was just starting to read my word clearly when the music ended. I. FEEL. FANTASTIC. I'm going to do this at least once a day. Why did I wait so long?

I have a fast-paced schedule with a lot of deadlines, and struggle with controlling my blood pressure. I knew that I had to be aware of taking time to relax and slow my mind and body (and blood pressure) down, but wasn't sure how to go about doing that. Beth Banning's book was perfect for being introduced to the world of meditation, and helped answer all of the questions I had about it. It was very thorough, and bridged the gap between me knowing nothing about meditation other than closing my eyes and breathing deep, to really maximizing it's beneficial aspects to my mind and body.
