Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Michal Levin, a BBC Newsnight broadcaster in London for many years, viewed meditation with complete skepticism -- until she tried it. She was astonished at the amazing insights she experienced, from even her earliest attempt. She has since refined her abilities and taught this straightforward approach to many hundreds of students. Articles by and about her have appeared in the Times, the Daily Telegraph, and the Express. She has authored two previous books, The Pool of Memory and Spiritual Intelligence. Here, she also contributes examples of her own artwork to illustrate and enhance the book's concepts and her personal stories of self-discovery.

Format: Paperback
I have read a number of meditation books and found this one to be only somewhat useful. The book's emphasis was almost entirely
on the chakra system and what each chakra represents.
Only a small number of pages were used to explain the actual meditation, which does guide you through your chakra system to clear the chakras and encourage energy flow. I did find the book helpful and interesting because of this section, but this book is
certainly not a good book for beginners or for anyone not interested in exploring the chakra system.
A large section of the book, deals with group meditation and then
discusses in depth a particular meditation session where each member of the group explains their experience and the author then interprets the member's impressions. I particularly disliked this section of the book, and after reading a few of the member's personal journeys, I totally lost interest in the book. Frankly, the author's "interpretations" reminded me of psychiatric dream analysis and I didn't understand how reading other people's "journeys" could be the least bit beneficial to me.
All in all, this book fell slightly short of mediocre... I believe it could only be truly worthwhile for a select few.

This book is extraordinary! In addition to being the most graphically beautiful book on the subject ever published, it is also one of the most intelligent and thorough. It clearly delineates the most accurate descriptions of energy I have ever read. It describes the chakras and their psychological functioning in a novel and credible way. And it presents meditation in a manner that is very accessible and exciting. The forward by Ken Wilber, the most brilliant mind among all spiritual and consciousness writers, is stunning. Buy this book and savor it for years to come.

Format: Paperback
Michal explains "her" version of meditation, which is basically chakra meditation.
I liked the layout of the book. It is very colorful which goes along with what she talks about with chakras and colors. She uses a lot of her own artwork to illustrate a point she tries to make.
She describes preparing for meditation, turning on the chakras, doing the meditation, turning off the chakras, and then recording the information. She explains that when recording the meditation to not try to interpret what you "see" just record it. She also says do not let others try to interpret what you experienced while meditating.
Why I gave the book a low rating was because she completely contradicts herself. She says don't get interpretations from others than proceeds to offer "interpretations" to peoples experiences that last 40 pages of the book. I have a real problem with authors that can't keep their "opinions" straight.
As far as meditation goes: I didn't learn anything new at all about meditation. I found the book very basic and the key concepts she tries to teach could be summed up into a 10-page pamphlet.
If you like pretty books and colorful artwork then buy this book, but if you want a book with "meat" in it stay away.

Format: Paperback
Michal Levin's Meditation: Path to the Deepest Self is a gorgeous, artful and compelling invitation to enter the temple that we ever are. It is an invitation not only to enter the temple of the Self that dwells within, but also an invitation to reach beyond the preconceived boundaries of how we understand the Self. Michal extends a seeing and knowing hand to the reader who wishes to navigate this Path. Welcoming the reader to a more complete understanding of the relationship between energy and meditation, Michal is a trustworthy guide. Addressing meditation practice from the concentric circles of inward journey to worldly journey, Michal illustrates the Path with her own fluid and tranquil paintings, offering a true light for spiritual investigation. Everyone who values the Path to the Deepest Self will want to have Michal's book on hand to spark and rekindle, through text and image, their own inspiration for practice.

Format: Paperback
This is an exquisite book. Michal Levin's writing is poetic yet scrupulously precise and the artwork both illustrates the text and carries its own profound message.
In addtion to the crystal clear map that she sets out based on her own experience and professional practice, Michal brings us rigorous research including quotations that delight and surprise.
Even if you have meditated or encountered energy work in other forms - read this for a new approach - and be lovingly guided by Michal's unique voice.
This book offers support in taking steps in self-knowledge and healing and is a mirror of Michal's inspirational teachings and seminars.
I felt moved, refreshed and uplifted while reading this. It is more than information - more than a presentation of a method for profound self-discovery - it is, in itself, an energetic inspiration.
