More About the Author

Tom Von Deck is a meditation trainer, stress management speaker, and author of Oceanic Mind - The Deeper Meditation Training Course and the Deeper Meditation Audio Course. He lives in Prescott, Arizona, USA.

Tom specializes in making meditation a much easier process for busy people and everyone else. He helps the beginner and advanced meditation practitioner discover the right strategies which fit the student's unique temperament, spiritual background, time schedule and lifestyle. Meditation is the art of falling in love. Falling in love depends on compatibility. Therefore, he emphasizes the development of customized meditation techniques and strategies so that the student is fully compatible with every aspect of his/her meditation practice.

Tom learned to meditate in the late 1980s at approximately age 12. Since then, he has studied with many teachers in many traditions. He has learned that meditation is a universal experience which transcends the politics of culture and religion. Meditation is the natural state of mind when the ego is not resisting experience.

I've only just begun to explore meditation and yoga techniques. As a beginner, it's sometimes difficult to know what to expect from either. However, the Oceanic Mind has allowed me to learn very effective breathing exercises and meditation practices which I now incorporate into my daily life. By simply following Tom Von Deck's excellent instructions, I have been able to improve my body posture and energy flow through deep breathing and practicing mindfulness. I can't say enough about this book and the countless benefits that anyone can receive if they approach it with an open mind. I appreciate that Mr. Deck does not preach or even teach in the usual sense. He leads the reader through the basics while also honoring the essential spirit of meditation and yoga. There's no need for a strict program to be adopted because Mr. Deck allows the reader to develop their own natural system of meditation that suits them best. This is a true gem that will help anyone who struggles with anxiety, depression, or just being a person. I have already developed a sense of inner stillness that I never did before and wish to thank Mr. Deck for sharing his gift with the rest of us. :)

This eBook is very well organized and presents great information on the various techniques in an easy to understand manner. There are great how-to tips that I had never heard before. And, of course, he covers the intermediate level meditation subjects - the yogic breath, the inner smile, the breath of fire. I found it time well spent and a great resource after finishing Easy Mantra Meditation For Beginners!

SO MANY TECHNIQUES! This is an absolute must for anyone who likes to have options, or who wants to get into meditation but cannot seem to find something that fits them. This book is great as long as you are willing to be honest with yourself and throw away anything that doesn't work with you. The author makes some great points about how specific symbols can get in the way, but so can specific techniques! For example, the tongue positioning he suggests for each meditation is pretty much impossible for me and would not be surprised if many people are unable to do it comfortably. Throw it away! This is a great resource for those willing to experiment.

I highly recommend this book! Tom Von Deck has written what I believe to be the most concise, down-to-Earth treatise on meditation available. With a no-nonsense approach to explaining many, if not all, of the meditation techniques available to Westerners, he has succeeded in providing a thorough guide - with an appropriate sense of humor - that captivates and holds our interest, without the repetitive over-kill found in so many 'self help' books. This compact style makes it very easy to use as a reference for later - a book this good needs to be re-read many times, and this one will be found alongside Thich Nhat Hanh and Pema Chodron on my shelf. And, as icing on the cake, we are treated to some excellent guidance in Integrative Tuning, which is not often seen in modern Western literature.

Whether you need an introduction, or if, like me, you've been doing something called "meditation" for many years, this book could well change your definition. As Mr. Von Deck makes clear from the start, it is for anyone with a desire for inner peace, from any spiritual tradition, who wishes for a fresh, holistic perspective on deep meditation techniques.

This has to be one of the best books out there on meditation techniques. I am into these types of things and I find that meditation helps me get pass any obstacle in my life, no matter how big it is.

If you are practicing yoga and want to learn more about meditation and how to reach a deepeer level of self-awareness, this book is a must read. I started reading yoga books first, and after I finished Private Yoga Lessons: Yoga for Beginners. Yoga Poses For Beginners That Will Make Your Dog Go "What The...", this book caught my attention. I was glad I bought it.

Meditation, according to author Tom Von Deck, is non-religious and crosses all faiths and continents. It’s all based on nature, and how you view the things in life. Take Pavlov’s salivating dog for example; you associate beds with sleep, so bedrooms may not be ideal. Avoid meditating at night, because meditation is meant to increase concentration, not drowsiness. The book starts with basic exercises for beginners, and progresses to higher levels of breathing and physical exercises.

I've been on Amazon for a long time, and this is the first time I've actually taken the time to write a review. Wow. This guy really knows his stuff. Many of the concepts I've heard touched on in guided audio meditations (for beginners) were clearly explained and expanded here, giving me the confidence to follow my intuition to the next level and into self-guided meditations. This book is going to be re-read and thoroughly enjoyed for years to come and I'm very glad I got the Kindle version of it because it would likely be my most dog-eared book otherwise. The other thing worth mentioning is that the author is very open-minded to all (peaceful, loving & humane) religions/philosophies so this book can be enjoyed by everyone from the most devoted Christians, to Buddhists, to Atheists and everyone in between. It's beautiful. At only 99 cents, it is an absolute STEAL!!!
