Review

"This is a superb collection not only for beginners who would like an exquisite introduction to meditation, but also for advanced practitioners who would like to refine their own understanding of this most precious gift of the great saints and sages of our human family. And if you have not yet started a meditation practice...take up this great experiment in depth, and I promise you, your life will never be the same again."―Ken Wilber, author A Theory of Everything: An Integral Vision for Business, Politics, Science, and Spirituality (Blurb from reviewer)

"For years, I have been seeking a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the world's major meditation practices that I can recommend to students. Now I have one."―Peter Russell, author, From Science to God et al (Blurb from reviewer)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great overview of the major forms or meditation. This is the first time I have seen a book that so intelligently looks at meditation techniques and gives expert opinions about what they do and how they work. Ken Wilbur's intro is brilliant. This book is insightful. With interest in meditation becoming much more widespread in our culture I think that this book is an excellent addition to the many books out there on the subject.

Jon Shear offers an objective, clear description of many approaches to meditation. He's gathered expert teachers of the major systems, and treats them all with the respect they deserve. Very well written!
