Format: Paperback
"The Meditation Bible" by Madonna Gauding is by far the best meditation book we've come across this year. Packed with 140 individual meditations, the book contains something for everyone. Gauding has gathered some of the best -- and easiest to learn -- meditation techniques in a beautifully designed collection. Beginners and experienced meditators alike will benefit from this handy guide.

Part 1 features a "Before You Begin" section that explains meditation and provides tips for preparation, body positioning, establishing a daily practice, and more. Part 2 features 140 individual meditation techniques described in step-by-step detail. The organization and presentation of the meditation techniques is what makes "The Meditation Bible" so appealing and user-friendly. The techniques are divided into eight categories:

1. Calming and Centering

2. Living Mindfully

3. Healing Body, Mind, & Spirit

4. Get Moving

5. Love and Compassion

6. Problem Solving

7. Manifesting Your Dreams

8. Connecting to the Divine

For each of the 140 techniques found in the book, the author outlines the benefits of the technique, describes the best time to use it, and includes clear and concise instructions for practicing the technique. The majority of the techniques are not oriented toward any specific spiritual path, instead providing practical meditation methods that will appeal to all readers. The techniques found in the section called "Connecting to the Divine" cover a wide variety of spiritual traditions, including Christian, Buddhist, Quaker, Jewish, Native American, Taoist, and many others.

Containing more meditations than I ever knew existed, this book is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to improve their life. Just recently, I was feeling unsettled and anxious, but I couldn't pin down the cause of the feelings. I sat down with my meditation bible and immediately located several topics that set off those inner bells, telling me to focus on those areas. I followed the instructions, meditated, and could feel my anxiety lessen. Solutions soon presented themselves and the source of my aggitation disappeared.

Madonna Gauding is one of my favorite authors. I love her clear, concise prose, substantive content and insightful revelations. I'm a beginner when it comes to meditation, but with this book in my library, I won't remain so for long.

I have meditated for years and teach meditation to people new to it. I use it as a text book due to the variety of meditations. I like that it includes many different spiritual approaches to meditation and it is a resource that can be used as one continues to explore meditation.

Marvelous bedside staple, providing endless comfort, inspiration, and serenity. Every page contains a different meditation you can try, ranging from "Distracted Mind" to "Flowing Water" to "Unconditional Love." The book contains meditations on calming and centering, living mindfully, healing, movement, love and compassion, problem-solving, manifesting your dreams, and connecting to the divine; she also provides an introduction to meditation. Highly recommended if the shelves of your mind could use a little dusting off, if you want a way to incorporate a bit of spirituality into your life, or if you simply want to get back in touch with the simplicity of your being-ness in the world.

The Meditation Bible by Madonna Gauding is a compact book aimed at beginners to meditation. I agree with some of the tips at the beginning of the book, but others seemed grounded in materialism such as buying special pillows or beads to assist with meditation. One only needs a quiet space and some time in order to meditate. A great deal of the book could be described as filler: Text boxes with summaries of what each meditation will benefit, generic introductions to meditations that don’t serve much purpose, repeated instructions on each meditation to get into position, and stock photos for each meditation. The book could easily have been edited down to half its size. Despite those issues, there are some great meditation ideas in here: I plan to edit and redesign quite a few of them for using with a group I lead.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to expand or even start their meditation journey. It gives you so many ideas on what to meditate on for each situation you could face. Everything from very specific to general. Also, this book came a lot quicker than the estimated delivery date which is A++
