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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
The Meditation Bible is a very good reference or resource for someone that is starting a meditation practice and would like to quickly explore the concepts and the basic practices. The second part of the book, Meditation Directory, does a good job of providing the concepts and practices relative to: calming & centering, living mindfully, healing body, mind, spirit, get moving, love and compassion, problem solving, dreams, and connecting to the divine. It's the best "fast" reference book I know that provides a quick glimpse of meditation. Not a meditation for dummies, but a book for the beginner - and we all were beginners at one time.
