This book is organized into four sections with twelve essays. Part one explores the Buddhist perspectives on meditation and health. Part two covers the science of meditation and there are four essays on this topic. The third part focuses on mindfulness in health care. The final part deals with meditation and spiritual care.
If you are seeking a well-researched and informative book on the subject of meditation in relation to body, mind and spirit you should check out this interesting book.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Chair/Seated Tai Chi, Qigong and Yoga stretching for seniors and the physically challenged).
People who have never meditated should abstain from writing about meditation. Meditation is too big of a subject to tackle it only from the "scientific" point of view. There are very few things that science can thoroughly explain. Meditation is certainly not one of them.
There are good discussions on meditation techniques and methods but he real value in the book is its presentation of what mediation does. A must for those in the medical field.
