Roche has pulled off something amazing here: simple, powerful guidance COMBINED WITH elegant, common-sense sophistication. (Which brings to mind that wonderful aphorism, "There's nothing common about common sense.")
In other words, there's a precision to Roche's description of meditation techniques that far surpasses other writers and meditation teachers. The language he uses is irresistible; it becomes part of your thinking, spicing and invigorating your own personal meditation, and � this is the point � MAKING IT YOUR OWN.
The beauty of "Meditation Made Easy" is that Roche relates his points to everyday, earthy experience, so that they seem obvious. But they weren't obvious until he pointed them out.
Reading his book with pen in hand, you'll experience over and over those "Aha!" moments of clarity: "Aha! I finally get it! That's how it is for me. Funny I never saw it that way until now ..."
You won't be the only one getting it.
Meditators are finally catching on to Roche. Not to mention meditation (and yoga) teachers.
Over the last couple of years, especially, I've seen Roche's words on the instinctive naturalness and subtle sensuality of meditation, come into use by other writers. (Who else is making meditation this fun, this healthy, and this sexy?)
Keep your (third) eye on Lorin Roche. Grab this book today.
I've been trying to meditate for over twenty years. I had given up and convinced myself that I was one of those people who couldn't do it because I could never quiet my thoughts. I'm meditating every day now and I love it. I'm not trying to control or stop my thoughts anymore. I don't want to try and tell more because I'd just be paraphrasing the book and it's too good a book for that. I'd be doing it a disservice.
Believe me this is a whole new take on meditation, it works and it is easy.
Just get this book!
It seems almost churlish to point out some nits, but a better editor would have caught the confusion between "palate" and "palette"; the claim about onomatopoeic nature of Sanskrit seems dubious: "shanti" does not sound more peaceful to my ear than English "peace", or Russian "mir"; and "ma" as the sound of the feminine is not the universal "primordial" - just Indo-European. Finally, some people may look in vain for a cookbook or week-by-week guide - a simple one might have been helpful. But, all in all, we are dealing with a wonderful life-affirming book of the genre, a delight to read even for non-meditators.

Aha! This is a book that is so affirming of what we already know on some level. It's not overly gushy but still has depth in its ideas of self-betterment and meditation. Read morePublished 8 months ago by K. Hughes
Very interesting read. A new perspective for me. We all meditate in some form or fashion, we just don't realize it.Published 13 months ago by Peter Gailey
