Gerald Jampolsky, MD, author of Love Is Letting Go of Fear
Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Opening to Meditation is thoroughly user friendly’ from beginning to end."
Midwest Book Review
Diana Lang understands the fears that block most people from meditating effectively. Her instructions on how to remove them are so simple and delightful that it almost seems unfair that we get results so quickly. Isn’t meditation supposed to be daunting? But the benefits don’t stop there. Lang also understands and gently leads us to the ultimate benefit the experience of the loving reality that already embraces us all.”
Hugh Prather, author of Notes to Myself
What is remarkable is Lang’s distillation process. Because there is nothing worse than a meditation book that keeps you locked in your mind, Lang stripped all florid language and concept away so that the essential nature of meditation is revealed. All that remains is simplicity, beauty, and grace just like our essential Selves.”
A lovely book! Clear, gentle, and practical just like the experience of meditation itself.”
Tobin Blake, author of The Power of Stillness

The book and CD complement each other wonderfully---but either is valuable on its own. What I love is that the author lets the reader define meditation for themselves. She gives them the tools to begin---breathing, focus, observation, openness----and supports them in their journey. You need not worry about "doing it right" ---it's about what's right for you.
What I appreciated most was her reassurance about all the other thoughts that enter your mind when you are meditating. It's okay. Everyone has it. (I had no idea that this was true!) You don't need to "start over" or give up. This was of tremendous value to me, and will keep me on my meditation path.
I also bought this book as a gift. It's perfect.
It could be that I am just not into guided meditation. I started my meditiation practices from reading 8 Minute Meditation: Quiet Your Mind. Change Your Life.. That book contained a lot more information and an 8-week program that worked for me, but it doesn't use a guided CD.
This book seems like a nice gift book for inspiring someone's interest in meditation and its many benefits. Certainly there are plenty of other reviewers who enjoyed this book and got a lot out of it, but it just wasn't quite what I needed to improve my method of meditation.
I look forward to my a.m. meditation now, as it feels like my "sweet friend" is sitting with me. A delicious way to start the day, to remind me who I really am.
