Today we have Ngakma Nor'dzin's book, Relaxing into Meditation.
Described by one reviewer as "the best book on meditation I've ever read", Relaxing into Meditation is an accessible guide to relaxation and meditation.
Relaxing into Meditation begins with relaxation and breathing techniques specifically aimed at creating relaxation of the body and calmness of mind before embarking on meditation practices which may be more demanding. In this way it provides a place where anyone can begin, without any prior experience.
Relaxation techniques and breathing exercises enable us to be calmer human beings. Through learning to quiet the breath and relax the body, we can approach the circumstances of our lives in a calmer and more relaxed manner. Discovering relaxation offers the opportunity to begin to practice meditation.
Meditation enables us to unravel unhelpful emotional fixations. Our intellect can become clearer and more focused through allowing the chatter of our minds to subside. We can discover the nature of who we are at a deep and profound level through meditative practice.
As well as explaining relaxation and meditation, Relaxing Into Meditation also describes how to make aids to practice including various styles of cushion and a Tibetan sitting strap.
Relaxing into Meditation is illustrated throughout, showing the postures that are used in each of the practices.
The book can be bought from Amazon.com (http://bit.ly/nrprimzus) and Amazon.co.uk (http://bit.ly/nrprimzuk).
