Everyone Could Use Meditation!

Holly Sumner is a highly respected Dr. & psychic who has taught me many ways of dealing with stress! This book is another example of her expertise! I recommend it to everyone who is stressed...and Who Isn't!

Think you can't meditate? Think again!

I had tried meditation before and failed, because I was trying to learn the classical "passive" form of meditation, where you are supposed to empty your mind of all other thoughts and focus only on one thing. That simply did not work with my busy mind! In this easy-to-read book, Holly Sumner explains that "active" meditation, where you imagine and visualize whole scenes and events, can be just as effective. The only reason I gave the book 4 stars and not 5, was that some of her meditation scripts are kind of short & I had to add to them quite a bit to create a 15-minute taped session. However there are a few longer scripts here and there. Also, she doesn't provide much instruction on how to effectivly read & record (tape) the scripts for beginners. She talks about so many different ways to meditate, I think anyone could find a method that works for them. Overall, an excellent book!

A "must" for anyone considering meditation exercises.

The secret to meditation is that it's not complicated and has many different paths which can be followed. The Meditation Sourcebook provides step-by-step exercises and directions simple enough to encourage any to meditate, providing lessons which are easy for stress management, relaxation or setting goals.

Meditation for everyone made easy

I'm not a person who is into all this new age stuff. I tend to treat new age theology's with a grain of salt. Not quite believing, but not disbelieving either. But recent events in my life have made me wanting a new way to relax and destress. Of course I thought of meditation. I didn't know a thing about meditation or how to get there to that mystical state you're susposed to achieve when meditating. I buried my skepticism and bought Holly Sumner's book and was pleasantly surprised. It was very easy reading and explained various kinds of meditations. What it wasn't and how you didn't have to struggle to achieve an elusive state of mind. Holly was able to explain how to meditate in clear and simple language. I learned various ways to enter meditation (there truly is no limit) and the different ways meditation can help improve my life. I've learned anyone can meditate without any fancy postures or elaborate rituals. Holly has written a great book that beginners or experts alike. She has something for everyone.

5 Stars. Wow. Best book ever on meditation. Hands down.

Breadth and Depth. Meditation is demystified, made practical and easy to experience. I am thrilled with this book! Spiritual and scientific themes are addressed. The resource guide alone is worth it's weight in gold. I can only recommend that you share this with many many friends! Kevin Hogan Author of The Psychology of Persuasion
