Jewel in the Lotus
By Rob MacGregor
Over the past few decades, meditation has evolved from a fringe practice to a mainstream stress-reduction technique that your family doctor might recommend. But how do you enter the doorway to a meditation practice if you don’t have time to join a class? You begin by taking up a solo practice, squeezing in five to twenty minutes here and there. However, meditating on your own tends to leave unanswered the daunting question of how you quiet your mind. That’s where Jewel in the Lotus: Meditation for Busy Minds will help. The book provides all that is needed to begin a practice in an easy-to-read style with a variety of techniques as well as anecdotes from the author’s years of practice and teaching. Readers will appreciate the spiritual, but non-dogmatic, non-religious style that pervades the author’s teachings.
