Thousands of years prove it and Western science backs it: meditation helps us defuse stress, experience greater tranquillity, find a sense of wholeness, strengthen our relationships and face our fears. Meditation connects us to our inner-most feelings and challenges our habits of self-judgment. It helps protect the brain against ageing and improves our capacity for learning new things. Meditation opens the door to real and accessible happiness. And it's as easy as sitting down and taking a breath.
Real Happiness is the most effective, approachable guide to this transformative technique. Beginning with the simplest breathing and sitting techniques, leading teacher of meditation Sharon Salzberg distils 30 years of experience and shows how to start and maintain an effective meditation practice. With clear lessons on concentration, mindfulness and lovingkindness laid out in the book and audio, you'll see that transforming your life can be achieved in 20 minutes a day.
It's not religious, it's not esoteric - this book will help you find resilience, peace, clarity and balance with 12 simple practices.
