Practiced throughout the world for thousands of years, meditation has become increasingly popular. Today, everyone from holistic healers and spiritual teachers to overworked mothers, stressed-out students, and caffeinated businesspeople are taking the time to engage in mindful contemplation. Harnessing the power of meditation - or mind training - offers many benefits both mental and physical. How to Meditate uses a friendly, heavily illustrated approach to make an activity that is both art and science easily comprehensible and infinitely practical. Author Paul Roland describes a full range of strategies and activities, including basic relaxation, breathing techniques, creating a personal sanctuary, visualization, activating the chakras with color, and using affirmations and mantras to help invoke the meditative state.
