If meditation was available in capsule form, it would be the biggest selling drug of all time. It has been scientifically proven to deliver highly successful stress relief, boost our immune systems and dramatically slow the aging process…Given all the physical and psychological benefits, why aren’t more of us doing it?
Many people are aware that meditation is a useful life tool, but if you have never tried mediating, nor been taught to meditate, the idea of starting can be a little daunting. Hurry Up and Meditate is an excellent beginner’s guide to the nuts and bolts of meditation.
From an exploration of the physical and psychological benefits of meditation, the book moves into guidelines for how to meditate, as well as exploring different types of meditation, and ways to improve your meditation practise. Author David Michie is obviously passionate about his subject, but he avoids being preachy or talking down to readers. Instead, we are invited to share his passion and encouraged to try meditation for ourselves.
