A Woman's Book of Meditation
The statistics say it all: A regular meditation practice not only reduces stress but also reduces your resting heart rate, oxygen consumption, and sympathetic nervous system. And you can receive all of this from one twenty minute practice a day. But, despite the news, many women don't meditate, or don't meditate on a regular basis. It can be intimidating when you're trying to learn the basics and it seems that many meditation practices don't cater to the many unique needs of women. In A Woman's Book of Meditation: Balancing the Feminine Psyche (Avery, 2006), author Hari Kaur Khalsa, an internationally known Kundalini yoga teacher, explains the basics of meditation from a Kundalini perspective. You'll discover the basics to help prepare for a practice, plus more than thirty different meditations to choose from. Speaking from the feminine need for balance, Hari's offerings include meditations to find emotional balance, mantras to help conquer fear, and soothing practices to induce peaceful sleep. Whether you have a practice or are looking to start one, A Woman's Book of Meditation will motivate, inspire, and ultimately quiet your mind.
