    Product Description

    Meditation helps us defuse stress, experience greater tranquility, find a sense of wholeness, strengthen our relationships and face our fears. Meditation helps sharpen focus, lower blood pressure, and reduce chronic pain. Meditation helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity for learning new things. And it's as easy as sitting down and taking a breath.

    The Power of Meditation is the most effective, approachable guide to this transformative technique. Beginning with the simplest breathing and sitting techniques, Sharon Salzberg, distilling thirty years of teaching experience, shows how to start and maintain an effective meditation practice. With clear lessons on concentration, mindfulness and lovingkindness laid out on the book and CD, you'll see that transforming your life can be achieved in twenty minutes a day.

    It's not religious. It's not navel-gazing. Meditation will help you engage in the world and will help you find resilience, peace, clarity and balance.

    “Salzberg speaks from experience... an extraordinary teacher.”
    O, the Oprah magazine

    “I often suggest to my stressed-out patients that they meditate, but most don't know where to begin. Real Happiness is the perfect meditation prescription, with everything a first-timer could need.”
    —Frank Lipman, MD, author of Spent?
