Présentation de l'éditeur

Meditation is like a love affair with your innermost self. At times it can be ecstatic and entrancing, other times simple and still—and sometimes you might not even feel its profound effects until later.

Now with Meditation for the Love of It, Sally Kempton shares practical secrets to help us turn meditation into an unconditional embrace of the fullness of our experience—on and off the meditation cushion. With the gentle wisdom and compassion of one who understands the nuances of practice, she opens us to the joy of exploring the deep and mysterious inner landscape of the heart, mind, and body.

Drawing on her 40 years as a teacher and a fellow meditator, Sally teaches us how we can connect to our inner longings and creative “shakti” energy to allow the transformative gifts and blessings of meditation to unfold. With playfulness and devotion—two key attitudes in sustaining a daily practice—she shares indispensable guidance for this voyage of self-discovery, including:

· How to tune in to your own “meditation channel,” a bandwidth of tranquillity, energy, and joy

· Why you don’t need a quiet mind to meditate

· How the force known as Kundalini can fuel your practice

· Connecting to your ever-present Inner Beloved to let go of conditioned ideas about yourself and make space for the True Self to come forth

· Ripening your practice beyond technique into the “sweet mysterious expanse of spontaneous meditation”

· More than 20 practices for bringing the peace and insight of meditation into your daily life

“Remember: what you seek in meditation is your own Beloved, your own inner intelligence, your own Awareness, and your own Truth,” teaches Sally. Meditation for the Love of It points us back to our own intimate heart of hearts, our own deepest experience, and the bliss of existence itself.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My new favorite book... 23 janvier 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have been impressed with Sally Kempton for a while now and was disappointed that I could not get a copy of her previous book on meditation. Apparently this is a newly updated and revised edition of that book and it is a gem. The book is enlightening, fascinating, informative and above all INSPIRING. For those of us who have attempted meditation without a teacher or guru but have withered quickly in the face of the daunting loneliness of the meditation cushion, Sally has arrived on the scene to guide us, support us, and provide the companionship so often necessary to weather the storm. After reading this book I was, for the first time, excited about meditation, rather than just viewing it as a drudgery I would at some time finally have to face if I was ever to find peace in this world. I have spent years reading about meditation and minutes actually doing it, but with Sally's guidance there is new hope. Now whenever the resistance arises, I just read a few paragraphs and I am back on track.

Sally is very versed and experienced in the "hows" of meditation and conveys that information in a clear and riveting way, but it is her offering of the "whys" that I find so valuable. No, there are no law of attraction ramblings here or promises of unlimited financial or material abundance, just an offering of the real possibility of finally being comfortable in our own skin and situation in life, which is what we are all after anyway, isn't it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Chicken soup for the spiritually-inclined meditator's soul 3 avril 2011
Par Michael Lichter - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
If you're new to meditation, Sally Kempton's "Meditation for the Love of It" is probably not for you. On the other hand, if you've been meditating for years and have hit a plateau or are not getting as much out of meditation as you feel you should, you may find this book helpful, provocative, and enjoyable.

Kempton observes that the rewards of practicing meditation can decline as it loses novelty and becomes an everyday routine. She recalls a day many years ago when she suddenly recognized that her meditation practice had become rigid, mechanical, and unrewarding. To break out of her rut, she gave herself permission to experiment and play with her meditation practice, incorporating a variety of approaches and deliberately setting aside the advice of teachers who say there is only one correct way to meditate. She also refocused herself on the "ultimate goal" of meditation: "to experience the full emergence of your own pure Consciousness, the inner state of luminosity, love, and wisdom that the Indian tradition calls the 'inner Self' or the 'true Self' or the 'Heart.'" (p. 26) Most of the remainder of the book illustrates how to incorporate these two insights--allowing play, and focusing on the goal--into meditation practice.

A few caveats are in order: As I said at the outset, this isn't a book for beginners. Much of the discussion refers to experiences they will not have had, and the book isn't organized with their needs and concerns in mind. It's also not a step-by-step manual, even though Kempton does include more than 25 exercises and many more tips and guidelines. In addition, Kempton approaches meditation as a spiritual and mystical practice on the order of and sometimes directly involving prayer. Although she makes nods to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam (Sufism), her main influences are Hindu and Buddhist. Rationalists who see meditation as a path to relaxation, simple mindfulness, and non-mystical self-knowledge may be put off by this spiritual/religious orientation.

Here's where I give my big disclaimer: I'm a relative beginner and a rationalist, so I'm not a member of the book's core audience. Keep that in mind when I say that my overall impression of the book is positive, and that, with its combination of personal reminiscence, practical exercises and tips, and religious/philosophical discussion, the book will be very well received by many experienced meditators, especially those who are spiritually inclined.

P.S. This book is a revised edition of "The Heart of Meditation", originally published in 2002.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 wonderful meditation book 30 décembre 2010

This is a superb meditation primer. It is extremely practical, and insightful - a rare book in being an excellent match for a novice or a long term mediator looking to deepen their practice. It is also fabulous in that it offers ways to experiment with and deepen your practice based on your nature and needs. I highly recommend it. Cindy Franklin

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a good book but a little too much for me 23 avril 2011
Par StillWaters - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This book has a lot of great information about meditation. When I ordered the book I was under the impression that the book was going to help make meditation more practical in a person's life and more accessible. Instead the book was obviously geared more toward the advanced meditator. There was just a little too much information on shakti, and everything was explained in sanskrit. For those who want an in depth discussion of these things and how they relate to meditation, this would be a good book for you. Personally, I am not an advanced meditator and I just want to use meditation to be more stress free, happier, etc. I am not on that level spiritually where I want to become as advanced as this book. The author of the book has spent time in an ashram and has been meditating for 40 years and meditates for more than an hour a day. This book seems to be more geared toward those who are making a meditation practice a big part of their life, not just a sidenote.

Also, I found the extensive amount of quotes to be more bothersome than anything else.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good starting point! 14 août 2011
Par Mikka - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have been meditating for less than a year, and this book has given some good (and thorough) basics to start on. Each chapter goes through different subjects, techniques, explanations, and experiences and she neatly ties all these aspects together in each chapter. Kempton explains the use of each of the meditations she provides -often called exercises- as well as useful meditation terms to help you find out what it means, how it applies to meditation and also helps with how you are doing during a session. She relates personal and secondhand experiences of different meditations to the exercises she sets out for you in each chapter.She starts with the basics first, such as breathing and relaxing then shows the reader different techniques you can use to deepen meditation and to gently bring your thoughts and focus back into your meditation, as well as techniques to help cope with or dissipate fear, anxiety or "unwanted" thoughts or emotions. Also, Kempton offers a more detailed explanation of Kundalini in the appendix and also offers some troubleshooting tips in the same section in case you have questions or are in need of help.

I find that she writes very beautifully, and although I wasn't entirely captivated during the reading, I find she does have a good way of informing the reader about the subject of meditation.I am sure she is bound to capture more readers who are in need of help in meditating, and this book is definitely a good starting point for beginning meditators the know very little about the subject.

Just as a side note, although I didn't do many of the exercises, I found that the meditation on "sitting with" your thoughts and remembering them as shakti(energy) really helped me cope with a fear of mine and after maybe 20-30 minutes of doing this I found myself feeling much better and was able to completely make my fear dissapear and go on with my day as if nothing emotionally stressful had happened
to me! I will be sure to keep using this technique when the need arises and maybe do even more of the exercises she outlines in this book.
