Présentation de l'éditeur

If meditation were available in capsule form, it would be the biggest selling drug of all time. It has been scientifically proven to deliver highly effective stress relief, boost our immune systems, and dramatically slow the aging process. It has also been shown to make us much happier and more effective thinkers. Given all the physical and psychological benefits, why aren't more of us doing it? In this thought-provoking and entertaining book, David Michie explains the nuts and bolts of meditation. As a busy professional and a long-term meditator, he also gives a first-hand account of how to integrate this transformational practice into everyday life. Combining leading-edge science with timeless wisdom, Hurry Up and Meditate provides all the motivation and tools you need to achieve greater balance, better health, and develop a more panoramic perspective on life. The idea of infusing our daily schedule with newfound tranquility may sound appealing, but not everyone is temperamentally suited to sitting around in the lotus position chanting "Om." Not to mention the fact that some of us just have very active minds. We'd like to meditate, but we're just not capable of switching off.  The the amazing thing is that it's exactly the people who use the "too busy," "'too hard," and "too hyper" justifications who stand to gain the most from meditation.

HASH(0x902280fc) étoiles sur 5 Great book for beginning meditators 9 août 2009
Par Debra M. Yarrington - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I've tried meditating before and always felt like it just wasn't for me - I just couldn't keep my mind still and didn't feel I was getting any benefits from it. This book is excellent at providing clear, scientific reasons for meditating and explaining the many health benefits that even beginners (whose minds are still jumping about) experience. Then it gives very easy, practical ways to meditate that are actually doable by people whose minds never stop moving. While it also discusses the more esoteric benefits of meditating, I felt its biggest plus was its ability to motivate and explain ways of incorporating meditation into your life without it feeling burdensome.
What I liked most about it was the author's very practical view of meditation - I am already folding down pages and underlining passages for my husband who is very skeptical of anything he considers "alternative". It's the type of book that may even motivate him to meditate.

HASH(0x90231d80) étoiles sur 5 It got me going. 6 février 2011
Par Armando L. Franco Carrillo - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have been thinking maybe I should medidate for at least a couple of years now. At some point I bought "Meditation for dummies", and I could not finish it, nor meditate.

This book has a good approach. It explains the benefits, an easy way to do it, then several ways and finally some encouragement not to give up. I have started to meditate (as the book says, it might take years for me to notice a difference), but the book made it simple.

One last point. Sometimes, I feel an audiobook loses a lot of the content because of the way tables and pictures are narrated. This book has only one illustration of a person sitting with his legs crossed, so you might as well get the audio version.

Hurry Up and Meditate
David Michie
Snow Lion publications, 2008
ISBN 978-55939-306=5

This is a helpful book for anyone interested in the why and how of meditation. If you want to know why you should meditate then begin your journey at chapter one. If you want to know how to meditate then dive in at chapter four.

David Michie writes in an easy conversational style. In the first three chapters he introduces the topic of meditation and the research that has taken place into its physical and psychological benefits. This is presented outside the context of any religious tradition or belief. If you are looking for scientific evidence of the efficacy of meditation you will find it in the first three chapters, before going on to find it in the laboratory of your own experience.

Having shown why you might want to meditate the book goes on to show how.

David Michie writes with an understanding of the practical aspects of developing a meditation practice - when to meditate, for how long, in what posture and so forth. He recommends starting with fifteen minutes. This is important advice. It is a period of time that would be easy for anyone to consistently fit into their day. A short period of meditation each day will have much greater beneficial effect than a longer period occasionally.

David Michie guides the reader through a simple practice of meditation and how to deal with agitation and dullness. He then explains different types of meditation and shows how they can be complementary to each other. he explains the importance of creating a regular daily practice and keeping it light and easy so that it can become part of your life.

David Michie explains that real benefits of meditation come when you're not meditating - in the same way that the benefits of exercise come when you're not in the gym. This is important as it is too easy to misunderstand meditation as a place to experience bliss or peace. it is more important - and more inspiring to find that meditation practice makes a difference in our lives.

The book concludes with a recap of the benefits of meditation and how to troubleshoot your meditation practice.

By the end of the book you will have an understanding of the benefits of meditation, how to meditate, and why you should start now and not delay.

HASH(0x908ec8b8) étoiles sur 5 Good read 5 mars 2013
Par J. Tinsley - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I picked up this after reading Buddhism for Busy People. I found that book to be well written, interesting story, and helpful (5 star). This book although good I think it covers too many areas within the realm of meditation, albeit for the most part he briefly touches on many of those areas. The book I've found most helpful to get started with meditation is Jack Kornfield's Meditation For Beginners. The book includes a CD, which I've found to be quite helpful. Keep in mind that I haven't read many of these types of books. So far I've found Jack Kornfield's most helpful.
