At the heart of Paramananda's radical vision is the art of meditation. Enlivened by his love of both the natural world and poetry, he guides us in a threefold process: grounding meditative experience in the body, turning towards experience in a kindly and intelligent way, and seeing through to another way of understanding and being in the world.
Focussing, body therapies, and yoga are growing fields which often have a cross over interest in meditation. Focusing on the body, this book is suitable for broader yoga, relaxation and stress reduction fields in addition to the more traditionally Buddhist and spiritual markets.
This series of essays on Buddhist practice shows how simple exercises, reflections and meditations can awaken us to the magic of being fully present in each moment of our lives.
Provides traditional practices for the readers to learn how to exchange stress and anxiety for calm and clarity of mind, and transform anger and fear into kindness and self confidence. The author guides on meditation with anecdotes and tips, from his experience of teaching meditation of more than 15 years.
How often do we feel we have no time for reflection? Or little time to care for others, or even ourselves? Adrift in our lives, we are pulled further and further away from a sense of who we are. In A Deeper Beauty, Paramananda speaks directly to our hearts about what is truly important to us, whether we are making a cup of tea or sitting at the bedside of a dying friend. Using simple exercises, reflections, and meditations, we can awaken to the magic of being fully present in each moment of our day-to-day activities
Meditate and discover the wisdom that the body holds. Paramananda shows us how to bring a kind and inquiring awareness to our physical experience. Through a variety of thoughtfully led meditations he teaches us how to listen to our bodies, to hear the messages we often ignore. We can quickly feel the benefits in a deeper, fuller and more satisfying understanding of ourselves and our relationships.
To take up meditation is to introduce a powerful force for change into our lives. If we change our mind the world changes too. Whatever our religious belief, meditation can be the beginning of life's greatest adventure. Using the simple traditional practices introduced in Change Your Mind you can learn how to exchange stress and anxiety for calm and clarity of mind, and transform anger and fear into kindness and self confidence.
