In its most basic form, meditation is very simple. But it is also a deep and complex practice that can take years of study to understand and even more to master. This book, the first in a series intended to give a thorough explanation of meditation practice and practical applications for the modern world, will introduce you to the basics of meditation. While most information available about meditation comes down to us through the world's great religions, meditation taught as a secular practice is accessible and helpful to everyone, regardless of religion, race, or ethnicity. Meditation is powerful enough to shed its religious robes and walk out into the world on its own so that it can benefit people of any religion or belief. This book will help you start a powerful and profound practice of working with your mind.
