Relaxing into Meditation : Book review by Gary Stone

Relaxing into Meditation by Ngakma Nor’dzin takes one on a journey through a myriad of simple and more complicated meditation techniques. Using this reference on our yoga and meditation holidays in Spain, I found the various groups wanting to dip into the book to find relevant and pertinent exercises to suit their differing needs.

Well planned, and obviously written with tremendous authority, the book always keeps the end user in mind, not using high-level language to confuse the reader.

Each meditation technique combines an actual reference to classes, in which the students have practiced these methods.

I am currently working my way carefully through all these techniques, gradually making use of the simple but clear line drawings, which help with postures and styles.

Wherever you are on your meditation journey you will find this book a constant companion allowing you to discover many enjoyable and informative methods.

An easy to digest guide to meditative practices for calming the mind, nurturing creativity, rejuvenating the spirit, and nourishing the soul.

Having read it many times now, I highly recommend this publication for novice to advanced meditators alike. I have used the book when delivering my taster sessions to meditation in our yoga breaks in Spain having great success in the process.



Gary Stone and his wife Nicole have been practising Yoga since 1998 and teaching since 2000. In 2003 they moved to Spain to offer Yoga retreats especially for people suffering from the stresses of a busy working life.
