Relaxing into Meditation : Review by Esther Wieringa

"This book got me meditating again, after a long period of only occasionally finding time for it.

It is very down to earth, gentle and practical. It shows you how and why to meditate, starting with simple relaxation exercises (great if you ever have trouble falling asleep), going on to basic sitting meditation and then more advanced techniques such as Giving and Taking, and visualizations. All step by step and encouraging you to take it slowly. It even shows how to make your own mediation cushions.

The techniques come from Tibetan Buddhism, but Buddhism itself is just there as a background, so you don't need to bother with the religious aspects if you don't want to. Just meditate, that will do. ( )"
