"Uniquely comprehensive, this one-stop resource not only describes 35 distinct meditation practices, it also details their historical background and contemporary use, ways to begin, and additional resources. The what and why of meditation generally are discussed, with emphasis on helping each reader discover what particular type of mediator he or she is. Disciplines grounded in Buddhism, Tantrism, Taoism, and Islam are included, as are contemplative prayer, Quaker worship, and shamanism. "Shaking meditation free from the stereotypical image of crossed legs, closed eyes, and bamboo mat" (Natural Health magazine), here are drumming, trance dancing, yoga, mindfulness, labyrinth walking, gardening, and even needle crafts - all explored in a spirit that invites and instructs novice, devotee, and healing professional alike. How to choose an approach? The authors ask questions that steer readers toward options that match their habits, preferences, and needs"--
