Meditation and mindfulness aren't easy. Most people quit, usually frustrated by problems concentrating -- the result of outdated, ritualized, dogma-based instruction. Here is a complete and practical guide that takes a groundbreaking new direction in the instruction of meditation and mindfulness. Over a decade of research at the Roosevelt University Stress Insitute has found that learning one type of meditation, meditation, or relaxation is not enough. Different approaches have different effects and work for different people. A balanced combination is more effective than a quick fix of one technique or ritual. In this program, the student first masters six foundation skills of yogaform stretching, muscle relaxation, breathing exercises, autogenics, and imagery. Then simple and fun instructions guide one through the adventure of developing a personally tailored relaxation and meditation program, one that is based on individual strengths and needs.
