From the Publisher:
Thousands of years prove it, and Western science backs it: Meditation sharpens focus. Meditation lowers blood pressure, relieves chronic pain, reduces stress. Meditation helps us experience greater calm. Meditation connects us to our inner-most feelings and challenges our habits of self-judgment. Meditation helps protect the brain against aging and improves our capacity for learning new things. Meditation opens the door to real and accessible happiness.
There is no better person to show a beginner how to harness the power of meditation than Sharon Salzberg, one of the world?s foremost meditation teachers and spiritual authors. Cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, author of Lovingkindness, Faith, and other books, Ms. Salzberg distills 30 years of teaching meditation into a 28-day program that will change lives. It is not about Buddhism, it?s not esoteric?it is closer to an exercise, like running or riding a bike. From the basics of posture, breathing, and the daily schedule to the finer points of calming the mind, distraction, dealing with specific problem areas (pain in the legs? falling asleep?) to the larger issues of compassion and awareness, Real Happiness is a complete guide. It explains how meditation works; why a daily meditation practice results in more resiliency, creativity, peace, clarity, and balance; and gives twelve meditation practices, including mindfulness meditation and walking meditation. An extensive selection of her students? FAQs cover the most frequent concerns of beginners who meditate??Is meditation selfish?? ?How do I know if I?m doing it right?? ?Can I use meditation to manage weight??
Sharon Salzberg discovered Buddhist meditation as a teenager, and found that it provided emotional healing and centering after a chaotic childhood of foster homes and intense self-doubt. In the mid-1970s, Salzberg started conducting meditation seminars and retreats, teaching both the insight (Vipassana) meditation technique and loving-kindness (Metta) meditation technique. She co-founded the Insight Meditation Society. With a down-to-earth personality and writing style, she has introduced Buddhist meditation and philosophy to countless individuals through her books, magazine articles, cassettes, and retreats.
