Jack Kornfield explains in an easy-to-understand way how to meditate, and he also talks about many of meditationís benefits to our lives. Meditation for Beginners is a must have book for anyone interested in self-improvement and for anyone who wants to live a wiser and fuller life.

Meditation helps us to develop awareness and mindfulness of our whole being - body, mind, and soul. It is a way of opening the mind and becoming wholly receptive to what is around us in the moment. To meditate awakens in each one of us the capacity to live more wisely and more fully. Meditation quiets the mind, reduces tension, and heals the body. It trains us to be present in every moment with awareness and clearer understanding. The main point is not to get somewhere, but instead to be where you already are—this is the true essence of —meditation.
