Description of this Book

Discover the forty-four laws of life that are the missing link between the desire to meditate and the motivation needed to maintain a regular meditation practice, process the emotional fallout of meditative experiences, and find spiritual fulfillment. Meditation isn't rocket science--but keeping a steady practice can sure feel like it. Many have sought the transformation and mindfulness that meditation promises to unlock, only to get frustrated and discouraged. As it turns out, meditation isn't as easy or relaxing as some claim. Don't Just Sit There! is a profoundly revamped guidebook that will overhaul your meditative practice by acknowledging and helping you work through the not-so-peaceful side of achieving peace. It's organized around the forty-four laws of human experience, with a week-by-week guide to productively processing each one. Centered on identity, purpose, life experience, human nature, expansion, and the world we live in, these laws can become obstacles in moments of quiet solitude, without the tools to properly face them. Meditators of all levels and styles of reflection can benefit from this guidance on how to master and overcome the forty-four laws and establish a lifelong practice. By confronting the emotional, soul-shaking nature of meditation, you can deepen your spiritual understanding throughout your personal life and leave the difficulties of motivation behind.
