During his first few years of meditation, Jeff Warren spent his time “pinging around in a lather of ADD-powered excitability, jumping from teacher to teacher and technique to technique, never sure what [he] was doing or why.”
Now Warren, coauthor of the New York Times best seller Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, offers suggestions for practice (meditation practice, movement practice, life practice)—both relevant and exciting.
No matter how many techniques you’ve tried and how many paths you’ve neurotically messed up, Warren helps you start fresh again, exploring the core existential principles that are trained across all meditation techniques. You delve into the dynamics behind mindfulness meditation, lovingkindness meditation, and choiceless awareness meditation. You dig into the magical mysteries of concentration, clarity, equanimity, and friendliness. Then, you build a customized practice that works for you. Warren guides you in a rigorously humanistic way that nevertheless gets downright mystical at the end, because, frankly, that’s where the fun is.
