HOW TO MEDITATE LESHAN PDF

Shelves: meditation LeShans book is a secular and scientific guide to meditation. By secular, I dont mean to suggest that its devoid of mention of religion. On the contrary, How to Meditate delves into a wide variety of meditation styles that have roots in religion, and it quotes from spiritual teachers across a range of religions--including the mystic branches of Christianity and Islam. How to Meditate is readable to the general reader, except perhaps for chapter 11, which deals with using meditation in psychotherapy.

Shelves: meditation LeShans book is a secular and scientific guide to meditation. By secular, I dont mean to suggest that its devoid of mention of religion.

On the contrary, How to Meditate delves into a wide variety of meditation styles that have roots in religion, and it quotes from spiritual teachers across a range of religions--including the mystic branches of Christianity and Islam. How to Meditate is readable to the general reader, except perhaps for chapter 11, which deals with using meditation in psychotherapy. He tells the reader of the mental and physical benefits of meditation as they are discussed in the scientific literature.

In other words, if you think that meditation is only for hippie-types who believe in auras and astral planes, this book may convince you otherwise. There are a couple chapters devoted to ideas that people believe that both have little evidence of grounding in reality and which detract from meditation. This includes ESP, auras, strange maps of reality, and guru-worship.

The core of the book is chapter 8, which explains how to do meditations of eleven different kinds. The first ten are all types of structured meditation, and an earlier chapter is devoted to distinguishing structured from unstructured approaches to meditation. There is also an earlier chapter that discusses a broad taxonomy of meditation and sub-classes of meditation.

The book is logically arranged for the most part. It begins with a chapter on why one should meditate.

This first chapter sets up two chapters that deal with the psychological and physiological effects of meditation. There is one oddity of organization. It would seem these two chapters should go together as they both deal with things that detract from meditative practice, and not with the central chapter wedged between them.

One of those chapters is the aforementioned chapter for psychotherapists and the other deals with the social significance of meditation. The last chapter before those that I found superfluous, however, is one addressing the question of whether one needs a teacher to learn meditation. This pro and con discussion seems like a good way to end this book. There is a long afterword by Edgar N. I suspect that if page count were not a concern the book would have ended on the chapter that talks about decisions about a teacher.

The last two chapters and the Afterword seem to have been added for the twin-fold purpose of hitting a target page count and to add a couple niche audiences—namely students of psychology and fans of Edgar N.
