Getting in the Gap
by Wayne W. Dyer

The practice of meditation takes us on a fabulous journey into the gap between our thoughts, where all the advantages of a more peaceful, stress-free, healthy, and fatigue-free life are available, but which are simply side benefits. The paramount reason for daily meditation is to get into the gap between our thoughts, and make conscious contact with the creative energy of life itself. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explains the soul-nourishing meditation technique for making conscious contact with God, which the ancient masters have told us about.


The Art of Meditation - Audio CD
by Daniel Goleman

Psychologist Goleman has written half a dozen books, including Vital Lies, Simple Truths, and The Meditative Mind. He also does a regular behavioral science column for The New York Times. His approach to teaching mental techniques is exemplary, both in its practicality of content and in its straightforward manner of presentation. Goleman offers no pep-talks for meditation but cites experimental evidence to support his claim that the practice can produce benefits in bodily relaxation, mental calm, pain reduction and the strengthening of the immune system. He talks listeners through four separate methods: breathing, body scan, mindfulness and walking meditations. E.T. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Stages of Meditation
by Dali Lama

This powerful, far-reaching audio will require focused concentration but will offer much to listeners who are serious about meditative practice. The lesson is grounded in the writings of ninth-century Buddhist scholar Kamalashila, whom the author quotes and discusses with great familiarity. A logical thinking person's guide to meditation, this program will open doors for the Western mind that more esoteric and mystical approaches might not budge. The rich language of the Dalai Lama's writing is immeasurably enhanced by Ken McLeod's deep devotion to the material; McLeod is an acclaimed Buddhist writer and teacher in his own right. An essential resource for meditation students at all levels. T.W. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
