Synopsis

Meditation is rapidly gaining mainstream popularity as a tool for finding peace in daily life, but there are no true gateway books on the market--nothing giftable, and nothing that provides a simple answer to the question, 'What is meditation and why should I do it?' Invitation to Meditation presents the basics in a most enticing way. A beautifully packaged essay of approximately 5K words, it explores the ever more popular expression 'the present moment,' offers descriptions of the physical and mental sensations of meditating, presents its myriad benefits, and--as the title suggests--gently and enthusiastically invites readers to give it a try.Includes a foreword by bestselling author Jack Kornfield.
