Modern Meditations to Free the Mind and Unleash the Spirit--at Work, at Home, at PlayBook - 2001
Meditation, says Pragito Dove, is not mystical mumbo jumbo but an enjoyable and uncomplicated way to link the sacred with our day-to-day existence, a mini-vacation we can treat ourselves to in the midst of our busy, overstressed lives. Inspired by the author's highly successful and popular series of noontime workshops with overstressed lawyers, stockbrokers, and bankers in San Francisco's financial district, Lunchtime Enlightenment adapts ancient traditions-both eastern and western-into a thoroughly modern and accessible approach. Blending spiritual and emotional wisdom with motivation, practical tips, and strategies, Lunchtime Enlightenment shows that meditation can be fun, accessible, and immediate. The author introduces a wide range of techniques, including many unique approaches to releasing stress-from "grounding" meditations that can center us on a lunch break to a smiling exercise to awaken our compassion, to "dancing" practices that can release tension. The book concludes with a flexible plan to help all kinds of people-from beginners to advanced-develop an individualized practice to meet their needs and discover the calm pool of peace within.
