Summary

In Meditation Now or Never, Steve Hagen, a Zen priest and best-selling author of Buddhism Plain and Simple, provides an accessible and thorough manual on meditation for both newcomers and experienced practitioners.

In the modern world, our lives are more frenetic than ever. We live with a burning sense that we have to get something done. But what do we really achieve? And why are we never satisfied?

This book is an invitation to switch off and to enjoy stillness - right now. Steve Hagen offers simple practices that avoid needlessly complicating meditation; highlights where many of us get stuck in meditating - and how to get unstuck; and, above all, focuses on meditation not simply as a spiritual technique but as a way of living.

Best book on meditation. Print & Audiobook = great.

This is the best book on meditation. Ive read many and practiced for a long time. I read this years ago and when i saw on audible i listened. It actually works better as an audiobook. 5 stars in every way. Do yourself and our planet a favor, listen/read and practice.

Outdated?

Some parts are outdated and out of sync with "modern" techniques and views on meditation. Ref: "Get some headspace" by Andy Puddicombe.

As e beginner (8 months of daily meditation) this book complicates meditation for a beginner.

I did not find i useful compared to other "teachers".
