well-explained each concept

Benjamin W. Decker's "Practical Meditation for Beginners" is a beautiful initiation into the practice of meditation for both beginners and adepts alike. With absolutely eloquent writing, tangible exercises, and ethereal artwork, this book is a must-have for anyone on the path to self realization, and/or looking for more calm and clarity in their life experience. I highly recommend this lovely book to anyone who is a seeker, and hoping to cultivate a deeper relationship with the life-enhancing practice of meditation.

Very impressive Book

I tried meditation apps before, and always found some benefit to them, but then quit using them shortly thereafter. This book was my first attempt at non-guided meditation (meaning no audio recording talking to me as I meditated). It was fantastic. The descriptions are simple and easy to follow. The writing is concise and gets you into meditating as quickly as possible. The 10 different approaches are also great as I found some that worked wonderfully, some that were okay, and some I didn't care for. I expect everyone is different, so getting a bit of diversity seems really valuable. It certainly was for me. Anyway, I have bought 2 additional copies to give to friends. Highly recommend this book as a jumping off point for meditation.

I’ve been waiting for a book like This

This book is the ideal start for anyone embarking on a meditation practice. I find it is also great for those interested in expanding their knowledge base of the various types of meditation, and great tools on how to incorporate them. A must have book for anyone into meditation, and it’s been very well received as a gift as well!

An excellent overall guide for everyone

Extremely helpful. Very clear and precise instructions, while allowing for complete personal freedom, to develop your own style of meditation. Answers many questions about the practice, I've been overcome with stress lately and this book really helped me find something that works on reducing it. I have started guided meditation and love it. I recommended this book

An excellent overall guide for everyone

This book does a nice job of making meditation both understandable and accessible to the mainstream. I read this book each day and tried everything one step at a time and sometimes took longer with certain lessons. I found I could heal my pain through meditation very easily. It turns out my mind is very good at healing, who knew. This book has not only put me on a path to mindfulness which I had no knowledge of I can also cure myself. Vern is easy going and gets to point and that really works for me. I have referred this book to many people already and will continue to share meditation and mindfulness with the world.
