A step toward peace of mind is a step in the right direction

The benefits of meditation are boundless: reduced stress and pain, peace of mind, and an improved sense of resilience. But which style of meditation is right for you?

Meditation for Your Life explains the six basic forms of meditation and helps you identify which ones suit you best. Robert Butera, PhD, guides you in establishing a meditation practice based on your person-ality type, life experience, and personal preferences.

The six types of meditation are:

  • Breath
  • Visualization
  • Mantra
  • Devotion, prayer, or intentionality
  • Mindfulness
  • Contemplative inquiry

Prepare your mind with relaxation exercises, conscious breathing, and positive thinking. Discover the six basic forms of meditation, and identify the techniques that work best for you. Use guided questions, exercises, and journaling to personalize your practice.
