Heavily Meditated by Caitlin Cady is a user-friendly guide to meditation that will appeal particularly to beginners and those who have previously tried this ancient practice and failed. Caitlin’s inimitable, friendly style makes her instructions easy to follow and enables you to build up from as little as a 5 minute session.
Caitlin’s story is a familiar one in this age of busyness and expectations of high achievement. Suffering for a decade from a long battle with Chronic Lyme Disease, compounded by years of depression, anxiety, over-achievement, perfectionism and eating disorders, Caitlin was still determined to live a fast-paced life. In doing so she neglected mental and physical signs telling her to slow down. A complete burn out forced her to change and that change came in the form of meditation.
What meditation is:
- Five fundamental meditation techniques (and which one is right for you)
- Where, when and how to sit
- How to deal with thoughts
- Why meditation is so damn good for you
- How to measure your meditation practice
- How to set goals and get hooked on meditation
- How to upgrade your practice from habit to ritual
The book is filled with exercises, worksheets, cheat sheets and other practical tools as well as personal stories that will resonate with the reader. It will help you to turn meditation into a daily practice and to enjoy the benefits of a more relaxed, purposeful life.
Caitlin passes on her meditation techniques in a friendly, light-hearted fashion that will appeal to all. She carefully sets goals in easy stages that encourage you to relax and let the vibes flow. Supportive and uplifting, the program fits in well with the busiest of lives.
Please give it a go, as I am doing, and feel better able to cope with the stress that life throws at us, especially in these troubling times.
