Does meditation sound like it only fits in the realm of 'those' wellness, hippy, yogi types? Yeah, we get it. We don't wake at 5am to an hour of journalling, followed by an hour of meditation and then a dairy-free, nut milk, green-loaded, superfood smoothie consumed with complete mindfulness either... (not that there ain't anything wrong with that if you're a magical-unicorn-type that *actually* does this!)
So, I guess that's why we were looking for a book on meditation that feels relatable and on our level. With a title like 'Heavily Meditated' and the most glorious colour combo (pink + red = we could just look at you all day!), we suspected this might be it.
It's not holier than thou - it's real and authentic and funny. Perhaps we really can take up this meditation thang.
A down-to-earth guide to meditation and getting high on life.
Heavily Meditated has everything you need to know to get hooked on meditation for good. Presented in a simple, friendly, accessible style that even the busiest of meditation-doubters can relate to, this book clearly outlines:
