Great book to understand meditation
Insightful, educative and easy - the concept and practice of meditation are made very approachable to any type of reader.
Darren Main uses real life examples from his own experience and the people that surrounds him. It is easier to connect to real life events rather than just stick to vague concepts.
I listened to this book in a few days, it was good and made me want to start meditating and give it a try.
Darren Main gives us a little challenge in the book. Try to do 20 minutes of meditation for one month. I accepted the challenge and today is my 3rd day of meditation. It's been hard so far but being able to understand when and why my mind wanders and how to refocus it to the breath is really useful. This challenge pushes readers to try and see the benefits for themselves. Without this challenge, I doubt I would have been able to stay consistent. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to start meditation or learn more.
A simple but profound mindfulness technique.
I began reading Inner Tranquility: A Guide to Seated Meditation thinking "I should be meditating." I ended the book thinking "Why on earth don't I meditate?" In addition to a highly accessible guide to starting and maintaining a daily meditation practice, Darren Main lays out a powerful case for how meditation can benefit any person and why the challenge of this seemingly simple but profound mindfulness technique is well worth taking on.
