Meditation is a great way to reduce stress, increase energy, and enjoy better health. It is believed to result in a state of greater calmness and physical relaxation, and psychological balance. Plus, practicing meditation can change how you relate to the flow of emotions and thoughts in your everyday life.

This fun and easy guide has long been a favorite with meditation newcomers . . . and now it's even better. Meditation For Dummies offers a newly recorded CD featuring more than 70 minutes of music and guided meditations that are keyed to topics in the book, from tuning in to your body, transforming suffering, and replacing negative patterns to grounding yourself, consulting the guru within, and finding a peaceful place. The book also discusses the latest research on the health benefits of meditation, along with new advice on how to get the most out of meditation in today's fast-paced world.
