Publisher's Synopsis
Dr. LeShan takes the approach that mediation is not mysterious; nor is one form of meditation ideal for everyone. Dr. LeShan outlines a variety of meditation techniques, and teaches four distinctly different forms of meditation: Breath Counting, Contemplation, Insight, and Mantra.

"If you're just considering it, How To Meditate is recommended equipment for the first steps."      ~Hank Basayne, Association of Humanistic Psychology

"A few years ago, I was at a small conference of scientists, all of whom practiced meditation on a daily basis. Toward the end of the four-day meeting, during which each of them had described at some length how he meditated, I began to press them on the question of why they meditated.

Various answers were given by different members of the group and we all knew that they were unsatisfactory, that they did not really answer the question. Finally one man said, 'It's like coming home.' There was silence after this, and one by one all nodded their heads in agreement. There was clearly no need to prolong the inquiry further."

Lawrence LeShan, a pioneer in exploring the therapeutic and ethical implications of meditation, is a practicing psychotherapist. He lives in New York City.
