Creating Calm

Meditations In Daily Life

By Gill Farrer-Halls

Perhaps the most reliable path to spiritual and mental calm is through meditation—a practice dating from antiquity that is basic to many religions. In Creating Calm, the author introduces readers to principles of meditation, explains mindfulness of breathing, instructs on sitting meditation, and discusses several forms of meditation, including those practiced in both Eastern and Western cultures. Most important, she shows how to incorporate mediation into daily life. Explained here are various forms of mediation, all of which have the power to induce calm. They include: Buddhist chanting, Christian chanting, Torah recitation, Transcendental meditation, Sufi dancing, Yoga, and others. Readers learn how to incorporate meditation into such daily actions as walking, eating, and doing routine chores. Devotional practices and rituals explained include Christian prayer, the Zen Buddhist tea ceremony, flower arranging, and Islamic prayer. Approximately 60 illustrations help clarify the principles and practices of meditation.
