Is meditation something you’re attracted to, but find hard to begin? While hiking is itself meditative, sometimes it is meditation itself that can seem hard.
“Soul Centered: Transform Your Life in 8 Weeks with Meditation” is for you. The new book by Sedona’s own Sarah McLean is a well-thought out and helpful guidebook, offering a path to mastery. For once, creating a meditation practice looks like something that anyone can accomplish.
First, it’s a step-by-step approach. McLean’s eight clear chapters break it down just right. She discusses the need for and benefits of meditation in a way that is practical, with lots of scientific data backing her up. Just as importantly, she explains the resistance and distractions that can get in the way.
Second, Sarah McLean knows her stuff. Having assisted Gary Zukav, Byron Katie and Deepak Chopra (who warmly endorsed the book), she’s preaching what she has successfully taught to thousands. In this book, every question and doubt gets answered, even as she provides the encouragement we need to persevere.
Ultimately, what really separates this book from the crowd is the quality of Sarah McLean’s personal story. This is a woman we can identify with who learned many lessons the hard way, before finding the path. Best of all, her sense of humor takes the starchy dogma out of meditation.
The stories of Sarah and her students prove that meditation could do what her title suggests: Help us find, and stay centered in, the Soul.Tweet
