There are many books about meditation being sold today. For starters, choosing among the many books the one that can provide you with everything you need can be very difficult. In fact, there are even books that can be considered useless and of no importance. So before purchasing any book or CD on meditation, it would be best to check their customer reviews first, just make sure that it is an independent review and one that is not biased.
The book and CD of Stephan Bodian for only about $17.60 is such a great deal for meditation beginners. According to many reviews, this book is of great value and it contains all your needed information about meditation for starters. The book is simple, direct, and offers a lot of recommendations.

There are also some drawbacks about the book and CD edition. Dummies are easily discouraged of very long books. The book has actually 300 pages, with the foremost chapters talking about the importance and goodness of meditation. Since the book is quite long, many dummies may get drowsy reading it. Others complain about the voice on the CD being harsh, egotistical, and new agey, and stoned. What the listeners want is a voice that match the author's. A voice that is practical, knowledgeable, fun loving, open, likeable, and well rounded. Many dummies practicing meditation want the right voice on their CD and they would gladly pay for it.

Most Westerners think of meditation as someone sitting down, cross legged with their eyes closed and probably chanting some kind of mantra over and over again.
But that is only one of the ways that people can practice meditation.
Meditating can also be performed standing up, lying down or walking.
Today, we're going to look at walking meditation. In this situation, the walking itself is the focus of your meditation, rather than a candle or a mantra or your breathing.
Obviously, depending on where the walking is taking place, you may also need to be aware of other external influences as well, such as joggers and cyclists.
In a walking meditation, you should concentrate on the actual experience of walking. Notice the pressure on each foot as it touches the ground and the relief of that pressure as your foot rises again. Take in the experience of the muscles in your legs. Notice when they tense up and when they relax. Feel the changes in your toes as they meet the ground. Recognize what is happening to your ankles as you walk along.
As well as the stress relief that a walking meditation naturally brings, you should also experience a feeling of energy and invigoration. Walking is a more active meditation than some other types (although breathing meditations can get pretty energetic as well, if you choose to let them). You also benefit from the exercise of walking, which is an aerobic exercise in itself. It follows that a walking meditation can be of overall benefit to your health and can even help keep you fit.
If the thought of sitting or lying down to meditate has put you off in the past, then taking the walking meditation course could be just the ticket. Give it a try and see how refreshed you feel afterwards!
