The difficulties of meditation can easily lead to feelings of frustration and
inadequacy, as well as self-judgment and self-recrimination. Andrew Holecek
addresses such challenges head-on, presenting a very helpful approach to
meditation based on love, gentleness, and self-compassion. Reading this book is
like having a friendly meditation coach who helps you through the rough spots
and encourages you to work creatively with the challenges everyone encounters when
embarking on this difficult but essential undertaking.

Meditation grows increasingly important as we struggle to
find sanity in this fast-paced, stress-fill world. Holecek clarifies the
purpose of meditation, dispelling – head on – the many cultural and personal assumptions
we may have about it. A personal, encouraging, intelligent and fun read!
