    Pocket Guide To Meditation focuses on meditation as spiritual practice. It is a universal tool that helps practitioners forge deeper connections with Spirit and, as Alan Pritz states, Meditation delivers one of the most profound experiences of life, joy.

    Beyond its inherently spiritual purpose and value, meditation offers physical and mental benefits as well. These include:
    Stress Reduction
    Immune system enhancement
    Greater energy, clarity, and productivity
    Increased intellectual capacity, emotional intelligence, and social performance

    What people have said about Pocket Guide To Meditation:

    What a great Pocket Guide To Meditation. This book should be given to everybody who enters a doctors office, so they hopefully wont need to come back. The HMOs should underwrite this project; it would save them money, which is their bottom line.
    Larry Dossey, Author of Healing Words, The Power of Prayer & Practice of Medicine

    Alan has taken a big subject and made it friendly, interesting, and useful for everyone. This is the perfect little book to carry around in purse or pocket for quick moments of inspiration.
    Lilias Folan, Host of PBS series, Lilias!

    A great resource to begin your meditation journey. A wonderful guide to explore the classical practices of meditation in a very clear and understandable manner; a great resource for the beginner and advanced practitioner alike. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is on the journey to integrate more pause, reflection, and spirituality into their life.
    Kevin Cashman, Author of Leadership From The Inside Out

    Joy is not for just the lucky few–it’s a choice anyone can make. In this groundbreaking book, based on his popular course, James Baraz helps you discover a path to the happiness that’s right in front of you, offering a step-by-step program that will reorient your mind away from dissatisfaction and distraction and toward the contentment and delight that is abundantly available in our everyday lives.

    You can decide to be happy. For years, James Baraz’s online Awakening Joy course has offered participants from around the world the benefits of this simple but profoundly radical proposition. Grounded in simple Buddhist principles but accessible to people of all faiths–or no faith at all–this concept provides the jumping-off point for a transformational journey toward a richer, more meaningful, more positive outlook on life. Now readers everywhere can follow the same ten steps Baraz teaches to his program participants. In this practical down-to-earth guide, you will learn how to

    • make happiness a habit by inclining your mind toward states that lead to well-being
    • find joy even during difficult times and avoid the pitfalls that prevent you from achieving the contentment you seek
    • cultivate effective practices for sustaining joyfulness, such as reclaiming your natural sense of wonder and finding joy in the midst of everyday experiences

    Each chapter of Awakening Joy consists of one step in Baraz’s ten-step program and includes engaging exercises and practical advice to make happiness your natural default setting. For everyone from the cynic despondent over life’s many sorrows to the harried commuter raging at freeway traffic, this book offers up a simple yet powerful message of hope grounded in the realization that joy already exists inside every one of us. Like a precious child, it only needs to be recognized, embraced, and nurtured in order to grow to its full potential.
