If you have become disheartened and discouraged with meditation, then I highly recommend you read this newly revised book by Sally Kempton. This book is sure to give you some new passion and excitement to go and sit on your meditation cushion. Even if your meditation practice is completely free from dullness and drudgery, Meditation for the Love of It is an amazing resource, guide and inspiration for all levels of meditators.
Kempton writes clearly and simply and relates the wisdom of ancient teachings and scriptures to real-world applications. She tells us that the two key attitudes in sustaining a daily practice are playfulness and devotion, and she shares guidance and instruction in over twenty meditation practices for invoking and exploring those qualities. Most importantly, Kempton gives both the permission and encouragement to experiment and be creative with the practice and content of one’s daily meditation practice.
