There’s no trying in meditation.

If you can breathe, you can meditate. Just as water naturally runs downhill and leaves float naturally to the ground, we are all naturally able to settle into meditation. Meditation doesn’t require trying; rather, meditation comes out of just allowing—not doing, just being.

Whether you’re a complete novice or you’ve "tried it before," veteran meditation teacher Dean Sluyter’s relaxed, down-to-earth approach will help you test-drive a variety of meditative techniques, such as breath, sound, the senses, the sky, and the simple sense of "I," and discover which ones fit you best. You’ll discover that the key to meditation is effortlessness, and find all the practical tips you need for adapting these methods to your own life, as you live it, even for a few minutes a day. And as your life opens to deep happiness, clarity, peace, and creative energy, you’ll be inspired to keep on practicing—naturally.

From the Author:

In the few months that Natural Meditation has been out, I've received messages from people all over the U.S. and beyond who've read it and, in some cases, attended my workshops. Getting this kind of feedback is one of the best parts of what I do. Here are a few excerpts:
 
"Your book explains it all. I am telling every person who tells me they just can't meditate to get your book. You have given the world a great gift--thank you so very much!!"
 
"Throughout my life I've experienced many hardships, from molestation as a young boy, drug and alcohol abuse, physical disabilities, mental and psychological disorders since I was 10 years old, and the list goes on and on. I had many reasons to feel that life was unfair. For the last 5 years I've been researching and practicing guided meditations, sound meditation, focused meditation, breathing meditation, and pretty much whatever I could think of. The only problem is I always felt like I was doing it wrong, or I was missing something and that it wasn't working. Yesterday, when I finished your book I felt like for the first time I knew what I was doing. I can't even explain how ecstatic I am. Thank you for putting this information out there for the rest of us."
 
"I just wanted to reach out and thank you from the bottom of my little heart for conducting such an awesome workshop. For my first time really sitting down with a teacher to meditate, it was something I'll be talking about for a long time. I actually found such comfort in your book that I recommended it to my ex and he said he bought it and he'll start reading it shortly."
 
"I recently bought Natural Meditation and was blown away by it. So, I bought and read Why the Chicken Crossed the Road and was blown away by it. So I bought and am reading Cinema Nirvana and am being blown away by it. The Zen Commandments sits on my shelf and waits for me. I will always be grateful to the person who recommended your books to me."
