As a purist, Justin Stone believes that one should write only about those meditative forms which one has personally experienced. He has worked extensively for many years with acknowledged masters in the Far East who selected him to learn and practice the meditations he offers in this book. They come from his work with the Japanese Healing Church, Chinese Taoism, East Indian practices. He is an authority in detailing each meditation presented, including hazards one should avoid to maintain the most successful practice in whatever meditation one chooses from the great variety to which he introduces the reader. Some of his cautions suggest that certain meditations be done only under the tutelage of an experienced and highly-principled teacher, not necessarily easy to find in the West.From the Author:
Great numbers of men and women are interested in the practice of meditation for health benefits, but how many of them know that there are many types of meditation, each causing a different effect in the meditator? Meditation for Healing offers detailed instruction in different kinds of meditation, elaborates on the physical and mental results to be experienced, and discusses the background and underlying philosophy of each.
With the spreading interest in alternative forms of self-healing, such a book seems a must for those who wish to suggest meditation as a healing force to patients or friends. Doctors, psychologists, educators, and all readers will find this a valuable text and do-it-yourself guide to meditational healing. The methods taught in Meditation for Healing may very well indicate the direction of healing arts in the future.
