  • Real Happiness
  • by Sharon Salzberg
  • Price: $14.95

Sharon Salzberg, one of the world’s foremost meditation teachers, cofounder of the Insight Meditation Society, and author of Lovingkindness, distills 30 years of teaching meditation into a 28-day program that will change lives.

From the basics of posture, breathing, and the daily schedule—to the finer points of calming the mind, distraction, dealing with specific problem areas (pain in the legs? falling asleep?)—and the larger issues of compassion and awareness, Real Happiness is a complete guide for beginners or experienced meditators.

Learn how meditation works. Discover why a daily meditation practice results in more resiliency, creativity, peace, clarity, and balance--bringing "real happiness."

Salzberg explains twelve meditation practices, including mindfulness meditation and walking meditation.  An extensive selection of questions from her students covers he most frequent concerns of beginners who meditate—“Is meditation selfish?” “How do I know if I’m doing it right?” “Can I use meditation to manage weight?”  The accompanying CD has over a hour of instructions and guided meditations.
