Description


The Leveys introduce readers to dozens of mindfulness and meditation techniques, skillfully organized into five categories of practice, making Mindfulness, Meditation, and Mind Fitness a very comprehensive and easytouse resource for inner exploration and transformation.

This book offers a treasury of practical wisdom distilled from the Leveys' intensive study with many of the world's most respected authorities of the contemplative science and wisdom traditions, and an introduction to the mindfitness disciplines necessary for personal mastery, wisdom, creativity, compassion, and resilience in times of increasing intensity and accelerating change. Given how many people needlessly suffer from overwhelm, exhaustion, and preventable stressrelated illness, the Leveys' wisdom is needed now more than ever! This book is an inspiration for complete beginners, longtime meditators, and everyone in between, who seek to deepen and expand their practice.

They have taught tens of thousands of people in hundreds of leading corporations, medical centers, universities, sports, government, and military arenas - including Google, NASA, World Bank, Intel, M.I.T., Stanford, and World Business Academy.
