Dr Ramesh Manocha and his team are using science to study the effects that meditation may have on stress, physical health and wellbeing. The results? For a short time every day - the length of time it takes to make a coffee - you can feel the immediate benefits that meditation brings to your mental and physical health. BEYOND THE MIND goes beyond regular stress management. Dr Manocha's plain English approach to meditation, or mental silence, is written for the general reader who perhaps wouldn't normally turn to alternative approaches to deal with health issues and shows how simple and effective techniques can be built into any part of your day - without cramping your style. This hands-on guide also shows how meditation can be used in sport and creative pursuits, in schools to help children manage anger and depression, and for general physical health. Dr Manocha also traces the roots of meditation back to India and shows the parallels that exist between these values and those of Western Culture.
A practical, science-based guide that shows how in just 10 to 15 minutes a day you can make mediation part of your routine and improve your happiness, wellbeing and productivity, for people of all ages and all walks of life.
