Meditation for the 21st Century: Meditation works!

Research evidence clearly shows that meditation is beneficial for a range of mental health concerns and can significantly change the structure and function of the brain. In this book, you will learn the science behind meditation and come to understand that all meditations are not created equal. Different styles of meditation involve different types of attention, intention, and brain activation patterns. 

Based on this understanding, we have identified 4 styles of meditation (FocusMindfulnessOpen Heart, and Quiet Mind) that can be matched with specific goals and mental health concerns. In this book, we will explore these styles in depth, with an emphasis on individualizing meditation interventions to the goals and needs of each person. 

While written for professionals, Dr. Tarrant's book is accessible for anyone interested in starting or expanding their meditation practice. Over 50 worksheets, handouts, tips, scripts, and exercises on: 

This book goes beyond traditional meditation practices to include mind-body strategies, such as biofeedback, meditation-in-motion, and nature-based approaches. The reader will gain an expanded meditation-based toolbox to use both personally and professionally, while learning to synthesize and prioritize these tools to enhance their effectiveness.
