Finally a plain English introduction to the world of yogic meditation and relaxation : A simple Nuts and Bolts Guide to Meditation and Relaxation
This booklet outlines the basics, drawn from across a number traditions. It doesn't try to say that this is the only right way as some dogmatic tomes do, rather it recommends an experiential try it and judge for yourself approach.
Arwen Jayne is an author of fantasy/sci fi stories with a mix of the erotic and the spiritual, drawing again on a number of traditions. Her non-traditionalist style is reflected in this non-fiction guide to meditation. The meditations are all simple and easy to do. Background information explaining yogic anatomy and terms that might be needed to help the practitioner further their interest are provided.
The booklet is well suited for those who want to know how to do meditation without the usual overload of religious doctrine. The spiritual side is still there but it is presented as a way of using meditation. Its your choice whether you use the meditations to simply relax and find inner peace or to start a spiritual journey to uncovering the oneness that is always present within us all.

Just sitting, enjoying the inner stillness, silence and space. Being aware of the space around me. Being aware of the noisy chatter of self, of doubts and second guessing - not trying to interfere with it, just letting it be, without judgement. Being really aware of the sound, sight, smell, taste and feel of all of it, not just the self but everything as far as I can perceive with the senses - letting it just be what it is. Not judging. The peace of it. Wow!
