You can use meditation to de-stress and heal – attain a happier, fulfilled life – or awaken your personal evolution.

But what if your practice doesn’t bring you the rewards you expected?

This How-To book is aimed at people who have tried meditation but not gained the results they hoped for.

No-one wants to admit to themselves they had errors in their knowledge. The author says he has made more mistakes in his practice than he can count. Packed with nuggets, gems, and insights from his experience so you miss out on the frustration.

It is a practical step back into meditation – for whatever goals you choose.

  • Exactly what meditation is, and is not.
  • How to do it properly, for best results.
  • The mistakes people make that stop them progressing.
It reveals a new framework for understanding meditation – for non-Buddhists.

Awarded a GOLD STAR from The International Review of Books

More than a how-to meditate book, a realistic guide to what we can expect as we begin utilizing the seven different ways to meditate.

An enjoyable and thoroughly comprehensive book for the beginner of meditation. What to expect and focus on, and specific pitfalls to avoid as well as dispelling some of the more common myths. There are seven mind-technologies, or ways, to meditate and it’s both fascinating and enlightening to learn how to appropriately utilize them.

I myself have always thought that meditation would never in a million years work for me. I’m a Type A personality and generally my mind is in a perpetual state of overdrive. But now I’ve learned that I can learn to meditate properly despite these characteristics. There is no need for me to put up roadblocks as this book shows me how I CAN and WILL meditate successfully!

A Gold Star is their highest accolade


What is the new framework about?

The framework uses different phrases to what you find in every other book on meditation because the author wants to be clear about what is meant by the terms he is using.

The seven spheres of meditation are:

Restful Absorption (RA)
Intentional Awareness (IA)
Engrossed Attention (EA)
Authentic Attitudes (AA)
Visualisation or Imagination (VI)
Question or Introspect (QI)
Mantra or Invocation (MI)

circles to represent the 7 spheres of meditation

This precision is so you can:

  • Find what suits your preferences.
  • Diagnose problems with your meditation and find solutions easily.

There is no mention of spirituality, but there are suggestions about awakening to your true potential, for those who want a firm foundation for their personal evolution. Meditation opens that door/path. The steps to awakening are not within this book.

Using all 7 spheres of meditation will also make your meditation amazing.

Pretty concise, useful, and to the point, exactly the handbook on meditation I was desperately looking for and almost gave up on ever finding.

The perfect book for meditation beginners.
I was pleasantly surprised by the level of detail, openness and teachings from this book.
It is great for beginners as I have always been aware of meditation and mindfulness but have never fully committed to deepening my practice. I am grateful to have learnt more about Colin’s personal story and I admire him more because of it!

This book is easy to read as it’s broken up into lots of smaller segments yet it has more detail than any other book on picking up meditation. Colin goes through a few meditation practices that I feel will really add to my daily life, such as the inner smile and de-stress meditations. Lastly it has inspired me to continue my practice through the use of helpful habits Colin outlines.

I feel inspired to read more books about meditation and mindfulness.

~ F. K. P. – Reviewer on Amazon
