Divine Art of Meditation
I’m very excited about this book. Having experienced a wide range of meditation techniques myself, I am often surprised at how little most Baha’is know about such an important subject.
“This is tomato bisque for the soul, where the reader can actually sample meditation techniques – drawn from the great masters and contemplative traditions of world religions. Here, the reader can taste the physiological, psychological and spiritual benefits of meditation . . . the author shows how these techniques, done singly or in combination, promote peace of mind, comfort, confidence, strength, wisdom and self-empowerment for the benefit of self and others – all with scientific evidence of meditation’s powers to uplift body and mind. Professor Masumian authenticates her meditation handbook by sharing what she herself has experienced while performing these various meditations – a consummate personal touch. A gift by a gifted author.'” Christopher Buck, author of Religions Myths and Visions of America
