Dr. Joel and Michelle Levey were among the very first to bring mindfulness and mind-fitness teachings to mainstream organizations beginning in the 1970s. They have taught tens of thousands of people in hundreds of leading corporations, medical centers, universities, sports, government, and military arenas - including Google, NASA, World Bank, Intel, M.I.T., Stanford, and World Business Academy. They are the founders of Wisdom at Work (http://wisdomatwork.com).
Originally published in hardcover as Simple Meditation and Relaxation (Conari Press, 1999) and in paperback as Luminous Mind (Conari Press, 2006).
Whether you are trying to de-stress, develop your insight and intuition, or activate the law of attraction, you are sure to find one or more approaches to meditation in this book that will be comfortable and effective for you. The Levey's are the absolute masters of the art, and their book provides interesting background, gentle guidance, practices and visualizations that will be helpful whatever your prior experience with meditation may be. Warmly recommended.
