KIRKUS REVIEW

In this self-help guide to a calmer mind, the author outlines the benefits and methods of meditation.

Carefully unpacking the world of meditation and the mind, debut author Webster first shares her personal experiences with meditation, illustrating the ways it improved her daily interactions and physical and spiritual health. From there, she takes the reader on a journey through the soul, describing the chakras’ roles, their positive and negative manifestations, and the ways strengthening the chakras can affect perspective and improve concentration. The author explores the mind, discussing fears, anxieties, and phobias and how meditation, kundalini meditation specifically, can ameliorate these mental discomforts. Webster offers instructions, exercises, and practices to open the third eye, visualize chakras, and use chanting and breathing techniques to reach a relaxed, open state. Softening eye focus is another fascinating technique the author describes and teaches. With an emphasis on patience and process, she skillfully weaves techniques, personal stories, and explanations to create an interactive, engaging guide to kundalini meditation. One of the strongest points is the emphasis on the importance of breathing, not just in meditation, but as a life force. The author asks the reader to visualize the way the body is fed by breathing and offers concrete advice about ways to focus on the breath as an indicator of wellness, anxiety, and stress. In all, Webster tackles a topic perplexing to many and delivers it in a way that creates accessibility and ease of understanding. The book could serve as an informative one-time read or a guide to reference again and again in the personal search for calmness, wellness, and fulfillment through meditation.

A successful, accessible, and conversational guide to kundalini meditation with emphasis on patience and practice.
