MEDITATION BOOKS: It is said that Prayer is "asking" from God and meditation is the "listening" for the response. Today more and more people are discovering the essential practice of Meditation and our books on Meditation share various techniques and insights into this practice which when incorporated into daily life causes a person to flower like a plant after first rains. The First Meditation, subtitled "What can be called into doubt," opens with the Meditator reflecting on the number of falsehoods he has believed during his life and on the subsequent faultiness of the body of knowledge he has built up from these falsehoods. He has resolved to sweep away all he.

The book is made up of six meditations, in which Descartes first discards all belief in things that are not absolutely certain, and then tries to establish what can be known for sure. He wrote the meditations as if he had meditated for six days: each meditation refers to the last one as "yesterday".   Each of these books offers a series of poses that invite kids to greet each day with peace and joy, and gently drift off to sleep with ease. The poses are introduced with colorful illustrations and a story that can be read separately from the instructions. Once your kids are familiar with the books, they’ll be leading themselves through the flow.
