Meditation Teacher Mark's Blog

I've finally finished writing my book which will be called "The Simple Truth". It's all about meditation, spirituality and is everything I wish I'd known when I started. Over the years of teaching I've had the chance to explore teaching approaches and refine how I work and in this book I'm sharing my insights, lessons learned and really useful practical advice. It's aimed at anyone who's interested in finding out about meditation and the bigger picture of life. It's also a really useful resource for those who teach meditation too. There's practical advice and guidance as well as lots on psychology and some subjects that are a little Taboo at times.

Here is the Table of Contents for the Meditation Book:
