Another Chapter Completed - Meditation Book Update

Wednesday 12th February 2014

Almost there... it's been many years in the writing (and re-writing) so I thought I'd give you a quick update. Although size is not important and what really matters is the content it is now at over 53,000 words. This represents over 30 years of meditation experience and crammed with useful, practical and down to earth advice and discussion on meditation drawing on over 15 years of teaching experience.

I've set myself the goal of publishing the book this year and soon so I'm giving you this up-date as a way of keeping it in mind. I woke up this morning and started writing at about 5:30am. That's when the idea for another chapter came to mind and I've found that when writing, it's best to get stuff down while the moment of inspiration is happening. So that's another useful chapter written. There's just so much useful stuff I want to share with your all!
