Publisher's Summary

Four simple steps to peace and contentment - without having to spend the rest of your life on a mountaintop. Paul Wilson's books have sold over eight million copies in print and have been translated into 24 languages.

Imagine there is a place where you can't be touched by the noise and tensions of the modern world. Where, no matter what's going on around you, you can find time and space and room to breathe. This place exists. It's called The Quiet. Some people spend a lifetime of meditation practice and spiritual studies trying to find it. You can be on your way there in as little as 13 minutes.

The Quiet practices are centred around four simple steps (three physical, one mental) that transform your mental state and the way you feel. They're more streamlined than traditional meditation methods, but every bit as deep. In fact, the major difference is their simplicity, and the way they dovetail into a busy, dynamic life. There's never been a more pressing need for the peace of mind, clarity of thought, emo"tional stability, and physical wellbeing that flow from these practices. There's never been a more pressing need for The Quiet.

Superb.

I have read many books, and listened to many tapes and CDs on the subject of meditation. This book is a comprehensive treatment,it is informative and fascinating. Wilson's approach to guiding the listener into the practice of meditation is highly effective due to its, clarity, organization and presentation. The second part of the book is truly inspiring. This will be the last book, audio or otherwise, I will ever need on meditation. Paul Wilson has effectively communicated the concept of meditation and skillfully guided the listener to success in the process. I highly recommend this to anyone who has tried to learn to meditate on his or her own, but has been frustrated in the effort.

Perfect!

I have been studying meditation for more than 7 years and Paul Wilson's book has taken my practice to a whole new level. Its easy to pick up and practice and also deep enough to teach new techniques to experienced folks. I listened to book A twice, practiced for a couple of months and then went to book B. Paul's honesty about how much you need to practice should be followed if you want the best from these practices. Well worth the money; you get so much from this audio book - I will be listening for years to come!
