Publisher's Summary

2020 Readers' Favorite Award's Gold Medal winner in self-help.

Discover the original, instinctive, nonreligious form of meditation that has been lost to the world. Richard L. Haight, award-winning author of The Unbound Soul and master of four samurai arts, shares the best-kept secret in self-improvement, cognitive development, and stress relief, which he calls the "warrior's meditation".

For people of all backgrounds, genders, and ages.

To get a picture of the "warrior’s meditation", imagine a battlefield scenario with a single samurai standing, surrounded by multiple opponents. A novice’s attention would jump from opponent to opponent in an anxious attempt to defend himself. Such a strategy soon tires the warrior, who will be defeated. An expert warrior will spread his attention evenly in all directions but still experience anxiety as he mentally plans his strategy. His thoughts and anxiety may be his downfall if his opponents are truly skilled. A master’s attention, like the expert’s, is spread evenly, but he remains as calm as the surface of a still lake. With no predetermined idea of what his actions might be, his body takes the right action without a single thought.

You may wonder how the samurai’s experience bears any resemblance to your modern life. After all, no armies or assassins seem to be trying to attack you or your town. In one way, we modern people are not so different from the samurai. With our busy lives, we don’t have time to spend hours a day in meditation. Instead, we need a meditation that allows our actions in a high-pressure, fast-paced world to flow from a depth of awareness. The Warrior’s Meditation helps you access and express from that depth naturally.

Open your eyes to incredible, new depths of awareness that help to bring out your greatest inner qualities - begin listening to The Warrior's Meditation today!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Unique approaches to meditation

I liked the author’s unique take on meditation and his presentation of this new way of looking at meditation outside the usual concentration methods. He also includes some very useful information on general lifestyle supporting tips, such as diet, environment, etc. The book as a whole was about the right length. I really liked the appendix and explanations at the end of the book.

the Natural Way

Although based on meditation principles, do not shy away - this is the most natural, intuitive and authentic teaching on everyday living in conscious awareness. Not only does it provide the reader with the thorough knowledge on the subconscious mechanisms governing our daily choices but simultaneously offers easy, applicable tools for adjustments and corrections leading us directly to effortless experience of the wholeness of life. To put it bluntly and straightforwardly: it is the essence of ancient wisdom distilled into practicality, no matter your origin, race, creed, social status or professional career. Due to its availability and applicability, the practice is totally liberating and empowering allowing the reader / practicioner the infinite space for constant expansion and exploration into authentic, free, natural, inspiring being (the pun intended). Brilliant!

Awesome

The Warrior's Meditation is for anyone wanting to keep their sanity during the stay at home orders and beyond. The meditation is non-religious and is taught in a clear way that makes applying it to both daily life and in sitting meditation fun and enlightening. I highly recommend it!

A real treat

This was my first Audible book, and will not be my last. I have read all of Richard’s books thus far, but, hearing him narrate “The Warrior’s Meditation” really took it to a different place for me. It became more clear, somehow, how absolutely jam-packed with practical wisdom this book is. Like I said, this was my first Audible book. Now I will be checking out “The Unbound Soul” or “Inspirience” to experience those in this same way. Thank you Richard Haight, and thank you Audible.

New Awareness taught here

The book is informative and mind opening. The practice of the warriors meditation is likely the best mindfulness meditations I have experienced. The book outlines the philosophy and shares ideas and tips for enriching your life in a broad way through some simple practices and recommendations. It is philosophical in nature, and not so much a "story" as a shared philosophy with exercises to help practice. The practices required no moral or spiritual adherence to any classic religious or philosophical set belief, and I found this to be a relief. This book espouses and is one of those deceptively simple practices that can change your life and focus for the better. But it is KEY to practice and do the exercises in the book to benefit and Richard offers. And beyond the book I do recommend Richard L. Haright's website with more info. and particularly recommend The type of awareness and open eye open senses focused meditation that is practiced daily by Richard onlinem. This daily online practice maybe joined for a reasonable price and makes it easier to actually "practice" the books ideas with more guidance and assistance from Richard.

The Warrior's Meditation

If you are interested in the science behind meditating then this book offers a very well researched account of what is going on in the brain while you meditate. Meditation is different for everyone and I found this book useful as I have often struggled to meditate and let go, I found Richard Haight's strategies very useful and his explanations excellent. It is nice that the author has recorded the audio as well.

Unique practise of meditation

Love this book, which is an incredible step by step guide on not only how to meditate but also the pitfalls that may be encountered along the way. Easy to read and listen to, and for anyone starting to learn how to meditate or for seasoned practitioners, this is a totally different concept as meditation with awareness can become part of your daily life. A book to cherish and to keep going back to.

Only book on Meditation

I've found this book to be quite awe-inspiring. The author has presented detailed knowledge and experience in matters of health and life (as well as martial arts) especially in relation to meditation. There are a few areas early on, where the subject matter is slightly dry and had it been a written book I might have glossed over those sections, however, hearing it made it easily covered and in fact important to understand, so much so that I want to re-read the book even before I have finished it. The author obviously has extensive knowledge and experience but presents it in SUCH a modest way, completely without ego. Many times people like to pound their chest, nothing like that here. The author/reader is incredibly likable and delivered value. I also hadn't realised that he has other books "The Unbound Soul" amongst others, I cannot wait to read more. There are exercises in the book and I will complete a few more of those on my second reading and will update my review at that time. I just couldn't wait to write this review it has been so enjoyable a read.
