Excerpt from the introduction

In 2003 I received a phone call from the editor of an Adelaide based alternative newspaper that was about to be published for the first time and asked if I would like to contribute a column. I agreed, and so for fifteen years I wrote the column In the flow.

This book is a collection of those articles.

They were written for people who probably had little or no knowledge of meditation, and so I wrote about all the things which I found important and which interested me and I hoped that my readers would enjoy this introduction to the world of meditation.

The topics ranged widely across everything that meditation could possibly be associated with.  They covered the different types of meditation, how our minds and bodies work together, riding difficult emotions, as well as the benefits of using meditation to achieve a balanced emotional state.

They also showed how meditation can be used for physical, emotional and mental health, for our personal development and spiritual growth, and how invaluable it is in managing the stressful situations we find ourselves in both at home and at work.

Because I wrote these articles over such a long period, you will find that I continuously cycle around the themes and practices of meditation as I relate them to the topics I talk about, developing them and looking at them from different perspectives.

I included some of the knowledge and experience of psychology that I had been fortunate to acquire in my life, and I talked about discoveries in neuroscience. I also took the opportunity to present the important role meditation can play in answering the big questions - about human consciousness, love and how we find meaning in life.
