Abstract

Meditation is becoming a daily practice for more and more people, and is used by clinical psychologists, counsellors, and therapists to heal themselves and their clients. This new book provides a much-needed psychological appraisal of meditation, summarizing fifteen years of sustained psychological research in the area, and signposting new research and theoretical directions. The contributors are among the most eminent international writers and researchers on the psychology of meditation. This collection represents the only balanced, comprehensive overview of research in the field currently available. Readers will also gain an enriched knowledge of meditation and find valuable new perspectives for understanding human behaviour more generally.
