The benefits of meditation have been widely acknowledged and I would like to share some of the best books about meditation. There are many books on the market, some of which are accompanied by a CD. Although guided meditations can be a good starting point, I don't think they should be relied upon, as the best guide is actually yourself. I had tried meditation a number of times before and time and time again became frustrated with the process. I kept thinking I could be doing far better things with my time as my mind continued to wonder and I couldn't fully focus. The truth is, meditation is about being in the present moment because that is all we have. Thoughts will come and go and that's natural as we're so used to processing information. The best books about meditation are sure to help you on your way to understanding some of the fundamental principles of meditation as well as helping you to relieve stress and start living life to the fullest.

Wherever You Go There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn

I am a huge fan of Jon Kabat-Zinn and this was one of the first books I read about meditation. This man has been fundamental in bringing meditation and its many benefits to the masses and he is the founding director of the Stress-Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre. This is a wonderful introduction to meditation in which Kabat-Zinn explores the powers of meditation in an accessible and entertaining way. He also encourages us to ask questions of ourselves and look deeper within, which is where many of the answers we seek will lie. I believe this is one of the best books about meditation, especially for beginners.
