    One thought on “Why Can't I Meditate?: How to Get Your Mindfulness Practice on Track”

    1. I liked this, and will keep it lying around to come back to. Why can't I meditate? turned into I can meditate! after reading, not because I had become objectively better, but in that I realised that my constant drone of 'Am I doing this right? Am I thinking too much?' was counterproductive, and that I should just go with it. The most useful piece of advice was that having to return to a self-aware present state was an important part of meditation, and you shouldn't scold yourself for needing to [...]

    2. This book was slow going for me, but the information in it incredibly helpful for someone who has meditated before but hasn't kept up a regular practice and wants to.

    3. In spite of the odd title, this is one of the best books on mindfulness meditation I've read. It combines psychology with mindfulness-based stress reduction practices and gives an extensive explanation of the benefits of meditation as well as the reasons that many of us resist continuing a daily practice.

    4. I've needed this book in a very real way. Absolutely just what I needed. One of those rare books I need to OWN to keep coming back to!

    5. Good supportGood sound advice for establishing a meditation practice. Working with the ideas presented has provided me with additional information to carry me through a plateau I was experiencing in my own practice.

    6. Very practical and readable. Will keep coming back to this. Highly recommended to anyone interested in meditation.

    7. Helpful reminders and encouraging insights. I'll be sure to buy this as I continue on my own meditative path.

    8. I actually DIDN'T get to finish this book. I was forced to return it to the library because somebody put it on hold while I was borrowing it. Ugh!
