Calm: No Matter What by Paul Wilson

The latest offering by Little Book of Calm author Paul Wilson provides practical meditation advice.

Paul Wilson has taught more than a million people to meditate, so it’s fitting that he’s known as The Guru of Calm. Having written 25 books – notably, the relaxation classic The Little Book of Calm – Wilson returns again to the topic of inner peace and tranquillity in this new book, offering simple instructions for finding balance in your life.

Restlesness, Wilson says, is something that affects us more than ever before. “I wouldn’t go so far as to say this is a more stressful age, just that the restlessness is pervasive. And it is happening to younger and younger people,” he says. “That’s why I revisited the meditation topic. And why I’ve simplified it to the greatest possible degree. First so that it can easily fit into your day. And second so that it be most effective in today’s impatient, short-attention-span world.”

Meditation can seem like a difficult thing for beginners. Many people believe they don’t have the patience, the skills or the background knowledge to do it properly. Wilson describes himself as a spiritual ‘uncomplicator’; his goal is to untwist these ideas and make the art of finding calm accessible to everyone. That’s why this book breaks meditation practice down into simple concepts and exercises, giving you the essential tools for coping with whatever gets thrown your way.

The secret? Learning to shift your state of mind from frenzied to focused, simply by training your attention to rest in the present. It’s not an instant fix, but with practice it can be achieved, putting serenity well within your grasp.
Gentle, practical and engaging, Calm: No Matter What is an excellent resource for anyone wanting short and long term solutions for making life less frazzled.
