Meditation is a crucial tool that we can use so we are able to control our minds, lives, and emotions instead of having them control us. This book explores different exercises that we can do to cure certain ailments, or issues. Our lives are a product of what we think, what we think about manifests, so why not direct our thoughts to the path we want to go to. Dr. Dharma is very passionate about brain longevity and a credible Dr. as well as a practioner and teacher of Kundalini Yoga.
Given to my by Clare, this book offers specific breathing, yoga and chants to heal your body. An examination of the seven or eight 'chakras' representing different areas of the body for ethereal healing are then explored. The book starts with the medical studies that show the benefits of meditation up to page 63. As a frequent meditater, I can attest to the positive benefits to this practice. After that through, the book progresses through the each of the seven chakras, their associated body ele ...more

This is the fourth book that I have read by Dharma Singh Khalsa and, in all probability, the most important. The book is a multi prong approach of achieving maximum health including nutrition, stress management, exercise and pharmaceuticals. "Meditation as Medicine" is an in depth focus on the importance of "Medical Meditation" in which Kundalini Yoga is the primary component. The explanations and diagrams are very clear and easy to understand if one chooses to follow this program. I would highl ...more

Recommends it for: anyone and everyone interested in relaxation and healing
For me, Meditation As Medicine became a pivotal primary resource when I was writing my own e-book on health and wellness. Written in a very straight forward way (including diagrams of exercises and poses) this all-in-one book is a perfect combination of physical, medical, spiritual and psychological wellness information. Meditation as Medicine... is chalk full of invaluable information about human anatomy, relaxation, the names of various poses and the specific ailments in which they help to rel ...more

I read about Karen Salzberg when I started practising Loving Kindness. I wanted to update and streamline my meditation and read that she had written a book, Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation- A 28 Day Program. I LOVE this book. It is appropriate for beginners as well as those who have been doing meditation for a number of years. Aside from talking about meditation as a whole, Karen discusses Mindfullness, Concentration, Happiness and really all the "nuts and bolts" that make up meditation. ...more

I started practicing Kundalini Meditation/Yoga and was encouraged to read this book. I was absolutely amazed at all the information that this book contained. I learned so much. I am adding this book to one I want to own and have on my shelf for quick reference. I recommend this to anyone in the pursuit of healing and good health.

This book offers some science about how and why meditation benefits one's health (and Dr. Dharma Singh Khalsa issues a standing offer to share further evidence). I found the information contained here valuable -- the right chanting meditations really have changed my outlook and how I physically feel.

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in better understanding the mind-body connection and the potential power of meditation. The author provides a lot of case studies, which are interesting to read, as well as a number of targeted meditations.

This book was in collaboration with Dharma Singh Khalsa, M D. His meditations and mantras are based on kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. Dr Khalsa and Ms Stauth also collaborated in writing two other books, Brain Longevity and The Pain Cure.

I learned a lot. It's probably not for everyone, but it makes a lot of sense to me. I need to think more about the things Dharma Singh Khalsa explains in this book.

I really love this book. I've purchased more than one copy to loan out. I feel like there's important advice, and that he has included sufficient sources.

I wish he would have explained more about how the mudras affect healing. Otherwise, a decent read, and useful for anyone who wants to try meditation.

I didn't get as much out of this as other meditation books but it introduced me to Khundalini Yoga which I do get a bit out of.

“The secrets of advanced meditation were shrouded in secrecy because of respect for, and even fear of, their innate power. Just as governments guard state secrets of power, the ancient yoga masters guarded these secrets of spiritual power. They believed that power has the capacity to corrupt, and that it would be disastrous for the wrong person to learn these secrets.” 0 likes
