Meditation for Your Life
Released September 2012 by Llewellyn Worldwide
Engage in the process of self-inquiry and understanding with expert teacher Robert Butera. All meditation methods are valid forms of practice, but they don’t fit everyone alike. Meditation for Your Life explains the six basic forms and guides readers in identifying which ones suit them best. Questions and answers, exercises, and journaling engage readers in learning what steps they can take to make meditation (and its benefits) an enduring part of their lives. Wellness and inner calm are achievable goals with suitable meditation styles—using techniques of breathwork or visualization, mantra or devotion, mindfulness or contemplation. Includes special emphasis on overcoming frequent blocks to inner growth.

Praise and Endorsements for Meditation for Your Life
“Highly recommended for teachers, students and health professionals.” —Larry Payne, PhD, Co-Author, Yoga for Dummies, Yoga Rx, and The Business of Teaching Yoga
“Grounded in age-old traditions yet using contemporary research, this book helps readers learn about the benefits of meditation and provides foundational instructions.” —Christopher Key Chapple PhD, author of Yoga and the Luminous
“You could have no better guide through the 6 major meditation styles than master yogi and scholar Robert Butera . . . Whether you teach meditation or are taking your first step into practice, this book belongs by your cushion!” —Amy Weintraub, MFA, ERYT-500, founder of the LifeForce Yoga Healing Institute, and author Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists
“Butera packs his book with insightful information for both beginners and more experienced meditators who want to tailor a practice to their individual needs. This manual can keep you occupied for months, even years – especially if you refer to it regularly as your practice evolves.” -Yoga Journal, Nov 2012
“Meditation for Your Life takes both the novice and veteran meditator on experiential discovery tour to refine, remind and invite the reader to practice. The careful treatment of familial faith practices is sensitive, but direct, while allowing readers to understand they have probably had meditative experiences under different names in their past. The text also lends itself as a great study guide for Yoga teacher trainings with transferable embodied lessons for teachers to share with their future students.”- Matthew J. Taylor, PT, PhD, E-RYT 500, Professional Yoga Therapist & creator of The Dynamic Systems Rehabilitation (DSR) Method.
