Adopt the pace of nature: Her secret is patience

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The warmer weather, the clearer skies, the birds singing, the abundant daylight – this time of year always seems to lend itself to meditation. The National Institutes of Health tells us in Meditation in Depth, that we only need 4 things for meditation: 1) A quiet location 2) comfortable posture 3) a focus of attention and 4) an open attitude.

If you would like to explore meditation further, listed below are some recent items in the library collection.
