Summary, etc.: "Between the smartphone, laptop, tablet, and whatever else is demanding your attention, sometimes you just need to unplug! Room to Breathe brings you a series of beginner-friendly guided meditations and mindfulness techniques to help you regain a sense of spaciousness and ease. These essential practices were created to give you the feel of a meditation retreat at home--but can be enjoyed in any place conducive to a period of undisturbed quiet. Enhanced by a guidebook with teachings for breaking stressful habits and remembering what's most important, Room to Breathe leads you through eight refreshing exercises including: Calming the Mind--breathing practices to replace anxiety with composure and strength ; Facing Challenges--cultivating courage and compassion to transform your relationship to suffering ; Opening the Heart--a self-directed lovingkindness meditation. 'Going on retreat doesn't remove us from the ups and downs of life,' explains Sharon Salzberg, 'but it provides a way to understand ourselves more fully, to care more deeply for ourselves and others, and to do nothing for a while, with awareness and love.' Find respite whenever you need it with Room to Breathe"--Container.
