Exciting new scientific studies reveal the brain’s life long capacity to change its structure and function – depending upon how we use it. Yet similar studies tell us that the mind is more than the sum of the brain’s physical parts.

With our mind, we create our world. It is our mind that regulates our present and our future. Do you imagine a happier world with better health? More vitality? More success with the ability to fulfil your potential when it comes to sport, business, relationships, healing and peace of mind?

Modern research is confirming ancient wisdom. Truly it is The Mind That Changes Everything and this book tells you how to do it.

Meditation - Pure & Simple - Dr. Ian Gawler
Medical research tells us that meditation reliably prevents illness, maximises performance, is a profound healing technique and leads to peace of mind. Meditation achieves all of this by restoring our natural state of balance. Once we re-establish an inner balance there is a flow-on effect. Soon we experience physical balance and poise, mental clarity and confidence and spiritual harmony. The real secret to all this, is that this balance is found in a state of inner silence. This book details how to relax deeply and how to still the mind. The exercises from this book are also available on the CD: Meditation Pure & Simple.
