Living Calm in a Busy World – a contemporary commentary on the style of meditation created by Dr Ainslie Meares: David Lovell Publishing, Melbourne, Australia 2011
Released December 2011, this is Pauline McKinnon’s follow-up to “In Stillness Conquer Fear”. Living Calm is a contemporary commentary on the work of Ainslie Meares’, its distinctive difference from generic forms of meditation and a practical guide to understanding his therapeutic approach.
With an awareness far ahead of his time, Dr Meares conceived a style of meditation to give rest to the mind so that positive psychological, physiological and spiritual changes could occur. Meares’ aim was primarily to help people reduce tension, experience less anxiety and live with less stress and better health and contentment.
