"Luminous Mind is a skillful blend of time-proven antidotes to the stress of modern life." -Dan Goleman, Ph.D., author of Emotional Intelligence

"In this beautifully done book, the Leveys have skillfully woven together contemporary insights into the value and need for meditation practice in our lives with a large number of extremely evocative suggestions for making use of different ways to practice relaxation, concentration, and meditation. It's a real gem." -John Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., author of Wherever You Go, There You Are
The definitive mental fitness manual, Luminous Mind offers a unique and uncomplicated process for engaging fully in life, feeding your soul, and releasing your mind and spirit from the bonds of stress and worry.

Stressed out and self-medicating with stimulants and cable TV is the norm in today's society. The only solution, aside from retreating to a mountaintop, is to harness the power of your mind and breath through meditation.

In this concise and clear guidebook, Joel and Michele Levey, the authors of The Fine Arts of Relaxation and A Moment to Relax, teach the same techniques for meditation, focus, and anxiety relief they have taught to Navy Seals, the United States Army, and countless business leaders around the world.

In what is truly an introduction to personal mastery, the Leveys demystify this spiritual practice and provide a complete overview of every kind of meditation, condensing their lifetime of learning into this remarkably useful book.

Joel and Michelle Levey were among the very first to bring mindfulness teachings to mainstream groups and organizations beginning in the 1970s. They have taught tens of thousands of people in hundreds of leading corporations, medical centers, universities, sports, government, and military arenas. They are the founders of Wisdom at Work.
