A practical guide for people who want to learn meditation free of any of the trappings of religion. The book is a project of the Harvard Humanist Community, which has hosted a secular meditation program for the last five years. The goal of these meditations is to help find joy and relieve stress without having to participate in uncomfortable religious practices. A major emphasis is loving-kindness practice, which helps people experience love and joy in their personal lives, and has the potential of nurturing a more caring society. The anticipated length of the book is 60,000 words. There will be about 35 chapters. These will present meditation and mindfulness exercises with step-by-step instructions, personal stories, discussions and questions for the reader.

display_description Meditation is a form of mental exercise with numerous scientifically verified physical and psychological benefits. As meditation teacher Rick Heller shows, the benefits of the practice extend beyond the personal to enrich relationships with others, with one's community, and with the world. In Secular Meditation, step-by-step instructions, personal stories, and provocative questions teach empathy for others, stress reduction, and the kind of in-the-moment living that fosters appreciation for life and resilience in the face of adversity. Heller simplifies what is often found mysterious, describing and providing detailed instructions for thirty-two different practices, ensuring that anyone can find the right one.
