This book is a thorough, succinct, intelligent guide to leading meditation. I enjoyed it very much. I have worked with seniors for fourteen years and feel this is a much needed resource for the senior care field. The book outlines the benefits of meditation and breathing exercises (physical and emotional) and provides a step-by-step guide so that anyone can lead a group. I found the section on meditation for those with dementia particularly interesting. I had previously thought that this was not a tool available to people with dementia. This book showed me it is and how to make it successful for them. ~Elizabeth Breen, senior care professional

“Easy to follow, step by step, instructions on how to teach people to control their breathing and relax. This book is a wonderful resource not only for caregivers and senior citizens but for people of any age. The more flexible people are, the more stable their bodies and the less likely they are to fall. The peace and sense of vitality that comes from being able to breathe deeply is a gift that keeps on giving as the positive effects are felt throughout the body. I will be using these techniques myself.” ~ Bobbi Carducci, The Imperfect Caregiver Blog
