Why Can't I Meditate?: How to Get Your Mindfulness Practice on Track Reviews

  • Jessica Lutz

    I've needed this book in a very real way. Absolutely just what I needed. One of those rare books I need to OWN to keep coming back to!

  • catherine newman

    Good sound advice for establishing a meditation practice. Working with the ideas presented has provided me with additional information to carry me through a plateau I was experiencing in my own practice.

  • Jane

    In spite of the odd title, this is one of the best books on mindfulness meditation I've read. It combines psychology with mindfulness-based stress reduction practices and gives an extensive explanation of the benefits of meditation as well as the reasons that many of us resist continuing a daily practice.

  • Patrick

    Very practical and readable. Will keep coming back to this. Highly recommended to anyone interested in meditation.

  • Edward Watson

    I liked this, and will keep it lying around to come back to. Why can't I meditate? turned into I can meditate! after reading, not because I had become objectively better, but in that I realised that my constant drone of 'Am I doing this right? Am I thinking too much?' was counterproductive, and that I should just go with it. The most useful piece of advice was that having to return to a self-aware present state was an important part of meditation, and you shouldn't scold yourself for needing to

You set yourself up to fail if you begin meditation with the expectation of staying perfectly in the present at all times.

    I will read and reread this book a few times. Even bought a hard copy of it for references and practice.

  • Anita

    I liked this book and found it extremely helpful to start a daily meditation habit I’ve kept up for a couple of months now. I highly recommend if you also want to start a daily meditation habit.

  • Lauren

    This book was slow going for me, but the information in it incredibly helpful for someone who has meditated before but hasn't kept up a regular practice and wants to.

  • Kelly Jones

    A quick read that relies heavily on situational examples rather than direct applications and suggestions for increasing meditation/mindfulness. I was expecting more of a how-to, but still enjoyed the book and feel that I got some info out of it that'll be useful as I continue on my quest to become more mellow.

  • Ajay Palekar

    This was not a book for me. This is a book for anyone who is thinking about meditating, who wants to meditate but is finding it hard to start and continue or who has started but has stopped again. It presumes that reader is interested in trying meditation and for whatever motivation (to have a better life or find spiritual progress) wants to pursue it.

    Perhaps to someone like that this might be a useful guide, promising to share practical tips to actually dedicate yourself to the practice.

    But as a skeptic, who has learned meditation and rejected it. This book doesn't actually speak much about those core motivations, natures, and harder questions.
