Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics

January 06, 20242 min read

“Meditation forces you into a direct collision with a fundamental fact of life that is not often pointed out to us: we all have a voice in our heads. - Jeff Warren


Meditation, for many, is an enigma wrapped in incense and draped in a yoga mat. But, "Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" is the book that demystifies it all, perfect for meditation newbies, the disillusioned, the skeptics, and even those wary of its supposed clash with religious beliefs.

8 Reasons

Meditation is not about feeling a certain way. It’s about feeling the way you feel.👊 ~Jeff Warren

I've been dabbling in meditation for years – and by dabbling, I mean hanging on to guided meditations for dear life. Without them, my mind becomes a playground for 'mindnoids' - those uninvited, often intrusive thoughts that hijack our brains and send us spiraling down mental rabbit holes.

Five chapters in, and my understanding of meditation has been transformed. Meditation isn't about forcing your brain into a state of blankness; it's about changing how you interact with your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. It's about awareness, not absence of thought.

What resonates with me the most is learning to cut myself some slack for not achieving that 'empty mind' state. This book offers a fresh take – meditation is less about emptying your mind and more about understanding and accepting your experiences.

Authors Dan Harris and Jeff Warren provide practical, down-to-earth advice for embarking on your meditation journey. They debunk the myth that meditation requires sitting cross-legged for half an hour in silence. It's more about the practice and being kind to yourself as you forge a new relationship with your mind. They’ve taught me that it’s okay to experiment and that even a minute of meditation is worthwhile.

Jeff, the meditation guru, dishes out practical tips and exercises to strengthen your meditation 'muscle', while Dan, the relatable voice behind the book, reassures us that you don’t need to be a guru to reap the benefits of meditation.

As I continue my Audible journey, I'm excited to see where this path leads and how it transforms me. Stay tuned for more insights as I delve deeper into the world of meditation.
