There are quite a few intense titles in this current Cygnus, many of them from Inner Traditions, but I like what they do: they genuinely try to push the boundaries and have no intention of being purely commercial. Neuroaffective Meditation combines meditation, psychology and neuroscience (which the author has studied for 25 years) and is specifically formulated to work with embedded trauma. From that point of view, it’s a great validation that her book carries a foreword by Peter Levine, author of Waking the Tiger and pioneer in this field. The book contains 16 guided meditations which are also available online. It’s exciting when an experienced author offers a curriculum that takes into account how the brain matures and develops; thus this book is a practical and effective manual for spiritual development.
