Winnipeg, MB (Vocus/PRWEB) March 15, 2011
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Meditation and the Evolution of Cosmic Consciousness. Authored by Don Ayre, this book introduces readers to the different kinds of meditation to help them enhance their well-being.
This book is about the little-known fact that there are four different kinds of meditation—Witness Meditation, Transformative Meditation, Discursive Meditation, and Transcendental Meditation. More often, each kind of meditation is promoted and practiced apart from the others. But combined as a process, they lead to cosmic consciousness and more loving attitude toward one’s self and planet Earth. Meditation and the Evolution of Cosmic Consciousness attempts to identify the process in a way that can be imitated. Don Ayre has reviewed his private practice as a family and child therapist and the writings of a number of historical figures that he recognizes as “great minds” for evidences of cosmic consciousness that can be used to build a living model.
Meditation and the Evolution of Cosmic Consciousness is the author’s invitation to the readers to examine the uses of meditation and the writings of their favorite authors and to contribute their thoughts and ideas that will assist with the evolution of cosmic consciousness.

About the Author
Don Ayre was born on May 10, 1935 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He received his early training as a family and child therapist at the University of Manitoba in his hometown of Winnipeg and then took postgraduate studies at the University of Chicago and the University of Pittsburgh. He was director of research at Family and Childrens Services of Pittsburgh from 1961 to 1966. He taught at the University of Manitoba from 1966 to 1872 when he went into private practice. His private practice was based on a unique combination of the theories of Erich Fromm (The Art of Loving) and Carl Jung (Modern Man in Search of a Soul), and also the writings of de Chardin, Einstein, Fuller, Maharishi, Krishnamurti, and, most recently, Deepak Chopra.
Ayre became semiretired in 1995. He is a strong advocate for peace and continues to write articles and to conduct workshops based on human dialogue. He and his wife, Jean, live in Winnipeg, as do their two sons with their wives and families. They have five granddaughters and three great-grandchildren.
