Author Julien Bouchard has mined more than four decades of experience researching and practicing meditation to produce the new nonfiction book “Discoveries through Meditation” (published by Trafford Publishing).

“In our modern and hyperactive world people are becoming more and more confused and insecure,” Bouchard writes. “This book could help them understand what is important and what is not and extend them a happier life.”

The following excerpt from “Discoveries through Meditation” is about meditation:

“A discipline practiced in order to become conscious of the thought process, then to realize that it is uncontrollable and finally to ignore it. Meditation allows one to reach a superior level of consciousness and in the end to transcend matter, pierce through illusion and reach liberation. Meditation on emptiness is by far the most direct and quickest approach to achieve the goal. This type of meditation does not require any efforts or analysis. The observer concentrates on emptiness while he stays focused on a point spot in his head, an object ahead of him or on his breathing without letting the target invade him or becoming the target. In this state the adept establishes mental silence and in the internal peace, observes. Knowledge surfaces from the silence. The observer must avoid all efforts and, like a baby filled with wonder, look upon creation as it really is.”

Bouchard believes readers, after finishing “Discoveries through Meditation,” will “… understand meditation techniques and how to practice this discipline. They will also obtain a vision of what meditation practice can bring to oneself.”
