Meditation and Modern Psychology by Robert Ornstein
Book DescriptionMeditation and Modern Psychology examines meditation from two perspectives: first, from the perspective of religions and philosophies such as Zen, Yoga and from that of the Sufis and Christian mystics; and then from the modern psychologist's point of view -- what is happening neurophysiologically during and after meditation? By looking at meditation from both points of view, Ornstein produces a modern scientific synthesis - one sympathetic to the practice of meditation - enabling the reader to appreciate and understand meditation as a tool which can lead to a different mode of perception. Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., has written more than twenty books on the brain, mind, and consciousness since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1971. This work emphasizes our urgent need and ability to develop perceptions beyond our human inheritance.

What's the Catch?, Paperback / softback (November 2015)» View all books by Robert Ornstein
The third book in the ALL ABOUT ME series examines the ways in which our thinking, feelings, and behavior are influenced by those around us. Sometimes this kind of influence is helpful but at other times it ends up "shortchanging" us. Readers will learn to become more aware of these forces and how to protect themselves from getting "hooked."
