Conversations Beyond Science and Religion – How to Meditate Naturally

Meditation is in vogue. A recent cover story of Scientific American discusses The Neuroscience of Meditation.  Noted atheist, Sam Harris, has recently written about the benefits of mediation, and meditation appears as the circle-drive to the new spirituality movement.  But what exactly is mediation and how does one perform this feat of inner knowing?  It turns out the answer is not that hard. According to this week’s guest, Dean Sluyter, author of the new book, Natural Meditation: A Guide to Effortless Meditative Practice, the answer is by not trying.  Meditation is just being; a natural state.  Listen in as Philip and Dean meditate upon how easy it is to just be.
