Why do we meditate? The main reason most modern people start meditating is because it helps us feel better - reducing anxiety, improving sleep, decluttering the mind, and so forth. Any meditator who sticks with it long enough will hit a turning point, when the methods that once brought inner peace stop working like they used to. In Reverse Meditation, Holecek reveals that's when our practice really begins - when we are called to throw out any assumption that meditation somehow insulates us from the confusion, suffering, and uncertainty of life.

With his signature blend of depth and accessibility, Holecek teaches three expansive approaches to meditation - shamatha-based mindfulness, open awareness, and the boundary-smashing reverse meditations - along with on-the-spot practices for snapping into a meditative mindset even in trying moments. "What you once tried to escape with meditation now becomes your practice," he says. "This leads you to the discovery of unconditional happiness, basic goodness, and true freedom in the most turbulent situations."
