Modern society has made ‘sitting still’ even more difficult with its tempting mantra of always being ‘connected’. Our brains never get a break, and the result can be increased stress, anxiety, insomnia and, if left unchecked, depression.

Matthew Johnstone’s new book, a follow up to his bestselling Black Dog series, is a simple, accessible step-by-step guide on how to meditate. Stripping back the mystical concepts that often put meditation in the ‘too hard’ basket for many of us, Johnstone’s book utilises his trademark stunning illustrations to make meditation as simple as sitting back, learning to breathe, and finding that quiet space to relax, recharge, and thrive in our modern world.

No chants, no chakras: a modern way to meditate
Johnstone’s preferred mode of communication is art; humorous, profound, cartoon-like pictures that he draws himself to explain the practice of meditation in call-a-spade-a-spade terms Carol Midgley
