The best most simplistic Meditation guide book I have ever read. If you are interested in starting meditation in your life or have started and want clarity to get this book! Yanjuan writes with an energy of wisdom that is simple and clear. In Meditation Routine we learn what meditation is and its goal. We learn the different types of meditation (Yanjuan teaches us the Chinese form of meditation). We learn meditation is more than just sitting crossed leg and chanting mantras as there is a wonderful section for all those who say they would like to meditate and can’t. Surprise you can! This section is awesome and you just will have to read it yourself to find out how you don’t have to remain still to meditate. The only downside is I wish this book was on Audible. It would be perfect.


Yanjuan Lou was born in Shenyang, China. China is a very conformed society with an extremely low tolerance for mediocrity or mistakes. She has spent most of her time in China being told what to do, then doing it. This was just how things were there. Before she left China on a personal quest, she had written non-fiction books. The topics she usually used to write about were often related to health, beauty products, and financing. Her husband, daughter, and herself–moved to California in 2015. By then, she was ready to leave China behind— not for good—but at the time, it matched with where she was in her life. Besides, while visiting the U.S., she realised that if she really was going to spread her message and enter a new phase of life, she needed to relocate away from her past. She dabbled in a few different jobs after moving to the U.S. She was a customer service representative for a travel agency, and then later, she got a second job as a model for the occasional magazine ad and the like. However, neither of these was very fulfilling. Even worse, they were extremely stressful. They ate up all of her time, paid marginally well at best, and were beyond demanding. She hit a point where she couldn’t take it anymore. She has left those jobs behind and has finally decided to return to her passion for writing. She truly believes in her heart that a person, regardless of age, culture, family inventions, can learn to live in harmony with themselves.
