Richard Explains Humanist Meditation in Interview with HSGP Sunday Speaker Event



The book that got me started – Possibly the first book published from a western scientist regarding the physiological effects of meditation:

  • Herbert Benson and Miriam Z. Klipper (1975), The Relaxation Response: HarperCollins. Secular Meditation book – An excellent resource for anyone interested in learning a wide perspective on meditation practice from a scientific and Humanist perspective.

Other books I recommend:

  • Rick Heller and Greg Epstein (2015), Secular Meditation: 32 Practices for Cultivating Inner Peace, Compassion, and Joy – A Guide from the Humanist Community at Harvard: New World Library. Starter Meditation book – A great way for beginners to learn meditation from a former skeptic.
  • Dan Harris, Jeffery Warren, Carlye Adler (2017), Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: A 10% Happier How-to Book: Harmony. The science of meditation – To learn more about the science of meditation and how to practice more effectively, this is a great addition to your reading list.
  • Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson (2017), Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body: Penguin Random House LLC. Humanism – A fun introduction.
  • Jennifer Hancock (2011), Jen Hancock’s Handy Humanism Handbook: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Humanism – A comprehensive guide.
  • Roy Speckhardt (2015), Creating Change Through Humanism: Humanist Press.
