There Is No Right Way To Meditate: Revised and Expanded Edition

Andrews McMeel. Jul. 2023. 160p. ISBN 9781524875053. pap. $16.99. SELF-HELP
Comic book artist Sakugawa (I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You) has written a new and revised edition of her earlier book. In keeping with the author’s previous work, this is a how-to guide to meditation, told in a graphic-novel format. A skillful artist, Sakugawa gently provides reassurances, whimsy, and approachable encouragement along with calming ink illustrations to help people meditate. Occasionally, the author reminds readers that there is no one way to meditate and that meditation is not the answer to every one of life’s issues. This new and revised edition contains added mini-sections on grounding, inner child, self-love, and other subjects.
VERDICT A supportive volume for someone at any stage of experience in meditation. Beginners may be the prime beneficiaries, but those with additional practice may appreciate the author’s approach as well. Sakugawa’s artistry and gentle humor aids greatly in making this an approachable volume.
