Product Details


“A very helpful book for anyone who wants to meditate. Bill’s decades of dedicated practice, training in psychotherapy, and deep care for others all come together beautifully in The Meditator’s Dilemma. He has a knack for articulating particular ways to support the Western mind in approaching meditation practice.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness
“This delightful, inspiring, and practical book can help transform anyone’s meditation practice from a struggle to a joy. Based on years of experience as a gifted psychologist and meditation teacher, Dr. Morgan lucidly shows us how to avoid the pitfalls that make meditation unnecessarily difficult, while finding ways to harness our surprisingly natural capacity for clarity and ease. Full of wisdom and compassion, it’s a must-read for all who wish to deepen and enliven their meditation practice and live a richer, happier, more connected life.”—Ronald D. Siegel, Psy.D.,
author of The Mindfulness Solution

“Have you ever wanted to know the secret of a happy meditator?  With disarming candor and delightful humor, psychologist Bill Morgan shares hard-won insights gleaned from over 40 years on the cushion. He shows us how to bring the qualities of play, delight, gratitude, warmth, and tenderness to mindfulness meditation practice, while remaining rooted in the ancient teachings of the Buddha. This book has the power to liberate the hearts of both novice and seasoned meditators. Spare yourself unnecessary struggle and read it now!”—Christopher Germer, PhD, author, The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion

“In The Meditator’s Dilemma, Bill Morgan offers us some of the many fruits of his long meditation experience. His first-hand experience of grappling with the dilemmas that confront most meditators helps illuminate some of the common difficulties and struggles we encounter on the path. In this very helpful book, he offers a wide array of skillful suggestions that allow for a natural and more easeful unfolding of our insight and understanding.”—Joseph Goldstein, author of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening
“A noteworthy reevaluation of one Westerner’s initial enthusiasm over mindfulness meditation. William Morgan shares his frustrations and his solutions in this timely work.”—Mark Epstein, MD, author of The Trauma of Everyday Life
