"[A] valuable addition to the medical, scientific and spiritual communities . . ." - Sun-Hoo Foo, MD. Clinical professor of Neurology, NYU Langone medical center

People regret the things they did and the things they fail to do. There should be peace. Meditation is the way. Yet, it has been made more complex than necessary. This book proposes a simple way which is even easier than the popular mindfulness approach. Peace and Beads: Neural Mechanism of Meditation recommends a more straightforward practice. The suggestion is backed by reasoning with available scientific data.

The procedure does not have to be complicated to be effective. Motivation will come when the mechanism is understood. With random thoughts deflected by beads, neural re-organization of memories will take place in the unconscious. Emotion will move towards peace. The practice is like the using of the key to open the door. The capacity is innate.
