The Mindful Geek Is Out!

TheMindfulGeek-3d CoverWant to get the benefits of mindfulness without having to join a religion? 

Want to learn to meditate within a completely scientific, secular worldview?

Let me tell you a bit about my new book, which just got published. Called The Mindful Geek, it shows you how to derive the real world benefits of hardcore mindfulness meditation without having to drink the metaphysical Kool-Aid. I give step-by-step instructions in the powerful and reliable techniques of mindfulness meditation, and outlines the psychological and neuroscientific research underpinning these practices — all without you having to believe in reincarnation, karma, or other sacred cows.IMG_7163_30-crop

By treating mindfulness as a scientifically-based, psychological technique, you can keep your atheistic or agnostic secular skepticism and still maintain a powerful, regular, and deeply effective meditation practice. That’s because meditation doesn’t require you to believe in it to work. Like any good technology, if you use it correctly, it will do the job reliably whether you believe in it or not. And—let’s be clear about this—meditation is a kind of technology; a technology for hacking the human wetware in order to improve your life. This book is a practical, hands-on manual about how to make the most of that technology for yourself.

If you are smart, skeptical, technically-inclined, and have a desire to see what meditation is really all about, this book is for you. I have taught meditation at tech companies like Google, InteraXon, and others, so this material has been field-tested on some world-class übergeeks. If this sounds interesting to you, order your copy today.

  1. Hi Michael, I heard about this book on the not so smart podcast.
    Is there any chance I can buy the book in epub format somewhere?
    I don’t have a kindle and I also don’t like to wait and pay for the shipping of a paper book.
    It’s too bad that I missed the crowd funding, or I would have an epub version already.

  2. Hi Michael,

    I have listened to your very interesting interview on the “you’re not so smart” podcast and would love to read the book – but also need an epub version.

    Thanks a lot
