Publisher’s Description: 

A no-nonsense guide to establishing a personal meditation practice, changing your life, and taking hold of your dreams

I have a confession, writes author Justin Michael Williams. This is not really a meditation book.

Yes, Williams is going to teach you everything you need to know about meditationbut if you came looking for a typical book on mindfulness, youre in the wrong place.

We are modern people in a high-tech world. We have first world problems and long to-do lists. And if you grew up in struggleovercoming homophobia, sexism, trauma, shame, depression, poverty, toxic masculinity, racism, or social injustice you need a different type of meditation . . . one that doesnt pretend the struggle doesnt exist.

Now, Williams introduces Freedom Meditationa distinct approach that addresses disillusionment, social justice, overwhelm, and shame; strengthens intuition; cuts through self-doubt; and empowers you to make better decisions.

Here you will discover:

-The five myths that create roadblocks to meditation
-Why thoughts influence reality, but don't create it
-How to actually find stillness when your mind is going crazy
-What nobody tells you about setting intentions and the scientific process of manifestation
-Why most guided meditations get boring after a while
-Four hidden habits that sabotage your growthand how to move past them
-Why you must turn toward toxic thoughts rather than just papering over them with positivity
-The opportunity and danger of getting creative ideas during meditation
-Proven techniques to overcome anxiety, stress, and trouble sleeping
-Daily rituals that cement and enrich your practice
-How to use mindfulness to take action toward the causes you believe in and get sh!t done

Whether youve tried meditation but it never sticks, or youve heard about it but never gave it a shot, Williams will guide you step by step in creating a custom meditation ritual that fits in with your busy (and sometimes messy!) modern life. With free downloadable audio meditations every step of the way, Stay Woke gives people of all genders, identities, colors, religions, ages, and economic backgrounds the tools to stop wasting time, overcome self-doubt, and wake up to the lives we were really born to live.
