Responding to the often-asked question "What is the benefit of meditation and music?", co-author Dudley Evenson shares, "What we endeavored to accomplish with Quieting The Monkey Mind, is to help make meditation understandable, accessible and simple to do. At its core, meditation is the inner training of our mental processes to attain a calm state of centered balance, awareness and spiritual expansiveness. It is a powerful and beneficial tool that can assist you in all aspects of your life. Silence and music are not only calming but deeply healing."
