Reviews - What do customers think about Slow Down: Five-Minute Meditations to De-Stress Your Days?
Beware!!! Jan 31, 2006
I purchased this little book, hoping it would be helpful as a stress-reducer for myself and my clients.
Instead, I was appalled by the author's extolling the praises of President Bush because he "prays". Perhaps. There was another little story of Condi Rice praying with the insiders at Camp David.
All of the stories are meant to be heart warming, and are, by and large, anonymous and therefore more universal in appeal.
However, with the current state of our nation, I would have much preferred to keep out current politicos.
Otherwise, the book is a lightweight. You can do better with many other books out there.
One highlight: the author will refund your money if you don't have a reduction of stress or increase of stillness in your life!

Fr. Champlin offers a collection of 101 spiritual messages, each accompanied by a suggestion for reflection and a prayer taken from the psalms. The introduction discusses the stress-reducing effect of even short meditation and offers techniques for using the book effectively. Meditation topics include forgiving others, being a Good Samaritan, learning from painful experiences, and developing our gifts. This would be a good resource for leaders of faith sharing or bible study groups. The leader could open to any page for an immediate discussion starter, complete with suggested actions and prayer.
