'...in this impeccably researched book he show you how a simple meditative technique evokes the Relaxation Response, which can bring you inner peace and calm. indeed, by reading this book you can easily learn this technique, which you need practice only a few minutes a day, either at home, in your office, or even on your way to work...
The Relaxation Response is based on age-old wisdom common to the religious and meditative practices of almost all the cultures of East and West. In his book, a summation of his own scientific work and thought, Dr. Benson explains how he distilled these practices and concepts and then proved their effectiveness in extensive studies conducted at Harvard's Thorndike Laboratory and at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston.'
