Excerpt from Bliss More


"It’s very hard." "I don’t have time." "I’m not in the mood." 

These are common excuses I’ve used in the past for not enjoying a regular, daily, seated meditation practice. Do any of them sound familiar?

My involvement in meditation dates back nearly twenty years, but I will tell you up front that the overwhelming majority of my initial efforts were, at best, mediocre and, at worst, an exercise in futility—and by initial I’m referring to the first few years of dabbling...

Learn how to succeed in meditation without really trying


From one of America’s top meditation teachers comes a revolutionarily simple approach to an everyday practice—especially if you don’t think you have the time or the patience.

Imagine you’re sitting on a cushion with your legs crossed, ready to tap into unlimited joy. There’s just one problem: You can’t get comfortable (let alone still), and your head is full of way too many thoughts.

The problem is not with meditation, or you, though—the issue may be with your approach.

When properly understood and practiced, meditation should feel easy, calming, and comfortable. In Bliss More, maverick instructor Light Watkins provides the tools for making meditation E.A.S.Y. (Embrace, Accept, Surrender, Yield), dispels the biggest myths and misunderstandings, and shares real-world tips and straight talk for hacking into this ancient practice. The result: a happier and healthier you, inside and out. Watkins also shares candid testimonials from people whose lives have been enriched through his method, and extensive resources for transforming a daily chore into an enjoyable activity. Even the biggest skeptic will look forward to sitting for meditation every day.

Whether you’re a novice or experienced practitioner, Bliss More will shed light on the path to a clearer mind, better sleep, and more bliss in everyday life.

Letter from Light

I wrote Bliss More to help people like you find happiness where it truly resides—within.

More than that, I wanted to show you, the reader, how to access your bliss using a time-tested (yet counter-intuitive) approach to meditation that happens to not only be incredibly effective, but easy and even enjoyable... hence, the subtitle, How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying (this is not hyperbole. I literally mean you will learn how to meditate without feeling like you need to force anything to happen). 

There's so much confusion around the practice of meditation, and the goal of Bliss More is to cut through a lot of the misconceptions and B.S. that makes meditation feel unnecessarily "H.A.R.D."


Once you start reading Bliss More, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how accessible meditation can actually be and how relevant of a practice it is for everyone—especially for busy people with busy minds. 

You may not have realized this, but most meditation books aren't written by meditation teachers. They have been written by doctors, psychologists, monks, motivational speakers, internet marketers, yogis, researchers, or celebrities who have spent a few years meditating. But very few books have been written by people who have spent their days, months, and years teaching regular people (non-monks) how to meditate with ease and how to track their progress over years and years.

My history as one of the most effective and experienced meditation teachers (of thousands of regular people like you) makes me uniquely qualified to spread this message of how to bring more bliss into your meditation and life, and I can't wait to share it with you!

I'm positive that you'll find it to be a most useful tool for starting or refining your meditation practice.
