The imaginal vision helps make the experience of meditation more enjoyable by Westerners and simultaneously it serves as support during the journey of personal growth. This book not only explains the fundamentals of the meditation process , they are also provided daily practices for the achievement of important changes Positives in the way of living and thinking .
