Getting in the Gap:
Making Conscious Contact with God Through Meditation

by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

This slim volume and CD set from Wayne Dyer contains an effective technique for quieting the mind, gaining a connection with a power higher than yourself, and obtaining focus to help you achieve your goals. It is not traditional meditation. How you feel about this book depends on how you feel about meditation. Serious meditation students who lean towards disciplines like Zen or Vipassana will probably find fault with the New Age-y approach Dyer takes and will have little use for this meditation technique. On the other hand, busy Westerners who need a pause in their day to relieve stress, gain concentration, and remember what's really important in life will find a lot of value in this little book and the two brief meditation sessions on the CD. Getting in the Gap could even serve to spark an interest in authentic meditation for some.

Getting in the Gap is actually the perfect introduction to quieting the mind for most Westerners: not only does it slow down the thought process, it offers a connection to God (whatever that means for you), and it can be goal-oriented, if you want that. It's meditation for people who have a life they don't want to abandon, and who want to enjoy the material world, not relinquish it. There's certainly nothing wrong with that; in fact there's everything right with this concept. Most Westerners are not searching for enlightenment or even Samadhi. They just want to get through their day with some sort of serenity and peace. Dyer's book shows a very nice way of achieving that. And if more people were to practice any form of simple meditation, such as the one Dyer presents in this book, they would spread their sense of peace to those around them and the world would be a more pleasant place to inhabit. That's why Getting in the Gap is a small gem, a great gift for anyone with a hectic lifestyle (that means you, too). Those who are searching out serious meditation techniques are welcome to look elsewhere.
