us believe that our experiences of mental anguish and unhappiness are
caused by external forces: people and events outside of ourselves. Our
information here is based on a discovery that negative emotions
(sadness, pain, anger, violence...) often come from certain processes
within the mind. The mind can interpret and distort information that it
receives, play back inaccurate information, and literally force us to
think and feel in ways that we may not want. Often, we may want to be
happy and calm, but our minds can habitually repeat painful or provoking
thoughts that make us lose our natural serenity. On this website, along
with this unique Here & Now Meditation method, you will find more
information on the processes of our minds, how these processes can cause
us to suffer, AND you will find a way we can correct them.
We have condensed
the information and put it in a booklet format. You can either

PRINT IT directly from the web site or you can

Who We Are and Why We’re Here
to the Here & Now Meditation Foundation. We are an organization
dedicated to helping people overcome suffering so that they can find
lasting happiness. We are not affiliated with any religious or political
group. This site is meant to provide free information to all.
Our information comes in four formats: a full-length
book, a short
e-book, and an
e-booklet. The e-book and e-booklet
are free of charge and available
in various forms on this site. The full-length printed book is available
for purchase through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and other regular book
stores. Feel free to browse the e-book and e-booklet —they are free of
charge, for you
to read and distribute to others.
Originally, we had only a short booklet as our main form of
information. After distributing more than 30,000 copies of this earlier
version, we found that many readers wanted more information on both the
method and the knowledge underlying it. This led to the publication of
our book, The Here & Now Meditation: A Quick and Effective Way to
Overcome Suffering. (The booklet available on this site is a revised
short version based upon this new book.)
The first paperback, limited hardcover and the full length e-book editions are available for purchase or order
through all bookstore systems.
realize that not everyone has the patience to read lengthy material. So,
from the new book, we’ve condensed it back into a new booklet version of
about 29 letter-size pages long. Although brief, this booklet has the
basic information needed to overcome suffering and unhappiness. It is
available for free on this website in three formats:
be accessed online as a webpage)
Printer-friendly version (text only, no links)
downloading as a PDF file)
Since 2002, we have been providing free printed booklets to various
groups such as spiritual non-profit organizations, meditation groups in
needy areas, and inmates interested in meditation. If your organization
wishes to have these booklets printed and distributed to addiction
rehabilitation centers, inmates and others with similar needs, please
let us know.
Currently, we are translating both the book and the booklet into other
languages. We greatly welcome and appreciate any help in translation and
distribution for other countries.
May we all be blessed with peace and joy.
