Giovanni doesn't really go into his personal story and experience much, but I know from reading his blog that he is a very deep thinker and a true expert in the art of meditation (I think he has around 8-9000 hours formal practice in a variety of techniques, and has had deep insight experiences), not just another person jumping on the ever-growing bandwagon of selling anything to do with meditation. I highly recommend it for beginners all the way through to those with hundreds of hours of practice under their belts.
You can follow one of his online courses, just search his name online. On his courses, he will guide you on a daily step by step introduction to different types of meditation, (allowing each new meditation type at least a week to get to 'know' deeply enough). By the end of it all, you will probably have found the one for you. Giovanni can start at the very basics, if you are new to the subject and not expect you to do more than 2 minutes on the first day, and an extra minute if you feel ready for it the next day till a maximum of 20+ min/day. There are also zoom meetings on different subject about twice a month, where again you can, if you want, take part in the discussion and suggest further topics.
You can also try some of his guided meditations and listen to many of his lessons free on YouTube.
This book is again an easy to read and to follow guide to meditation. It is not a thickly written book, but it is full of pictures and 'diagrams' to help you understand and retain concept better, particularly if you are like me a visual learner (most people are so).
G. Dienstmann wants to reach as many people as possible with his teaching, which have brought and are still bringing deep changes to his life for the past 30 years. I know he is a genuine persons for many other reasons, but this is not the forum for talking about this.
Meditation is not just done sitting down!
So plenty to choose and decide which meditation suits you best!
