Jon hit the nail on the head with this book. It covers everything you need to know to be confident that you know how to use mindfulness meditation in just a few short hours. If you are someone who has bought various books on meditation but are still confused, or are just a plain beginner, this is the audiobook for you.
Guided Meditations included in the book:
(1) 15 minute guided bell meditation at 1:00:57,
(2) 30 minute body scan meditation at 2:38:27, and
(3) 45 minute sitting meditation starting at 5:33:18.
(Side note: Chapters 10 and 11 are repeated. This was a small mistake, but in no way does it detract from my appreciation for this book.)
A practical approach to Zen Buddhism applicable to daily life. It is a condensed version of his books and the author’s voice is in-keeping with the message. But even though I really appreciate the author and I never get tired of reading or listening to his books, it would have been nice not to have to listen twice to chapters 8 and 9 (duplicated in 10 and 11).
