Yes. To pick up more knowledge and for the mediations.
That mediation can affect the brain
I do not know what I expected, a more clinical discussion perhaps, I thought this was going to be more informative and less boring. I have to admit that I have not listened to the entire thing. It was so monotonous and grating on the ears that if I continued to listen I was seriously afraid I would go mad. I do not like to give bad reviews, but I had to on this one, it was that grating. Normally I would have read it long ago and then asked for a refund, But I purchased this with others and frankly forgot about it. Wish I had read it then so I could have returned it.
surprise, I guess I expected more of a clinical discussion
yes, well structured meditations, good for beginners, not too long and very insightful
I liked the last meditation very much
Great book, well written and presented!
Love the meditations
Again, loved the guided meditations, by both men....I ve been trying to find more of them online as I know the both hold a weekly meditation class. Hopefully I will come across them
Depends on when they want to use it. Three quarters of the way through it has some obnoxious chimes that make me jump out of my skin after being very relaxed.
Getting to the point instead of going on and on about what the book was going to say.
Again, get to the point. Clearly the authors didn't have enough material to write a whole book or they wouldn't have spent so much time explaining what they were going to do.
They sounded like they were giving a sales pitch.
Anger and disappointment
I never did get past the sales pitch. I had hoped this would be a relaxing book and, although it did put me to sleep, it was anything but. It reminded me of the advertisements on the internet that claim you can lose weight following one easy step and then go on and on and on...but you never get that tip. I found this book so irritating I didn't even want to fast forward to see if it had anything of substance.
What was most enjoyable was the narration by the authors. The authors made the book therapeutic. They gave each section the imperative view point necessary for the listener to hone in and listen intently!
The most memorable moment was the meditation activities ! This book must be obtained as an audible version I cannot imagine it would be beneficial in paper form.
I enjoyed the professional respectability and authority each Dr. Presented. This was not an ego, battle , it was team work with one goal in mind which is to help the reader develop these new skills!
If I were to make a movie of this book, I would not change it's title, I would add a sub title , Meditation to change your brain and your mind!
Rarely do I encounter a book that I am motivated to complete in one sit that has made profound changes in my life. This book is something I cam apply to my life and I have. The concepts have given me the courage to continue with the personal work I have accomplished. I am a health care professional and I would recommend this book to my clients!
I really liked the brief intro to each meditation, then guided meditation, then conclusive remarks about the meditation format.
I usually read more Buddhist type meditation books but I really found this to be an interesting and helpful departure from my regular meditation practice.
Since starting these meditations, I've can really feel a difference. I've bookmarked the meditation starts and look forward to repeating the most effective ones.
I'm listening to it for the second time now. It explains so much and the meditations are wonderful.
Leave the past behind and develop a happy future.
