    Meditation offers deep and lasting benefits for mental functioning and emotional health, as well as for physical health and well-being. These 24 detailed lectures teach you the principles and techniques of sitting meditation, the related practice of walking meditation, and the highly beneficial use of meditative awareness in many important activities, including eating and driving. You will also learn how to use the skills of meditation in working with thoughts and emotional states.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    What was said in this course could have been stated in fewer words. I feel that people over think meditation and that people such as Muesse profit on making it sound more complex than it actually is. I believe that there is a lot of benefit from mediation and that people who are making it more complex than it actually needs to be damage accessibility for beginners.


    Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

    With that said, I love the other "talks" in The Great Course series. I would highly recommend them to people.
