    You can't get away from suffering. That's the good news, teaches Pema Chodron. For at the core of your most painful experiences, you will find the seeds of your awakening. On Noble Heart, this best-selling author and Tibetan Buddhist nun shows you how vulnerability is our greatest spiritual resource amid life's difficulties. Using special meditations and teachings, she shows how to cultivate your own noble heart, one that sheds its armor, and opens fearlessly to both heartache and delight.

    Overall

    I am an avid reader and listener of lectures, information, historical precedents and things of this nature. This was the single worst book I ever bought from Audible. It is mind-numbing with monotony, which by itself could theoretically invoke meditation, but this is the lecture. There are countless better books, writers and narrators.
    I mean no disrespect to any other reviewers who rated this title favorably and I hope they continue to receive a benefit from it. Please reconisder a dozen times before wasting a credit on this. There are countless great books here in every genre, I wouldn't impose this on anyone.

    Ceaseless musings distract from actual meditation. This is not a book to learn meditation, it is not a book if you enjoy guided meditation, in fact, this is not a book; it is a disorganized aggregate of under or entirely undeveloped points delivered in a monotone, lifeless presentation.

    These easy-to-follow guided meditations involve beautifully crafted stories with music and natural sound effects. Each track will ease you into a deep state of relaxation, where you can tap into the restoring power of meditation.

    Overall

    If the pace of the day leaves you exhausted and unable to become calm or sleep; peace of mind in a click away.

    I'm skeptical by nature and discount reviews, as you may feel free to do so here, but this s a wonderful experience and a tool for peace and serenity. I have a fast-paced career and am recovering from a long-term injury. Reducing the use of medication for pain resulted in sleep deprivation. I just listened to this and relaxed, slept and lost all sense of time.

    The narrator's voice is beautiful, soothing and feminine. I grew up in Britain and loved listening to her. I will absolutely purchase more, or all, of these audiobooks.

    I have no finanacial interest in these products and ensorse them whole-heartedly.
