These short "sits" are ideal for the person who needs to meditate but who feels they don't have the time. Each meditation introduces a principle that can be brought into daily life as a mindfulness practice.
Led by Bodhipaksa from the popular Wildmind meditation teaching resource and Internet site, these Buddhist meditations will help you to develop greater appreciation for every moment of your life.

These short meditations are helpful as a relaxation exercise at the end of the day or as an energizing break before tackling a new task. Bodhipaksa's voice is a bit quirky, but soothing when you get used to it. The pauses between instructions are long enough that he's not interfering with your thoughts, but short enough that your mind doesn't wander off topic.
These meditations are quick and help build a foundation of good techniques. These have helped me in working through my issues with panic attack disorder as well as anxiety. They are by no means a replacement to treatment for me but have given me a guided means of practicing relaxing my mind and body. Bodhipaksa's narration is smooth and easy and not distracting in any way. For anyone dealing with stress or anxiety or are just looking for a way to relax a little more, give it a try. Each meditation session lasts about 8-10 minutes and you can go for longer if you'd like.

There are about 8 or 9 different guided meditations, one in each chapter, making it very easy to switch between them. These guided meditations are short, about ten minutes each and are an ideal listen during your day, when you are waiting in lines or while driving - just don't follow the narrator advice to close your eyes and you'll be fine ;)
I'm listening to this book almost every day and I can already notice the difference in my mood.
I mainly play this audiobook when I go to sleep each night. So soothing and relaxing. The voice of the narrator is my absolute favorite! Just try the sample and you will be hooked.
I'm a teacher overseas. I listen because its nice to hear your native language without music or pictures.
It calms your mind and helps you clear your thoughts. I use it to prepare for the day, especially rough/long days.
I like the Grounding Meditation best.
Me, but calm.
No, it made me empty, full, and empty again.
"Perfect short easy meditations good voice to liste"
Voice not off putting, easy to listen to, easy to fit an 8 minute meditation into everyday life with young children. Thank you Bodhipaksa for helping me to establish a regular meditation practice around my young children
