Publisher's Summary

What if you turned to meditation for the sheer enjoyment of it? That may sound unlikely, but when we approach the practice with playfulness, receptivity, and excitement, meditation can become one of the most intimate and fulfilling relationships we will ever have.

On Beginning Meditation, master teacher Sally Kempton welcomes newcomers to a practice based on embracing the fullness of our experience - and reconnecting with the love, compassion, and wisdom that we are in our essence. Beginning Meditation gives you a richly informative program for a rendezvous with your innermost self, through insights and techniques including:

  • How to choose a core practice that will become your meditation home base
  • The key principles of practice - and their inherent paradoxes
  • How to experiment with other techniques - and ultimately transcend technique entirely
  • Six guided meditations to support your evolving practice

"Meditation is a journey," says Kempton, "and the secret is to stay on the map." Beginning Meditationoffers a struggle-free way to create a practice infused with love and fueled by the spirit of adventure.

    "Beautifully done"

    I've listened while doing the dishes and I've listened while sitting quietly; the first was interesting and the latter was profoundly moving.

    "Snap, crackle, pop!"

    I think this might have been a really interesting book, but there were some issues with the recording that made it almost impossible to listen to. Throughout, there are all kinds of crackling and clicking sounds that are magnified to a distracting degree. I think the narrator had a really dry mouth and that the microphone was too sensitive. The fact that this is a quiet kind of book with lots of pauses made the distracting noises even more noticeable. I stuck with it to the end because it was so short, but for me the book was really un-listenable.
