    "A Compassionate guide"
    Any additional comments?

    I can't say enough about how much I appreciate listening and relistening to this recording. Jack Kornfield uses humor, insight, and great compassion to put words to whatever disaster has occurred in your life. He then gently guides the listener through a series of mediations that help to inspire, strengthen and provide perspective. He says that it isn't a self help book, but help it does. The author provides a new way of viewing the world and teaches a set of coping skills that really make a difference. The narration is centered, evenly paced and calming. The content is humane and kind. Highly recommended listening.

    "Masterfully Done!"
    Any additional comments?

    This is exactly what we need for those times when our heart is breaking; or when our life is crumbling around us. His gentle voice is like balm to help us get through the painful times when those closest to us betray and deeply hurt us. He is the light when it seems as if the world is just not fair.

    "Anything by Jack Karnfield is amazing!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Guided Meditations for Difficult Times the most enjoyable?

    Great meditations, not really great for the car driving experience, better for home and stillness, but still his words are so inspiring.

    "Wonderful guided meditation and discussion"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Guided Meditations for Difficult Times to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Guided Meditations for Difficult Times?

    Kornfield is very wise and calm, with an unsusally soothing voice.


    Have you listened to any of Jack Kornfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, they are all good.
