"The techniques are fast, simple, and powerful." (The New York Times)
"You will be more deeply connected to life if you buy this book. It's an invaluable gift for your soul." (Jack Canfield)
Learning in a short time how to use the rest even better is worthwhile. I've learned meditation from many teachers, and think his simple techniques are in agreement with what really works. Much of the ceremony and fuss around meditation is meant to keep the thoughts occupied or distracted enough that you actually can meditate.. this just shows you how to meditate wherever you may be, without long preambles. It isn't new-agey and isn't in that style. Most new-agey "meditations" would be better termed "cheering visualizations" which can relax and benefit a person, but doesn't immediately give your mind from your own core the chance to meditate and create out of itself. He's teaching, simply, MEDITATION.
Low on practical exercises, high on really boring talk, and a very annoying UK (I believe) accent make this painful to listen to. When something is titled, "Meditation in a NY Minute," you expect a series of one-minute meditations, not endless self-important babble about how the author was "chosen" to teach.
Great for busy people, who want to gracefully, add meditation, and it’s benefits, into their life. The methods are innovative, and they work.
‘Meditation in a New York Minute’ is filled with simple ways to reach a calm, lucid state in the midst of a hectic workday. The author shows exactly how to use little chunks of time during daily activities, to reach an hour a day. A fascinating concept.
I was looking for inspiration to get back on my meditation schedule. After listening to the audio sample, I knew there was enough value to warrant a purchase. I’m thrilled, as it’s even better than I’d imagined.
It seems like many audible listeners gave ‘Meditation in a New York Minute’ a high rating, but no one has taken a moment to write a positive review yet, which this deserves. Listen to the sample, and see for yourself.
I really like Marks paperback version but this sounds like its incomplete. One minute Mark is taking I'd through a Visualization and then bam! We hope you enjoy this audible....
I thought we would get "The putting it all together" chapter and a conclusion.
Anyway.. Content and ideas good... Finished product poor.
