    "Good instruction in Mindfullness"

    This book had some meditation instruction which has been very helpful. It was really simple things like sending loving kindness to a difficult person is not endorsing their behavior. I loved the writing style. It felt very clear throughout.

    Story
    "So well written and narrated"
    Would you listen to Mindful Compassion again? Why?

    Yes, definitely. It's skillfully written and very well narrated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it is such relevant knowledge for all of us.


    What does Rupert Farley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The stately pace of the narration brings home many of the many important points of the book. Rupert Farley's voice makes it quite a personal experience.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Well, I didn't laugh or cry - but I nodded a lot!


    Any additional comments?

    I just spent a longish drive in the company of "Mindful compassion" and enjoyed every minute of it. Such importance insights, so well written, so pertinent to each and every one of us. And the narrator does a marvellous job at getting the book across to the listener.

    "Highly recommended"

    If you are interested in mindfulness or the work of Tara Brach I would definitely have a listen to this excellent, accessible book. Before listening to this I struggled to fully grasp the concept of compassion but the authors set it out so clearly here, with lots of examples and exercises that it has really helped me to understand the concept, and in the process myself and my thought patterns. Learning more about compassion has definitely been life changing for me and I would highly recommend this book as part of that journey.
