    Story
    "Wonderful meditations"
    If you could sum up Mindfulness Meditation in three words, what would they be?

    Compassionate, wise, heartful


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tara Brach has obviously dealt with both meditation and with people who have need of her counseling. The meditations are heartfull as well as mindfull.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is a bit silly, as this is not a story but a set of guided meditations, which need someone to read them, which Ms. Brach does well.


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

    The meditations are a comfort and a reminder that mindfulness can change most experiences.


    Any additional comments?

    For those who found that they couldn't chose a specific meditation, they weren't using the Audible app. The music app on Apple iOS devices is pretty crappy because it doesn't show chapters. The iPod Nano is fine as is iTunes on a computer, but iPhones/Pods/Pads/Touches are lousy that way.

    The Audible app not only lets you navigate to specific chapters but place "bookmarks" at any location. As the audiobook separates the different meditations into chapters, this works well. Get the app. I also use the app on my Nexus 5 phone and it works well for that, too.

    "Relaxes me"

    Tara Brach addresses every kind of feeling one might have and with her soothing voice and understanding way of speaking enables the listener to let go of any longstanding tension one might have in any part of the body. You are left with a spacious feeling of relaxation.

    "Format issues"
    Any additional comments?

    This title contains 9 separate meditations but there is no way to tell where each one starts and ends. It seems they are separated by chapter but there is no way to go directly to a specific chapter, you just skip around until you land on one. All audio books should have an easy way to skip back and forth between chapters and bookmark sections to return to.

    Story
    "Great meditations; needs an index!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mindfulness Meditation to be better than the print version?

    I have liked all of the sessions I've listened to, but I have no way of telling one subject from another or how to find them when I want a particular subject. "You can't tell one player from another without a program!" What would be so difficult about listing which is which? This is like a cookbook without an index or table of contents.


    If you’ve listened to books by Tara Brach before, how does this one compare?

    This is like a grab-bag of meditation. Tara Brach is terrific, but finding mediation on a specific subject like fear or grief is a nightmare.


    Which character – as performed by Tara Brach – was your favorite?

    The Buddha


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

    It frustrated me when it wasn't enlightening me.


    Any additional comments?

    I know you've gotten lots of other complaints about this subject. I've even gotten written index listings on other meditation tools, but they are not even accurate. Why is this so difficult!?!?

    "Great content; wish it was organized differently."

    I love Tara Brach & listen to her podcasts weekly. The meditations are beautiful, but when this is in iTunes, it's impossible to put it into playlists, which, since it's a series of guided meditations, was how I planned to listen to it. So disappointing...I will likely be returning it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a friend because it is relaxing and the author helps me reach my goal to learn to be more relaxed when mediating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mindfulness Meditation?

    The author's ability to explain what Mindfulness Mediation is.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Visualizing calmness and the feelings of the love of self and others.


    What did you learn from Mindfulness Meditation that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned many different ways to relax beyond just watching myself breathing in and out.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book for those who are new to mediation techniques.
