    "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.

    "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
    "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.
