    4.5 out of 5 stars 5,476

Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Practicing Mind to be better than the print version?

yes, more authentic for author to read it, effective to be able to repeat specific sections,
Just wish there was a way to include his references (in the back of the book)

What did you like best about this story?

Analytical approach broken down Into logical steps for consistent improvement. Most encouraging for learning a new skill or subject. Excellent!

Have you listened to any of Thomas M. Sterner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

unfortunately I haven't, I would like to because I like his approach and his integrity

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes and no...It was a most interesting approach and I wanted to hear it all now. I also found myself going back to key areas several times for his suggested applications to become part of my process.

Any additional comments?

Not the typical surface suggestions, instead in depth thought and many process applications. just outstanding!
