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.

If you could sum up The Practicing Mind in three words, what would they be?

Practical, patience building.

What did you like best about this story?

The simplicity

What did you learn from The Practicing Mind that you would use in your daily life?

It applies to many new things & experiences we have. It takes patience to learn any new skill & I was glad to hear it from this book. It inspired me to not give up on any new skill or task, but to do as much possible with a happy & easy attitude.

Any additional comments?

The writing is simple; no fluff or catch phrases. The reader (author), sounds genuine & easy to listen to. Very good choice of music, fresh & soothing. Certainly worth the credit. Thanks.

This new audio set is a very special abridgement of two of Stephen R. Covey's best-selling business books, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit, read by Dr. Covey himself. We've condensed the content of two entire books into just three hours of audio, but you'll still enjoy Dr. Covey's lessons on powerful personal change and how to incorporate his ideas into your life to fulfill your ultimate potential.
