Excellent

The first time I listened to this was on a busy commuter train and I felt an instant calm. although I had heard of mindfulness I didn't know much about it. yet as his words unfolded I knew this would be important for me. It has taken me a couple of years to start regular practise but I have listened to this many times in that time. It started me on a journey which I suspect will make the rest of my life a nicer place to be.

Great contemplative book

This book is great on many levels. Whilst it is interesting on an information level the content becomes overwhelmingly relevant as you continue through the book. A definite good read/listen!

Wonderfully guided by the speaker.

I strongly recommend this practice. I can honestly say I can think with more clarity and have been learning how to let go moment by moment. I feel happier, inner peace and live a well balanced life.

Even when you are at work or somewhere that you begin to fill stressed and don't fill you have the time, they explain that it can be done in 10 minutes. Meditation helps you reconnect with your inner self it also helps you find peace. I am a mother of six children and now learning about meditation I feel that this will benefit me greatly.

10 Guided Meditations for Beginners

This book changed things for me dramatically - I lead a busy and often stressful life and this helped me learn how to step away from that and not get bogged down in daily stress and over thinking things but take some time to just appreciate the moment and bring some calm and non judgemental thinking to my day.

Mind altering, world changing

I've listened over and over and over to this wonderful audiobook. Soulful voice soothes and heals while you sit - or lie - and you can do the meditations sitting or lying down. I'm not saying this is the panacea for all known human woes. But it offers the chance to see the world through a different lens. A lens that needs constant cleaning. Excellent.

Well worth the money!

It is very easy to listen to, explaining the history and practice of mindfulness in every day life. The first half is a talk about mindfulness, the second half is a series of simple mindfulness exercises. Well worth the money!

Great book for Beginners

have always wondered how people meditate and what it involved. I was more than happy to read the book and did learn a lot. I am now able to use the tool of meditation to help me during the day. As a beginner myself I thought I was doing something wrong because I could not clear my head. The book does get into that and explains why. It is a great resource and is written very well. I never would have thought you could learn to meditate by reading a book. I just figured you would need someone to coach and guide you in person. The book has been my coach.

Best one

All though it can seem complicated and unneeded this book and meditation is quite helpful. It helps to relax and clear your mind of a stressful atmosphere. I did enjoy each explanation of the different types of meditation. Now for a beginner you may have to re-read a section a few times before understanding what you are reading. For and advanced or intermediate yoga or meditation fanatic (like myself) it will be much easier to understand what is being said.
