This is a great tool

I lead a pretty stressful life and it was Jake's books that introduced me to meditation. I would recommend this book to anyone beginner or advanced.

Mindfulness

Deep, wonderful. By an American, who has translated Buddhism across the cultural differences, making meditation practice accessible to westerners. Go see Spirit Rock mediation center.

Thanks Rick Rubin

I started listening to the Rick Rubin podcast "Broken Record" lately. In Rick's past, which is full of wildly successful collaborations between himself and artists who are looking to have the best material they can potentially give be worked out of them....there was a glaringly obvious thing that he himself possesses: Grounding. Rick is so grounded and free in who he is and what he is capable of that its allowed him to let people sound like themselves but better. I found his one episode on meditation with Jack useful so much so that I replayed it a few times before thinking...I bet there's more.
This series of chapters will work you through selflessness, understanding forgiveness and release of your own concept of who you are so that you can be free to really be a version of yourself that you'd be limited to unless you let go of things you've always been told "you are".
I highly recommend this.

Six Essential Practices

These meditations have been extremely beneficial for my own personal practice. I find it so easy to put on these meditations and get to business. I will listen again and again.
