Fantastic short meditation sessions

Any additional comments?

Sharon Salzberg is excellent at making meditation and practicing mindfulness easy to do and understand. With her gentle guidance, I found it much easier to do daily meditation sessions. On my own, I simply cannot relax enough to pay attention to do this. There are many short sessions on this audio.

Horrible Gong Sound Between Sessions

There is a horrible gong that goes off at the end of every chapter. I like to meditate and when I do, I often drift off into a blissful sleep. The gong wakes me up every time. It’s startles me, and it’s very disconcerting. The meditation sessions are lovely. But I’m going to return this book because I absolutely hate being startled out of my relaxation.

Excellent introduction!

Sharon Salzberg is a good companion into meditation. She has clarity, warmth, and intelligence. I think she has the whole idea of compassion ingrained in her being. She is most welcoming.
