Best meditation audio I've found so far

Simple 20 minute meditation. I have several meditation audios, but this is the one I use. I'm amazed how difficult it is to quiet my mind. Once I do, I feel much more focused and alert. Sharon Salzberg has a good voice for this type of audio, and she has the right balance of explaining what to do, and then being quiet to so you can practice.

Perfect for beginners like me

A good recording for beginning meditators. Ms. Salzerg's voice is soothing. It's a guided meditation without annoying music.

very Very VERY Simplistic & Basic

I suppose it's not the Worse 20 Minute Meditation guide I've ever listened to ... but it's far Far FAR from the best.
