Publisher's Summary

Essential Insights and Guidance to Deepen Your Meditation Practice

Beneath all our bustling thoughts and the distracting dramas of the world, an ever-present stillness beckons us to our true home. "Meditation is a tool for returning to our essential nature," says Adyashanti. With Guided Meditations, this groundbreaking spiritual teacher offers four immersive audio sessions of meditations created to enrich your practice and help you become a more open, loving, and benevolent presence in the world. Join him as he presents:

  • Three foundational meditations for inner peace and stillness
  • Meditations for transforming volatile emotions and embodying the heart of compassion
  • "Evocation" practices for awakening to the divine ground of your being that is always present and available
  • The best attitude for meditation, myths about concentration and self-control, and expanding your practice into each moment

Guided Meditations is intended to be a constant companion that you return to time and again on your spiritual journey. "As we grow, our motivations for meditating evolve," says Adyashanti. "Yet we can always become wiser, more loving, and more deeply connected to who we truly are."

    Story
    "Essential listening for the Adya fan"
    Would you listen to Guided Meditations again? Why?

    Already have. This is a program you return to many times over.


    Would you recommend Guided Meditations to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. I'm sure that the warmth and pathos in his voice could calm just about anyone.


    Have you listened to any of Adyashanti’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to The End of Your World, Spontaneous Awakening, True Meditation, Resurrecting Jesus, and Falling into Grace. I have also attended two Adyashanti retreats and watched almost everything available on YouTube. Suffice to say, I'm a big Adya fan but I would consider him more of a teacher than a "guru." A big reason why I resonate with him is that he would probably prefer to be viewed that way. This is most like True Mediation but with eight guided meditations compared to only three. I'm not familiar with any overlap of this material with YouTube content. This is also much cheaper than most of the stuff on his website and you get to listen to it from the convenience of the Audible app.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Guided Meditations?

    Remembering that I can always make the choice to love and view life with a better attitude.


    Any additional comments?

    Adya is truly skilled with his guided meditations. I have had the privilege of attending his in person meditations. I might be in the minority, but the "guru's grace" easily extends to recorded versions. People unfamiliar with Adya might recognize the familiar spiritual/non-dualist tropes, but Adya can evoke the ineffable for us temporal beings like no other.

    "This audiobook finally got meditating!"

    I have tried to meditate unsuccessfully for over 20 years now : and I've always had a stone wall. After a couple of minutes The tremendous "acoustics" of the nonstop thought process my mind just obliterated but I'm trying to do.

    I have tried books on tape , classical books , meditation/ yoga classes , countless audio downloads, binaural beats, and more recently at least three different kinds of meditation applications for the phone! Yet none of them could not get me to meditate like this audiobook has! Today, I actually was able to do 90 minutes! I can't recommend this audio enough ! THANK YOU !

    "Best guided meditation"

    I've been meditating on and off for years. Yet for the last 18 months 1-2 times daily. And I love adding tools to my items to pull from. Adyashanti does an amazing job at giving me a bunch of new tools. I love the different styles here. There are medications for all types of experiences. I use this daily now. Thanks you! Adya!!!

    "Fantastic."

    I found that the meditations really deepened my practice and invoked a connection to oneself which was grounded in experience. Great experience and highly recommended.

    "Disappointed"

    Filled with grammatical errors, misspeaking issues and tense troubles. It is difficult to feel a connection when the speaker uses the same word as a describer as the word he is describing; i.e. "beauty is beautiful". A broader based vocabulary would have helped. Can't recommend.

    "Excellent Guide"
    If you could sum up Guided Meditations in three words, what would they be?

    Stillness of being


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    NA


    What does Adyashanti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can tell how much this guy has practiced, and how sincere he is in transmitting his knowledge. His voice is perfect for entering into a deeper awareness as its relaxing without putting you to sleep. There are also some gorgeous ideas in the supplemental meditations that are excellent pointers to the deeper truth of being.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The three commitments of meditation were very helpful as a reminder. I've always loved Adyashanti's descriptions of meditation, from True mediation onward. When we meditate, we are becoming more fully ourselves by letting go of the " meditator". There are so many misconceptions about meditation in popular culture and he does an excellent job of reminding us what true meditation is, and who we truly are as beings.

    Additionally I love the more abstract meditations at the end of the book about the ground of being. Some of the language he uses about the void is deeply poetic and moving


    Any additional comments?

    " Touch upon the dark face of god"

    Thanks, Adya.

    "Best Meditation Yet!!!"
    What did you like most about Guided Meditations?

    This is the best book I have read by Adyashanti.

    I love all the meditations they really help a lot. I enjoy using this book at night to help sleep so I would recommend all his work.
    I would recommend also One of Us for deeper understand from Sounds True with Mukti.


    What did you like best about this story?

    NA


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    NA


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was very relaxed during the Guided parts of the book which I enjoyed. Take your time over the theory.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic Book Would recommend A+++
