Short and sweet

Probably the most basic of introductions to Buddhism, mindfulness, and meditation. Enjoyable at any level and oh so soothing.

My favorite Sounds True meditation so far

I have followed along with many Sounds True meditation audio guides and this is my favorite by far. Some of these audio guides sound like they were recorded during a meditation retreat so you can hear various noises in the background, which is distracting to me. However, this guided meditation is free of any extraneous sounds outside of Dr. Kornfield's calming voice. I also like this guided meditation because it can be used by someone trying meditation for the first time, or someone with more experience. I tend to like all of Jack Kornfield's or Tara Brach's guided meditations, but this is the one I keep coming back to, especially if it's been a while since I've meditated. Thank you.

Short but powerfull

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I listen to this guided medication and it is so powerfull that for the first three times I fell asleep listening to it. I managed to be relax and aware on the forth time and after awhile it felt like my body was weighless, just pure relaxation. Very nice experience produced by this audiobook.
