meditating is good for you.

there, I've just summarized the book in one sentence. now you don't have to bother listening to it. by the way the narrator acts like he's reading shakespeare, not a book on meditation. overall it's really a waste of time. yes meditating is good for you. thank you very much. Out out Bruce candle, life's been a walking shadow, a poor player who struts and frets his final hour upon the stage, and then it's heard no more.

Powerful insights

As a Yoga Therapy is working in a mental health facility I get to see firsthand they just regularities. By the time I was through with this book I gained a whole new level of knowledge about the human experience that we all have. This book has given me so many ideas bring in mindfulness meditation that will accommodate different levels and different backgrounds.

very interesting indeed

it is a long listen and extremely interesting and read magnificently.
but for me it was a little bit too much self back slapping and not enough practical help in teaching the listener how to meditate properly theirselves. that I think was the biggest letdown for me .

A truly excellent book.

This is a very comprehensive exposition of the way meditation aids in healing. The first part is primarily a practical description of meditation while the latter part is its application. Some may find the “clinical” section rather dull. I found the section on hospice care rather depressing and skipped some of it but, overall, this book covers all aspects of the subject and I found even the clinical parts very informative. The narrator is excellent too.
