Good guided intro

one of the better (possibly best) talking guides ive used so far. doesn't have any of that back ground music nonsense that usually distracts. The voice used is well fitted to the task and is calming.
could be longer as the intro has a large amount of talking (compared to silence), though i appreciated the metaphor inserted during this. overall i recommend.

Beautiful

I really love the ocean analogy. Beautiful reset in my day, to return to the breath

IT has no ending!

If I can I will return it! While the grounding is OK it does not say when to stop. Really awkward

A ridiculous price for a underwhelming 10 minutes. Phooey,

Very disappointed in this . A waste of money. Compare to rod Watson and you find a huge difference.

Very nice intro to mindfulness

This is a wonderfully relaxing and I love how it fades to nothing. It's short but it's sweet. A nice one to have in your collection.

Simple, nice meditation guide

I recommend it for anyone who wants a simple way to start a daily meditation practice. After you get going, you may look for advanced references by Dr. Siegel or other authors.

Good but short

It's shorter than what I was expecting but I guess that's mediation as we know.

Calming

I like the metaphor of the mind being an ocean and finding that calm deep within. I do not like how it just ends.
