Genuinely helpful!

Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners such an amazing guidebook. This book all of the information very easy to understand. The beginning is biographical about Andy Puddicombe, and his gaining the knowledge and the benefits of Meditation and Mindfulness. I found this quite interesting. The book is written at a pace which makes it easy to understand and keeps you reading more.

Suits best for beginners!

Stress is as much a physical reaction as an emotional one. It is often stored in the body, therefore, we sometimes feel knots in our stomach or stiffness in our necks. Body scan meditation releases tension from all body parts through progressive relaxation. When the body is light and stress-free, the mind automatically becomes happy and free.

A work with lots of experience

In a sea of books, Instagram posts, and constant chatter Michael Yates s message is clear and direct and a grounding way to start the day. It's easy to flip to a page. Each day is a clear teaching. No fuss. No frills. Simple and direct. My days are so busy and this is exactly what my soul needs. The meditations are also easy to follow, clear, and impactful.

Fantastic, but audio version is very, very abridge

I'm a WASP born and raised in the United States and a very long term meditator who has mostly practiced inside Hindu and Theravadin traditions. I've seen the Dalai Lama speak twice, listen some of his books, and watched a few of his videos, so I'm not entirely unfamiliar with his work, but still I'm not a follower of his branch of Buddhism.

One of the best books on meditation

Few people have explained the process of meditation as detailed and from a practical acceptance of the difficulties in quieting the mind. Most people who talk about meditation just explain the logistics of meditation such as when, where and for how long to meditate. Rather than lecturing about the need to stop the wandering mind, the author breaks down the dynamics of the wandering mind.

Great purchase for me of this year.

Easy to listen and effective book. I really liked the time based approach and clear language. I feel like I can meditate now...and it was hard for me to focus before.

A Lovely Book!!!

A great starting point for anyone looking to integrate meditation into their lives. Taking mindful approaches to anxiety is consistently the only technique that has worked for me. Through the strategies in this book, I have been relieved of plenty of suffering and pain.

One of my favorite listen!!

These type of books and other versions of this that I have listen have a lot of messy citations. I like those versions when looking at the book from a historical perspective, but I think they get in the way of casual study of the work.

Excellent meditations for any man

This book has been used for centuries as a guide for living well and bravely in the face of human contingency and the vicissitudes of earthy life. The translation is a pleasure to read. I can't recommend it enough. and I got this for my husband, but he didn't seem interested, so I started listen it. It was so good, I started using it during my morning meditation. Now it is my go-to. So suitable for both genders - just a great meditation book.

Perfect for therapists!

I'm a fan of self help books that aren't meant to be consumed all at once and can be devoured in small little chunks. Meditation for Relaxation is just that, it's filled with 60 different meditations that range in length from 5 or 10 or 15 minutes to complete. You can make it as little or as long as you need it to be and is perfect for those who don't have a lot of free time to devote to a new practice.

Beautiful relaxing book

Thirty relaxation meditations based on the elements of water, air, earth and fire promote relaxation through the power of suggestion. I begin to breathe deeply before I'm even halfway through most of these!

He speaks to my heart

The author suggests that to become enlightened, we need to focus on inspired texts and passages. You can select passages within your own religious tradition, learn from traditions different than your own, or choose something non religious if that is your fancy.

Beautiful renditions

The arrangement of "It Is Well" alone is worth the money spent in my opinion. These arrangements are perfect for playing as offertories or preludes or at home just for enjoyment. I would classify them as intermediate. They are easy enough to perfect with just a little practice, but do not sound too simple

For anyone who needs help with stress

My two girls 3 and 6 love these books. But my eldest requests it nightly. After her friend at school lost her Mother, her already anxious personality was in over drive. Poor thing was terrified. But after meditating nightly with these books she could release her fears and sleep. She’s not as charged at all and says often that these meditations calm her.

I highly recommend this to anyone

I bought this meditation cd for friend who was stressed out on final exams. She reports that it helped her to release the stress and was able to relax and face the exams with ease. I was suffering from PTSD and had tried almost everything to get some peace and sleep at night. This guided meditation has changed my life. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Kind, interesting, useful, uncomplicated

I find this book extremely easy to pick up at night, knowing that I can read two quick pages (or less) and continue a meditation practice. It acts as both guide and motivator, and presents you a myriad of options while keeping things extremely uncomplicated and accessible due to its bite-size format and straightforward, jargon-less voice. (Although I listen the book almost cover to cover the first time I sat down with it)

Eye opening

meditations, and more. It is organized by month and day for each meditation, but listen can really start anywhere and read more than one meditation per day. While billed as meditations in just 5 minutes per day, the author packs a big punch in every entry. Very nice layout. Enjoyable and instructive

Sometimes it's the little mental things that can be holding you back or tripping you up and this slim little volume of meditations is great for anyone.

Keep It Simple" A Small But Powerful Book

The daily passages are short and easy to do. The only thing that I don't care for is that the book references mostly "My higher power" instead of "God". And other places they state "God". I know they used "My higher power" since not all people believe in God, but the inconsistency of using it sometimes and sometimes not then rules out their initial purpose of using it.
