not for beginners

This book consists of two meditations from Plum Village, Thich Nhat Hanh's centre in France. The first has an introduction from TNH and then consists mainly of a bell ringing to help keep you mindful. The second is led by Sister Jina and consists of three meditations to help with developing mindfulness and compassion. If that is what you are looking for then they are great.
If, hoever, you are a beginner and would like an introduction to TNH, then can I recommend 'The Art of Mindful Living' (also available on audible) instead, as that is a better introduction to TNH.

Beautifully recorded, incredibly blissful

I agree with the previous reviews that some experience in meditation is helpful, yet with time and practice concentrating on your breathing between the bells of Plum Village becomes effortless... Thich's introduction in itself, though short, is already worth the entire audiobook...

The second part of the audio, recorded by Sister Jina, is amazing!!! Her voice is so sweet that I would listen to her forever... Her proposed exercises are very easy to follow and very calming and soothing.

That was certainly one of my greatest acquisitions in! Thank you, Audible! Please continue to publish more of these...

Good for relaxing, a realistic meditation guide

What made the experience of listening to Plum Village Meditations the most enjoyable?

Thich Nhat Hahn

If you’ve listened to books by Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Jina van Hengel before, how does this one compare?

This is less guided than the others

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

This promotes a sense of calm and relaxation.

Any additional comments?

Thich Nhat Hahn is a great buy if you want to meditate and relax. This particular session is predominantly Thich Nhat Hahn ringing a bell, it makes it more realistic way to actually meditate because there is less interruption or gimmicky sounds. It is it's simplicity that makes is one of the better meditation audios that I have used.
