Here are 4 authentic meditations from Plum Village, the celebrated Zen sanctuary and peace center founded by Thich Nhat Hanh in southern France. Hanh is a meditation master who Thomas Merton has described as "the Zen monk who sees beyond life and death." These inspiring guided meditations teach conscious breathing for calming the mind and cultivating joy, body appreciation and attunement practice, and how to transform your anger into seeds of kindness.

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.

Be aware of what you're getting!

The description calls these 'guided meditations', I wouldn't. They are great meditations, but they are not guided. It's a short talk (a few minutes) and then a long section of gong (the first one is forty minutes, the others are shorter).
If it's what you want, it's great, but if you want something really guided try one of the several 'How to Meditate' options. (I'm partial to Pema Chodron, but that's just my opinion.)

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.

mediocre meditation

guided meditations for a western audience/ not much to do with Buddha or mindlessness but very profitable to the 'Buddhists' no doubt
