This is the first audiobook that I have ordered as a Premium Listener and I regard it as an excellent one. It consists of five lessons given by Jack Kornfield to a group of people during a course of five weeks. It is very well structured and tailored to the beginner?s needs. It discusses various subjects:
? Why meditate
? How to focus on your breath
? How to focus on your body sensations
? How to deal with feelings
? How to deal with thoughts
? Loving kindness-walking-eating meditation
? Jack Kornfield?s kindness and wisdom. You will soon be feeling that this teacher is talking directly to you.
? Simple and clear view of buddhist principles and psychology.
? Jack Kornfield deals with many misconceptions about meditation, the most important one to avoid being perfectionist and idealistic about it.
? Jack Kornfield explains clearly why meditation isn?t some mystical way to attain extraordinary powers but the art of being here now!
? This audiobook is full with humorous stories that help to convey the message in the most insightful and entertaining way.
It is really a great audiobook. I hope that audible.com will provide us with other Jack Kornfield?s books and my suggestion is ?After the enlightment the laundry?
? Offer yourself this audiobook, it?s an excellent gift.

I've long wanted to go to a retreat where Jack Kornfield offers his insights into meditation. This is almost as good. I return to it often, especially the fourth week's session. Great introduction to vipassana.

Although these talks are based on buddhist meditation and teaching they can be used by anyone who wants to learn how to meditate. Jack provides humour, stories and guidance on meditating and life in general. There is an introductory session followed by 5 lessons in mediation. Each expanding on the last. It's also useful as you get questions asked by people learning to mediate which often help to answer your own problems you encounter.
This is a really enjoyable listen and I would recommend it to everyone.
