A Great Guide

Very practical and smart. Simple step by step system presents a very logical process, yet the author only says what is necessary to lead one to deep and profound levels of understanding. not much fluff and vibey language. I'll listen to it several times.

Brilliant mediation guide!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been looking for comprehensive guide to meditation for years and know that found one now. By far the best book on meditation you can find. I've bought several hard copies of the book to be able to give as a gift.
