Publisher's Summary

In need of inner calm? Want to feel more at peace with yourself and others? Ideal for beginners to meditation, this audiobook will guide you through the most fundamental Buddhist meditation practices. This is a practical and yet inspiring guide to working with your mind in order to developing inner and outer harmony. There's no new-age music or nature sounds on this audiobook, which takes a solidly traditional approach to the teaching of these ancient techniques - just Bodhipaksa's gentle voice guiding you as you learn to work creatively with your own mind.
This title teaches three key practices. The Mindfulness of Breathing will help you to develop more calmness and peace of mind through paying attention to the breath; the Development of Loving-kindness will help you to develop a more positive attitude to yourself and others; and the practice of Walking Meditation is a powerful method of bringing awareness into daily life.

Wonderful

A great book to get the feel of meditation for the first time. I have tried to meditate on my own and with this book it has helped me breakthrough and move in a positive direction.

Best Guided Meditation I've Heard

The actual guided meditation on this book is wonderful - the program is well thought out and very effective. The narrator's voice works well with the material.

I've used this program before bed and on plane trips, and it's perfect for relaxing in either setting.

Heavily guided

I really like Bodhipaksa's voice; its pace and tone is ideal for a meditation CD. However, I find the CD is too heavy on the guided part. Not a minute goes past before you are given another instruction. Feel the meditation experience would be enhanced for the listener if more time was allowed between new ideas. It is unrealistic to expect the listener to keep pausing CD whilst attempting to create a feeling of calmness.

Velvet voice but talks too much

Would you try another book written by Bodhipaksa or narrated by Bodhipaksa?

The voice is velvet an smooth.Very calm.But he talks to much an it ruins the whole meditation.pity.Needs more pauses.

Would you ever listen to anything by Bodhipaksa again?

If he pauses more

How could the performance have been better?

Voice is perfect tone but less words needed an more pauses

What character would you cut from Guided Meditations?
