Publisher's Summary

A Classical Training Program in Mindfulness Meditation
The profound techniques of Vipassana (or insight meditation) are all rooted in the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's practice-oriented teaching on the four foundations of mindfulness. With Mindfulness, Joseph Goldstein brings you a series of core teachings and guided practices for "looking directly at the nature of the mind and body, at how suffering is created, and how we can awaken and be free."
Designed to complement his book of the same title, as a stand-alone tool for daily practice, or for anyone wanting to go deeper in their experience of mindfulness, these profound meditations include:

Mindfulness of the Elements—a practice for relating to your body not through concepts but as a constantly changing energy field
Mindfulness of Feelings—discover how the experience of our sense perceptions conditions our reactions in the mind and our actions in the world
Mindfulness of Mind—how we recognize skillful and unskillful states of mind and thought
Big Sky Mind—an expansive practice for resting in a mind that is spacious enough to hold all of our experience in the light of pure awareness
"The term 'mindfulness' may seem to indicate something quite ordinary and prosaic," explains Goldstein, "but the quality of mind it refers to has tremendous transformative power in our lives." With Mindfulness, now you have a set of time-tested tools for opening to the ultimate goal of practice: liberation.

Not disappointed

This is broken up into 5-6 meditations, guided and easy to follow. They reinforce the basic teachings of mindfulness. I will be repeat listening to this one.

Life changing

Life changing : I could not describe it any other way . I am aware it sounds cliched. But the gradual and gentle introduction to the four foundations of mindfulness , has such a profound effect on your mind to be almost addictive . I cycle through these guided practice sessions, almost every day.
The voice of Goldstein and the serenity of the delivery and above all the simple but profound content make this truly a treasure.

Well delivered, well paced. Well recorded. Quality.

In particular I'm loving the 6th practice of big sky mind - no boundaries, just sounds, sensations, thoughts and images coming and going in spaciousness. :-)
