If you could sum up Mindfulness Meditation in three words, what would they be?
Compassionate, wise, heartful
What did you like best about this story?
Tara Brach has obviously dealt with both meditation and with people who have need of her counseling. The meditations are heartfull as well as mindfull.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This is a bit silly, as this is not a story but a set of guided meditations, which need someone to read them, which Ms. Brach does well.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The meditations are a comfort and a reminder that mindfulness can change most experiences.
Any additional comments?
For those who found that they couldn't chose a specific meditation, they weren't using the Audible app. The music app on Apple iOS devices is pretty crappy because it doesn't show chapters. The iPod Nano is fine as is iTunes on a computer, but iPhones/Pods/Pads/Touches are lousy that way.
The Audible app not only lets you navigate to specific chapters but place "bookmarks" at any location. As the audiobook separates the different meditations into chapters, this works well. Get the app. I also use the app on my Nexus 5 phone and it works well for that, too.

Tara Brach addresses every kind of feeling one might have and with her soothing voice and understanding way of speaking enables the listener to let go of any longstanding tension one might have in any part of the body. You are left with a spacious feeling of relaxation.
