Publisher's Summary

"You hold in your hand a precious jewel, a treasure with the power to transform your life and to heal the world." - Joan Borysenko, from the Foreword
This audiobook, originally published in hardcover as Simple Meditation and Relaxation and then in paperback as Luminous Mind, has endorsements from Ram Dass, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Jon Kabat-Zinn, C. Norm Shealy, Dr. Elmer Green, Dr. Larry Dossey, Dan Goleman, and more - in other words a who's who of experts on mindfulness, relaxation, stress reduction, and healing.
The audiobook teaches five different meditation techniques, with nearly a dozen practices in each, making it a very comprehensive, yet easy to follow, resource. The five types of meditation are:

Concentration Meditation
Mindfulness Meditation
Reflective Meditation
Creative Meditation
Heart-Centered Meditation
This is the audiobook for the complete beginner and the long-time meditator who may be stuck or out of practice. This is an audiobook for the stressed-out mom, the father recovering from a heart attack, the sister with the high-stress job, the couple who can't seem to spend any time together, and virtually anyone else.

If you want to know what mediation is ALL about, this is it!

This book is one of the most comprehensive works on mindfulness and mediation. The authors provide a great overview of what is available to you and then engage in the practice thereof with practical examples. What I did appreciate mostly is the inclusiveness of practice, from Hinduism, Christian practices, to the Kabbalah and other sacred practices, religions and spiritual practices. All in all, an enriching experience, which I am going to draw on over and over again and come back to on an ongoing basis.
If you are not sure what this ‘meditation and mindfulness thing’ is all about or if you want to learn more, explore alternatives, or simply compare notes, this book is a great resource for you. May you find what you are looking for and in the process of reading this book, be blessed as much as I am. Thank you, a five star book for me.
