Publisher's Summary

The reason we meditate, teaches Pema Chodron, is because something is bothering us. Yet the root of suffering and the root of happiness are one and the same: the mind.

The techniques described within sound like a great way to get settled while meditating. This audio contains some meditation/reflection, so do it at home rather than while driving. I look forward to more from Pema Chodron.
