If you want a 10 minute "breath like this" instruction, this is not for you. Its very thorough and packed full of supporting info.
The other reviews made me hesitant, but I am very pleased I chose it. The order of the tracks seems fine now. As a long time armchair Buddhist, I heard many gems here I had never before.

What made the experience of listening to Your Breathing Body, Volume 1 the most enjoyable?
There is a saying that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. That was my experience with this book. This is the teacher I have been looking for after decades of seeking. His approach to spiritual practice grounds the awareness in the body in a much more powerful way than anything else I've tried, including other breath work and body-based techniques. In comparison to this, those other practices allowed (even encouraged) me to stay suspended in my mind, never really touching reality.
I got this book and started working the practices two weeks ago. So I'm just getting started, and haven't even done them every day. But already I feel--for the first time in my life--fully grounded in my body, and no longer reactive, anxious, and fearful. I'm sure there will be ups and downs along the way, but this path is the real thing, and Reggie is a true teacher. If you're a seeker, you owe it yourself to check this book out and see if this path resonates for you.

Each chapter starts with some broad teachings, then the specifics of the practice about to be taught, followed by a guided meditation. I highly rate everything by Reggie Ray. This collection does spend more time on the theory. Very helpful. I personally slightly preferred his more recent Buddhist tantra series which has a greater proportion of time on guided oractice.

If you could sum up Your Breathing Body, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?
A brilliant book with so many little golden nuggets but only those with a sensible soul will feel what is being relayed here beyond words. There are things that words cannot describe, this book is one of those books where you'll learn beyond what words have to say. Enjoy the reading/listening.

Amazing detail and a wonderful way of seeing life.
What about Reginald A. Ray’s performance did you like?
He's simply brilliant.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
What lies beyond words.

I just love Reggie Rays way of bringing simplicity with depth on this topic. Rich in content and very practical application. I'm new to Buddhism... but engrossed with Reggie Rays approach and teachings.
