With Meditation, expert teacher Shinzen Young presents a clear, easy-to-follow program to help you get your start in this transformative practice. Beginning with a brief overview of the proven physical and emotional health benefits of meditation, Shinzen provides precise guidance in specific practices that can be used by anyone—no matter what your background or belief system—to radically improve how you think, feel, work, and connect with others.

Love him - He was my Vipassana teacher in 1986 or 7 for hundreds of hours in connection with my job at that time.

Shinzen Young is my favorite cd-&-mp3 meditation guide. Sounds True offers this and another set of introductory guided Buddhist meditation sessions. Many will appreciate that his presentations are non-denominational. His voice is both cheerful and calming.
