Don't confuse this in depth correspondence course with the other insight meditation offerings. This is great, has 24 CDs, 12 guided meditations and an IMS designated meditation instructor to answer your questions. Just hearing Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg is worth the price of the set.

This is a very good meditation study. Sharon Salzberg and Joseph Goldstein are both quite wonderful. It is a very nice way to become acquainted with a meditation practice.

An excellent overview of Insight (or 'Vipassana') meditation. I've loved this one for many years now.

I've listened to it repeatedly and I gleen something new from it each time I listen. The stories related in it stick with me to remind me about how our conduct in daily life can be easier, more loving, more giving and more compassionate. And how we can create this by related differently to our thoughts, our emotions and others in life.

It's also just a pleasure to listen to. I recommend it whole-heartedly.
