A Step-by-Step Introduction to Meditation

Scientific studies show that meditation can reliably increase your mental clarity, reduce fatigue, and improve physical health. And the best part? It's not as hard as you may think to start meditating.

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.

Truly Excellent Review by Jay

Rating

I have had a meditation practice since 1981 and I am still interested in new perspectives from teachers.
I can unconditionally recommend this as both
*a clear, concise introduction for beginners, one of the best I've heard, and
*a presentation of an understanding of what meditation is and does that is useful even for experienced practitioners, in my own case clarifying my own understanding and giving me ideas on improving my practice.

Love him - He was my Vipassana teacher in 1986 or 7 for hundreds of hours in connection with my job at that time. (Posted on April 9, 2013)

Review for Meditation Review by H. Talat Halman

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. (Posted on April 6, 2013)

Review for Meditation Review by Keith P

Rating

What a disappointment. I can see why this has been discounted to $2.49. I can't even describe how bad the content is. As for the narration, I'll just say Shinzen Young's voice is more of a distraction than a help in achieving any level of meditation, and his delivery is simply awful.

I don't get the sense that he is teaching from any level of actual realization, but is simply giving out instructions from a manual that he has read.

Zero stars - don't waste your money. Don't even take it as a free gift if offered, seriously. Sorry to have to come across as harsh, but IT IS THAT BAD. (Posted on February 20, 2013)
