Really enjoyable and not too 'out there'

I've had an interest in meditation and buddhism for a while but have been put off many programmes because they seem at bit too woo woo.

I wanted something practical, instructional, yet warm and enjoyable. Jack Kornfield pulls off all 3 here.

His voice is great - and I was able to get into the meditations really easily.

excellent introduction

I have been struggling to find any inner peace after a very hurtful business experience. living with daily fear and anxiety I needed to find a way to change my perspective on life and find a new way forwards. This audiobook and its author has been more than a little helpful since the author personally guides you through a series of meditations after explaining the basic Buddhist teaching behind the practice. You don't need to be Buddhist or even meditative to find this book helpful as it takes you simply and lovingly through simple exercises that can help everyone. It all makes sense and after only a few hours working through these meditation exercises I feel calm and renewed. Meditation will become a regular practice for me starting by using these guided sessions daily before working on my own. I feel supported and upheld in the loving kindness that is shown in such an everyday down to earth way through this volume. I would certainly recommend it!
