Publisher's Summary

Most people who have difficulty setting up a meditation practice cite lack of time as the main hindrance. But with this audiobook, there's no excuse! Guided Meditations for Busy People is designed with the time-pressured in mind and offers nine short meditations from three minutes to nine minutes in length. Most are eight minutes long.

These short "sits" are ideal for the person who needs to meditate but who feels they don't have the time. Each meditation introduces a principle that can be brought into daily life as a mindfulness practice.

Led by Bodhipaksa from the popular Wildmind meditation teaching resource and Internet site, these Buddhist meditations will help you to develop greater appreciation for every moment of your life.

    "relax or refresh"

    These short meditations are helpful as a relaxation exercise at the end of the day or as an energizing break before tackling a new task. Bodhipaksa's voice is a bit quirky, but soothing when you get used to it. The pauses between instructions are long enough that he's not interfering with your thoughts, but short enough that your mind doesn't wander off topic.

    "Quick and Helpful"

    These meditations are quick and help build a foundation of good techniques. These have helped me in working through my issues with panic attack disorder as well as anxiety. They are by no means a replacement to treatment for me but have given me a guided means of practicing relaxing my mind and body. Bodhipaksa's narration is smooth and easy and not distracting in any way. For anyone dealing with stress or anxiety or are just looking for a way to relax a little more, give it a try. Each meditation session lasts about 8-10 minutes and you can go for longer if you'd like.

    "Short, and very effective."

    There are about 8 or 9 different guided meditations, one in each chapter, making it very easy to switch between them. These guided meditations are short, about ten minutes each and are an ideal listen during your day, when you are waiting in lines or while driving - just don't follow the narrator advice to close your eyes and you'll be fine ;)

    I'm listening to this book almost every day and I can already notice the difference in my mood.

    "The ultimate in relaxation..."

    I mainly play this audiobook when I go to sleep each night. So soothing and relaxing. The voice of the narrator is my absolute favorite! Just try the sample and you will be hooked.

    "Soothing..."

    Soothing, reassuring relaxation for busy people, during a time of high stress and high speed internet. A calming space for us.
