You'll learn The Body Scan Meditation, a powerful way to become deeply relaxed by moving your mind throughout your body to soothe and ease your muscles. Then there's The Mindfulness Meditation, a technique to enrich perception and gain direct insights into the inner workings of your mind. Finally, you'll discover The Walking Meditation, an ancient method particularly useful for people who find it difficult to sit still while meditating, or who have trouble maintaining concentration.

Provides a good background on the basic methods although I found the readers very noticeable in breaths between sentences off putting. As a result was unable to relax.
"Goleman's contribution = 5 stars..."
... but it is evident that this is supplemental audio to a book that contains the actual content. With respect to its usefulness as a meditation coach the recording format leaves a bit to be desired. There are 4 (I think) meditations and a brief intro, but the recording isn't divided up that way. This makes it difficult to locate the one you want. I re-recorded it just to divide it up logically. That said... it's worth 7 bucks.
Better than anything on you tube, these are great for daily practice. my favorite is the Body Scan.
Informative but short on content. Perhaps more useful if more examples were included. A medical analysis would've added to the depth of material.
