This was a really good summary of Jon Kabat-Zinn's novel Wherever You Go There You Are. I really felt like I was given the key points of the novel, and I've learnt some important pieces of information about meditation. For instance, when meditating, your posture is actually incredibly important.
My life like everybody else's is packed full of hectic decision making chaos.
I requested this book in exchange for my honest review because I need that reminder to tune it out and be more aware of what's going on around me in the moment.
This very short book about mindfulness does just that.
This listen helped me to tune out the chaos that makes me anxious and irritable so that I can connect with the peaceful stillness that is my now.
Enjoying this book for just a few short minutes helped set the tone for the rest of my day.
I am more relaxed and aware of the significant points.
I think Jim Santor did a good job narrating so that the point could come across clearly.
I recommend this book for anyone who sometimes finds life distracting.

In this brief "cliff-notes" version of Jon Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go, There You Are, you have a whole new understanding of what it is to have mindfulness meditation. At one point I will need to listen too, or read the full book but this summary is really a great reminder to get your head back into being able to meditate or begin to understand what meditation is and for. I, myself, have never meditated. I have often thought about it, but can never seem to be able to sit that still for long. After listening to this summary, I understand that meditation isn't just about sitting still in a quiet space and not thinking about things. Jim Sartor does an excellent job with narrating. Listening to his voice adds to starting the road to your meditation.
If you need a short daily reminder of get back in a good peaceful mindset that meditation is for you, then this Summary Jon Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go, There You Are is a great addition to your audio book library.

This quick listen summarizes important key features to emphasize in your meditation practice. Some tips that stand out including posture and hand placement when meditating.
I really enjoyed this summary of Jon Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go, There You Are. I've listened to other audiobooks by JKZ but not this particular one. I thought the summary was a great shorthand version of understanding mindful meditation and the book. In fact, listening to this summary makes me more interested in purchasing the actual audiobook. Knowing that his Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief is helpful for me perhaps this audiobook will also be helpful. I've gotten a lot of mileage from the abovementioned audiobook.
I'm a work in progress of midfulness meditation and a great fan of Jon Kabat-Zinn and the work he does.
If someone is new to this, I would suggest giving it a try. Meditation isn't religion specific. Anyone can do this.
Jim Sartor did a fantastic job narrating this audiobook. He had a smooth, steady voice which was easy to listen to and enjoyable.

I thought this audio book has a lot of really good information. I found the narration a bit distracting. The voice just was hard for me to concentrate. But that is most likely a personal thing. I found the information very basic which is good for those starting out in meditation. I would recommend this to others who are struggling with keeping their minds quit. I really like the fact that the author stresses that meditation is not connected with any religion. As a Christian I find meditation a wonderful experience but have been told by others that it is not a christian thing to do WRONG!
