Summary

If meditation was available in capsule form, it would be the biggest selling drug of all time. It has been scientifically proven to deliver highly effective stress relief, boost our immune systems and dramatically slow the aging process. It has also been shown to make us much happier and more effective thinkers. In this partner recording to Hurry Up and Meditate, David Michie takes the novice meditator by the hand, and provides four guided Buddhist meditations to help you experience for yourself the benefits of these time-honoured and powerful techniques.

Getting started:

  • Explaining the best physical and psychological posture (5 mins)
  • Introducing two useful tools for your meditations (5 mins)
  • Meditation 1 - Body scanning and relaxation (20 mins)
  • Be fully present in your body, here and now
  • Meditation 2 - Breathing meditation: counting technique (10 mins)
  • Combat stress and cultivate inner peace through the breath
  • Meditation 3 - Visualisation technique: the cocoon (15 mins)
  • Attracting happiness, radiance and contentment through this transformational practice
  • Meditation 4 - Analytical meditation: cultivating gratitude (15 mins)
  • Enhance appreciation of your life just as it is

David Michie is the best-selling author of Buddhism for Busy People, Hurry Up and Meditate and Enlightenment to Go.

Not as good as Dalai Lama’s cat

Ordered this as really enjoyed meditations at end of Dalai Lama’s cat - also by David Michie. Narrator of this is too fast - too much information all at once and long pauses. Also found repeated info found in later book. Have exchanged this item.

Not what I expected

What did you like best about Hurry Up and Meditate: Guided Meditations? What did you like least?

I liked that I could hear a little more about the power of meditation but I was frustrated that the bulk of the book was exactly that. I was looking for some guided meditations but only a small part of the audio is dedicated to that.
