Joan Borysenko is a wise, highly qualified teacher of meditation and this audiobook contains a lot of information that actually goes beyond the basics. Useful to anyone whether a beginner or even a more experienced meditator, The Beginner's Guide to Meditation is a great way to learn about meditation and various techniques of going about it, in a easy paced, well-explained format.

A recording of an excellent workshop that gives a concise overview of types of meditation, how to decide what is best for you, and a guided meditation. Very helpful. I'm going to listen to it again.

This isn't actually a book; it's a series of live lectures, and it's wonderful! Joan is funny and likeable and very human. She goes over the history and medical research on meditation (she's a psych PhD, I think) without being dry and pedantic. I left this in the car CD player, and even my husband got swept up listening to it.

A great lecture! The speaker goes over three types of meditation, with a guided meditation at the end of the two hour lecture. Very informative, and the speaker has a soothing, calm voice, and she uses humor to speak about the topic which is fun and keeps the listener interested.
