Discover why people like Russell Simmons Jr., Jennifer Aniston, Phil Jackson, and Brad Pitt all incorporate the life-changing practice of Buddhism into their lives. Mindfulness meditation is everywhere these days, from the therapy couch to the Google campus, from prisons to athletic events. But what are the origins of this surge in mindfulness? What kind of worldview and lifestyle went along with these ancient techniques of meditative training? And, beyond the questionable metaphysics and well-worn pop-psychology bromides, what is meditation actually for? This book explores the Buddhist ideas behind the mindfulness techniques that have seen such a groundswell of popularity. It covers meditation not just as a body of techniques for relaxation and stress relief to accessorize our busy modern lives, but as part of a radical system of self-transformation that offers the possibility of profound liberation. In this book, the Buddhist system and the ideas behind it are presented not as a religion that´s asking for your allegiance, but as a body of theory and practice geared toward fostering an inner revolution. Buddhism for Beginners will teach you : The worldview underpinning Buddhist meditation techniques, and what those techniques were actually intended for. The principles that guide a life lived genuinely, gracefully, and compassionately. What meditation is all about in the context of the Buddhist path, and how to get into the practice of working with your mind. A surprising vision of the self, the mind, and the nature of human experience that can fundamentally alter the way you look at the world. Don´t hesitate. To start on a journey that could deeply transform how you relate to your world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sonic-Script Productions.

Pain, suffering, and stress can be intolerable - but it doesn´t have to be this way. Mindfulness for Health reveals a set of simple practices that you can incorporate into daily life to relieve chronic pain, suffering and stress. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation is at least as effective as the most commonly prescribed painkillers and can be more powerful than morphine. Mindfulness can also significantly reduce the anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion and insomnia that can arise from chronic pain and illness. Mindfulness for Health is based on a unique meditation programme developed by Vidyamala Burch to help her cope with the severe pain of a spinal injury. The Breathworks Centre founded by Vidyamala - and its affiliates around the world - have helped thousands of people cope with pain, illness and stress. Its pioneering approach is praised by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, Jon Kabat Zinn, and Professor Lance McCraken of King´s College London. The eight week programme at the heart of this book takes just 10-20 minutes per day. You´ll be surprised by how quickly your suffering melts away, leaving behind a deep-seated love of life. This title includes eight guided meditations which appear throughout the audio, as well as being collected at the end. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Vidyamala Burch.
