This was a good overview of meditation and some elementary steps. Need the next volumes now. I listened to it while walking at the beach which was a great setting. Is a good one to listen to if you need to get back into meditation---the reader's voice is pleasant.
I already knew as much about meditation as the first part of this CD imparts. And the 2nd part is a walk-through of how to actually meditate. Can't do it in the car. I only listen in the car. Plus, it put me to sleep. Maybe that's the point of meditation, but I didn't think so.
