Publisher Comments:

Meditation is a doorway to freedom-a doorway that is open to anyone, at any time. Meditation for Beginners introduces you to this ancient art, and shows you, step-by-step, how it can help you feel truly alive and connected with the treasure each moment brings. In this complete video beginners' course, Jack Kornfield introduces you to the insight practice of meditation. Buddhist monks draw from this same tradition; anyone can use its principles to cultivate a profound inner calm and awaken to the truth behind the power of their presence. Four easy-to-learn meditations cover postures and breathing, beginner's mind, awareness practices, lovingkindness, and much more. Join this respected teacher and learn the time-honored secrets of mindfulness and inner freedom on Meditation for Beginners.

Afflatus, November 5, 2010 (view all comments by Afflatus)
A retreat in a box! Jack come across as a compassionate teacher in these sessions in front of an audience. He has such a clear explanation of meditation interspersed with practice on the first disk. The second disk is similar but covers the four noble truths. He gives real, practical examples without religious jargon. From the LA Times; "More and more, we're teaching meditation not as a religious activity but as a support for living a wise and healthy and compassionate inner life," Kornfield said recently. "A number of the people I teach don't consider themselves Buddhists, which is absolutely fine with me. It's much better to become a Buddha than a Buddhist." The title of the May 29, 2010 article by Kate Linthicum says a lot, "Teacher who helped shape American Buddhism is still on a quest." While having heard of him, I have not read his books but look forward to them. Up till now, I have read and listened to Jon Kabat-Zinn who I also recommend.
