This set is an excellent introduction to meditation. The four meditations can be practiced at any level of intensity the listener chooses. Zinn encourages the listener to be flexible to make the meditations restful and relaxing. He has a gentle, quiet style, guiding the listener through each meditation to focus attention and increase mindfulness. He provides clear directions and offers suggestions throughout each aspect of the program. His encouragement and observations will be particularly useful for beginners, and this set of four provides a core of meditations that can be used in various orders and intensities.
