Book Description

Jan. 1 2009
The average person has 12,000 thoughts per day--most of them a recurring handful of unwelcome distractions. On Still the Mind, master meditation teacher Bodhipaksa offers a two-CD combination of instruction and guided practice to help listeners discover an untapped source of mental clarity and inner peace. Drawing from more than 20 years of teaching, he shows us how to connect with the transformational energy and wisdom behind every single breath. Still the Mind is an essential guide for anyone looking to move beyond the chatter of a too-busy mind and build the foundation for a daily mindfulness practice. Bodhipaksa takes the mystery out of meditation, enabling listeners to settle into the deepest parts of the self--away from the stresses of habitual thinking. In a straightforward, contemporary style, he discusses: * Basics of sitting practice, from time and place to posture to proper breathing * Tips to connect with the natural flow of your own breath quickly and easily * How to combine the relaxation of the out-breath with the invigoration of the in-breath * Using breath-based mindfulness practice to unlock your powers of intuition, enhance creativity, and more. Whether you're a first-timer or a seasoned meditator, Still the Mind lets you access a serene openness in any situation through something you're already doing: breathing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the Mind by Bodhipaksa June 5 2009
By Strawberry Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a newbie into the world of meditation, this CD was recommended by a life coach. I battle anxiety and wanted something other than meds to help me. On the first CD (two CD set) the author teaches the listener basics in meditating which is something I really needed. On the second CD he leads the listener in various sessions of meditation. I love the experience and besides the guys voice is awesome. I would recommend this CD to others wanting to dive into the world of meditation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic meditation CD June 18 2009
By stn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I very much enjoyed "Still the Mind" and I think it is absolutely perfect for someone who is just starting out. I found it gave me a bit of a refresher and made counting - which had been getting tired - feel fresh again. Bodhipaksa's style is very straightforward and not new-agey which is good. I find some of that stuff annoying, but this CD doesn't try to add a lot of extra pomp and ceremony, it is straightforward and clear. Life is dramatic enough without having your meditation teacher trying to blow incense smoke up your butt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying although some repition-Bodhipaksa is the best Feb. 8 2009
By Pro Comp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have not listened to Bodhipaksa before, he is truly in a class of his own. I have a big collection of works from many other well known authors, i.e. Dyer, Chopra, Tolle etc. However, Bodhipaksa is very unique and you will realize it immediately whenever you listen to any of his works. There is an authenticity that makes you realize he is not just cranking it out for commerical gain. Also his works are very pleasant to listen to over and over again and the exercises are extremely easy to implement. He does not try to create complexity as a selling point, but rather simplifies complex thoughts for practical use.

When I was notified by Amazon of the new release I immediately pre-ordered it. Although much of the material has all been released before, some of it is new and worthwhile. The Mindfulness portion for instance is a popular "in theme" having been pushed years ago by John Cabot Zinn and then picked up by Wayne Dyer and everyone else...so not unique.

Although this CD does have a significant portion of his past materials, tracks 4 and 5 of Session 1 alone are worth the price of the CD. (The Five Hindrances).

If you dont have any of his prior materials then you should pick this up, and you will get a good working selection of Bodhipaksa. If you have any of his past materials there is a significant duplication here of a lot of it. (other than the new tracks which are superb)

Hopefully he will release more material in the future but his scarcity of content is probably better than others that just have become too commericial in producing profits on obscure themes.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed Jan. 7 2009
By love it - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you don't own any of Bodhipaksa's other CDs, this would be a good buy. However, I have all the other ones and was very disappointed when this was just a repeat. It was a waste of money for me and I was so excited when I saw what I thought was new material out there. Because he is fantastic. You can tell it was rerecorded because there are subtle differences, but it's the same stuff. I think it should be a crime to rerelease the same material and call it something else without stating that clearly. There are some additional tracks that are not meditations, more audio book, but the meditations are exactly what he has released before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for beginning meditation or Buddhism June 14 2009
By D. Wyndham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is very much like sitting and enjoying your company one on one while we discuss meditation and Buddhism. The lessons and information are easy to hear and thus, easy to absorb.
