Synopsis: Mindfulness has been shown in clinical trials to be an effective way of reducing stress. It is a form of focused awareness that helps to prevent the runaway thinking that gives rise to physical and emotional hyper-arousal. The two meditations on this CD help us to develop this transformative quality of mindfulness, by means of which we practice acceptance of our present-moment experience in a non-judgmental way.
Although the meditations on this CD are Buddhist in origin, they can be practiced by people who follow any spiritual tradition or none at all.
From the Publisher: Bodhipaksa's second CD of guided meditations follows on the heels of the highly successful "Guided Meditations: For Calmness, Awareness, and Love" (ISBN 0972441409), and offers the listener even more skills for reducing stress and developing greater wellbeing.
In the body scan he invites you to reconnect with the body, relaxing each muscle deeply, and gently bringing the mind back to the present moment when it wanders. The overall effect is of gentle acceptance, relaxation, and calmness.
During the second meditation he asks you to see troubling thoughts as a friend who has landed on your doorstep. You would not turn your friend away in order to avoid the discomfort of facing a difficult experience, and in fact you would invite your friend in so that you could comfort him or her. In this way Bodhipaksa invites you back into your own life, giving you an opportunity to heal through acceptance.
Bodhipaksa does not employ any new age music, gongs, bells or other sounds associated with many meditation CDs. Instead, he uses his very calm and soothing voice to lead you through the various meditations, allowing sufficient time in silence to act on each suggestion.
