Meditation for Beginners
by Jack Kornfield

It’s Straightforward to Begin Meditating. Learn Now With This Integrated Learning CD.

Have you ever thought about trying meditation, but didn’t know how to get started? With Meditation for Beginners, trusted teacher Jack Kornfield shows you how simple it is to start – and stick with - a daily meditation practice.

“Insight” or vipassana meditation is the time-honored skill of calming the spirit and clearing the mind for higher understanding. Now, in this complete course created especially for beginners, renowned teacher Jack Kornfield offers a straightforward, step-by step method for bringing meditation into your life.

Using the six guided meditations on the included CD, you will discover how easy it is to use your breath, physical sensations-and even difficult emotions- to create tranquility and lovingkindness in your everyday life. These simple, elegant practices are so easy to learn that you will begin enjoying the benefits of meditation immediately-while laying the foundation for a lifetime of inner discovery and awakening.

The tradition of resting in the silence of undistracted mind is thousands of years old. It is practiced by seekers in all of the world’s major spiritual traditions, as well as in hospitals and even corporate board rooms. Now, with Meditation for Beginners, acclaimed author and respected meditation teacher Jack Kornfield distills the essential teachings and guided practices that you would learn at an intensive beginner’s meditation retreat-into one concise interactive course. If you have never meditated before, you will find Meditation for Beginners a highly accessible doorway into this proven, transformative practice.

“The skill of becoming more mindful and present and compassionate is something we may learn sitting on a meditation cushion. But this capacity for awareness helps in many other ways: in computer programming, playing tennis, lovemaking, or walking by the ocean and listening to life around you. In fact meditation is really the central art in all other arts. “ -Jack Kornfield
