Meditation is a tool for discovering ourselves—our embodied presence, authentic feelings, and inspirations. For the past 25 years, Sounds True has had the privilege of recording many of today’s leading meditation teachers from diverse spiritual traditions. Sounds True Selects: The Power of Meditation I invites you to experience for yourself the countless benefits of regular meditation practice.
After an introduction by Sounds True founder and publisher Tami Simon, Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Reggie Ray discusses some of these benefits. Jack Kornfield, cofounder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center and author of The Wise Heart, follows with an answer to the question, “Why Meditate?” Then your four-part practice session begins with a lesson in “Mindful Breathing” led by Nobel Peace Prize nominee Thich Nhat Hanh; “Calming the Mind” with meditation teacher and author Sharon Salzberg; “Tonglen Meditation” with Pema Chödrön, author of When Things Fall Apart; and “The Lake Meditation” with Jon Kabat-Zinn, the man who brought mindfulness meditation into mainstream medicine.
