“Practical Mindfulness” takes an informal, accessible, irreverent approach to demystifying mindfulness and mastering meditation. It leads readers from the very basics of breath meditation to deeper practices in training our awareness – using memorable teaching concepts and structured training exercises. With modern life becoming more distracting and uncertain by the moment, mindfulness is an essential skill set to navigate that distraction–and build an adaptive, fulfilling life.
“An insightful and demystifying look at mindfulness practice.” -Kirkus Reviews
“California psychiatrist and meditation expert Greg Sazima’s audiobook exhibits the casual abandon of someone who has truly mastered the art of “giving it a rest.” He trains family medicine residents at a Stanford hospital and, with his history of surviving serious bone cancer, comes across as a complex but accessible meditation teacher who knows a lot about the pleasures and misunderstandings surrounding the ancient practice. Narrator Daniel Henning’s enjoyable performance captures the author’s likable persona and grasp of the human condition. The community theater director’s cheery performance serves as a bouncy, complementary vehicle for the author’s conversational writing. His delivery is crisp and dramatic but never upstages Sazima’s optimistic sensibilities or minimizes the pathos in the author’s personal journey.” – AudioFile
