5.0 out of 5 stars Meditation definitely worth buying. 8 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I now own about 50 meditation cds, and I must say that Bodhipaksa is by far the best.Outstanding.He has an incredibly kind,quiet and calming low voice with a slight Scottish accent,and every single one of his cds deeply relaxes me and gets me to sleep before I'm usually even a third of the way through. He gently talks you through relaxing every part of your body, whilst leaving perfectly lengthed silences in which you have time to absorb what he has just said without feeling bored.He also does a lot of healing talk and self-confidence building talk and feeling compassion and love for others talk, which I find good reminders for a peaceful life.It is a bit like having a best friend right next to you gently calming you down after a crisis.His cds generally last around an hour, some have 2 or 3 parts of about 30 minutes each, so if you want to do just one of them you can miss the others and click straight to that one.They are all so encouraging and respectful and relax me deeply every single time. The effects also increase every time you do it,and in between sessions I feel the real positive difference in my everyday life.I want to buy lots of all Bodhipaksa's cds so that I never lose them or they get worn out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Really relaxing 21 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After doing the eight week mindfulness course last year, I was already very familiar with the body scan. But I was already a huge fan of Bodhipaska's really gentle, compassionate voice as I had two of his meditation CDs, so I had to buy this after coming across it in a friend's house. It really does help to reduce stress. When your mind is clogged with troubles, it really is great to lie down, switch off, shut out all distractions, and turn on this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch material, very effective (review by meditation instructor) 22 Mar 2007
By Patrick D. Goonan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a personal development coach who was a teaching fellow in physiology and a research chemist. I also have a background in psychology and meditation and work with stress management and biofeedback in my practice. I've studied meditation for years, have reviewed a lot of material in this area and I also give workshops on meditation in the SF Bay Area. As such, I think I'm a good person to judge the merits of this material.

In my opinion, Bodhipaksa does the best job of presenting the body scan as a means to relax of anyone out there thay I know of. His voice is calm, soothing and comes from a relaxed place. This meditation also is detailed enough to bring someone into a very relaxed place and overall tone of the audio is encouraging.

The rest of the tape is just as good and if I were going to recommend two practices for stress reduction purposes, these would be what I include on a CD. There are no gimmicks here, just good solid material delivered in the most high quality manner. While Bodhipaksa doesn't use music, he doesn't need to induce a relaxed state and his voice is pleasant.

If you are under stress, this CD is definitely a good place to start. It is also a very nice introduction to meditation for people who haven't done any work in this area and want a simple, effective practice. The other CDs I've reviewed by this author are just as good.

You can see even more meditation and stress management resources on my listmania lists, which you can reach through my profile. Another more Western approach and a comprehensive program is FULL CATASTROPHE LIVING. I also recommend the book WHY ZEBRAS DON'T GET ULCERS or THE END OF STRESS AS WE KNOW IT. You can think of the second book as a simplification of the concepts in the first and it is even endored by the author of the first book. WHY ZEBRAS DON'T GET ULCERS is wonderful, but it's a fairly technical read, the other book is geared more toward the general population, but the presentation isn't as brilliant as Sapolosky (the author of the first book and an authority in his field).

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing, Focusing, Relaxing 31 Jan 2006
By Sophia K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bodhipaksa's soothing voice with a slight Scottish bur is marvelous to listen to and helps with the acceptance of the meditative journey that he takes his listeners on.

Extremely effective, the meditations are an extended and deepened experience of the breathing, focusing, and acceptance principles I have also experienced on his CD "Meditations for Busy People."

An outstanding addition to my current meditation practice, excellent for bring me calming, focusing, and acceptance. Takes me to a place where I feel my life is one where I see the world as full of plenty, where I feel gratitude for the wonders of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Life & Practice 9 Dec 2004
By Frobertimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is instrumental in my meditative practice. I consider it essential, as are the other materials by Bodipaksa. These meditations are quiet and focused; exactly what they should be for undistracted guidance. I doubt very much that I would have continued in my practice without these important CD's.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to meditation on the breath 27 Feb 2006
By Maia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the best cd I've ever tried for practicing "breathing" meditation. Bodhipaksa leads you through some common sense exercises focusing on the breath. His voice is gentle and soothing. This is a great cd for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful for people in suffering 6 Dec 2004
By Ola - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD has enriched my life.

I am suffering from a stress-disorder since my involvement in a

programming-company during the Internet goldrush. This and other

pesonal disasters lead me to the brink of annihilation.

This CD is one of the tools I used to heal my soul and stop

harming myself and the people around me. I am adopting a

buddhistic approach to the world but that is not a prerequisite

to practise with this CD. Many different people can benefit from

it but as many things in life nothing is for free. You should be

strong in your resolve and stay committed to practise. If you do

this you will soon come aware of the enormous benefits that will

be granted to you.

May we all avoid suffering

May we all be happy
