Inspiring but not sentimentalized, makes the practice seem doable! 27 Oct. 2005
By Melusine62 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Highly recommended! I really enjoyed Sharon Salzburg's introduction to the Buddhist metta practice, Lovingkindness Meditation. This is more of an education/explanation of metta than guided meditation sessions (i.e., she does not have long, substantive, discrete meditation sessions, but works brief examples into her explanation), but I found the explanation so good that it gave me an excellent intro to metta, which I subsequently felt like I could practice on my own. In fact, I had an interesting and symbolic dream about a mentor/benefactor figure the same night I had tried out the metta practice and included him, so it seemed the meditation reached my subconscious too!

Ms. Salzburg's presentation is detailed, conversational in style, and easily accessible to Westerners without seeming like a simplification, sentimentalization, or co-opting of the original practice. Her examples and stories given along the way make metta seem doable and practical and not like some overly idealized level of compassion that is impossible for many of us to reach. The Sounds True website has sound samples of this work (and many of their other authors' CDs and cassettes), something Amazon should be doing as well. If you like this tape, you might also enjoy the meditation CD (also available on Amazon) by Bodhipaksa titled "Guided Meditations: For Developing Calmness, Awareness, and Love," which includes a complete metta practice, along with two other meditations. I found Salzberg and Bodhipaksa's works very complementary--the Bodhipaksa CD gives a complete 27-minute meditation session of metta in an incredibly soothing voice, while this tape provides the in-depth explanation that gives the practice sense and purpose.

Not Meditations, Description of Practice 20 Feb. 2009
By Frank Baird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was disappointed in this CD. I really like the author's ideas and have read her books. The title of this CD suggested to me that these were guided Lovingkindness meditations, not a spoken word description of her work and ideas.

Lovingkindness Meditation 19 July 2005
By MorningsAre Best - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Inspirational Sharon Salzberg does a beautiful gentle talk and meditation all about love and living. I noticed a difference in the way I felt about life after listening to it only one time. It is an important tool for meditation and an awakened happy life. You won't be sorry to own this one.

Terrific audiobook 29 Sept. 2008
By Edie L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent audiobook that provides a comprehensive overview of metta (lovingkindness) practice. I actually bought it thinking it was a companion audiobook of guided meditations to her book Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness, but it turns out that this is essentially an audiobook version of that book!
She has a very pleasant, calming voice, and is easy to listen to. However, it's not so soothing that she makes me fall asleep - I've listened to it in my car. I will certainly be buying more of her books and audiobooks. Highly recommended!

This Was the Worst 20 April 2014
By Morgan Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was so dull and lifeless. Having followed Jack Kornfield, Pema Chodron, and others for years on CD, I thought this would contain similar inspiration, pathos, and teaching with heart. None of these qualities exist with Ms. Salzberg's CD. I do not mean to diminish her years of study and teaching and in person she may be very different. Ironically, I felt she was merely reading her book and in a monotone, droning manner. I would not recommend this purchase.
