Throughout the recording, the bell is invited, and along with the group, you are invited to breathe mindfully along with them. His teachings are for novice meditators, as well as those more along the path (of enlightenment).
I recommend this tape to all who desire to learn more about living mindfully.
What I found was an experience that further cemented my interest in Buddhism. Thich Nhat Hanh's lessons on this CD begin with the essentials of Buddhist practice (breathing in meditation) to ruminations on the seeds of suffering, the experiences of life and death in the human body, and the interconnectedness of all things.
All in all, it's not a bad overview to various aspects and ideas expounded by Buddhist teachers, and Thich Nhat Hanh's voice is smooth, melodic, and compassionate. It's easy to understand why he has become such a prolific teacher, when his ideas come naturally despite English being his second language.
The CD can drag in parts (especially towards the end of Disc 1), but all in all it's charming, insightful, at times funny and at times moving, and I couldn't recommend it higher. I've listened to it dozens of times, and I'll listen dozens more. If you are interested in listening to a teacher of Buddhism yourself, and are perhaps unable to find one in your area (like me) this is a great, affordable opportunity.
