Meditation is a doorway to freedom-a doorway that is open to anyone, at any time. Meditation for Beginners introduces you to this ancient art, and shows you, step-by-step, how it can help you feel truly alive and connected with the treasure each moment brings. In this complete video beginners' course, Jack Kornfield introduces you to the "insight" practice of meditation. Buddhist monks draw from this same tradition; anyone can use its principles to cultivate a profound inner calm and awaken to the truth behind the power of their presence. Four easy-to-learn meditations cover postures and breathing, beginner's mind, awareness practices, lovingkindness, and much more. Join this respected teacher and learn the time-honored secrets of mindfulness and inner freedom on Meditation for Beginners.

I would suggest this book to anyone who is BRAND NEW to meditation or someone who is trying to introduce meditation to children.
Wonderful! Very Pleased! I know Kornfield went to India with Jon Kabat Zin, Lama Surya Das, and that whole crew back in the 70's. Well he is definetly talented.
The book is a very simple and straight-forward explanation of beginning meditation. It was interesting and a quick read. I did, however, feel cheated that there was no audio.
The book is simple to understand and covers three basic types of meditation: 1) Focusing on the Breath but in general awareness 2) Walking Meditation and 3) LovingKindness Meditation. He teaches it in stages. He doesn't have a lot of shoulds like some teachers and you don't have to be interested in buddhism.
Check to make sure the Book comes with an audio CD!!! Which is worth the price of the book alone and is almost word for word how Jack teaches each of these in live workshop. I recommend this book for ANYONE beginner or advanced who wants to learn about Meditation.
There are four meditation sessions on the video. Each is preceded by commentary that will get you prepared for the meditation. The comments are not too short nor too long. He also reviews each session afterward, so you can get an idea of how you're doing. I really enjoyed learning from him. I own many of his audio presentations and a few of his books.
