Do you want to develop meditation and your mind to their full potential? If so, you wil find that it all depends on your ability to stay focused on what is important in the moment, and skillfully manage the inevitable distractions. Sustained attention is the starting point for all the higher mental faculties, such as memory, learning, judgement and planning, and it is the key to success in everything we do, big or small.
This audiobook will explain in detail what attention is and how it works, both in meditation and moment-to-moment during the day. It gives the theoretical understanding that supports the practical exercises in the How to MeditateCDs. The first CD explains focusing, which is fairly easy to understand if difficult to do. The second CD explains the more subtle aspect of attention that we call awareness, or mindfulness, or self-observation.
Meditation can help you: focus deeply on anything; stop thoughts and restrain impulses; manage mental confusion; understand the interaction of body, mind and emotion; be fully present to what is happening; make good judgements, think clearly and intuitively, and much more. This audiobook will explain how.
