Passage to Nondual States

Goldstein and his audio books have been one of my great teachers. I strongly recommend learning from audio rather than reading. With great teachers, so much of the equanimity is conveyed through the voice, a quality you cannot absorb from the written page.

After some years of meditation practice, I use this guided meditation when I am particularly anxious or agitated, and it can quickly take me out of myself and return me to a feeling of connectedness with and non-separation from the universe. It brings me calm and a meta-awareness. Thank you, Joseph.

Excellent guided meditation.

This short audio book is a guided meditation. I tried it and really could feel the power of meditation right away. Even only five minutes into it, I felt the effects. Towards the end, I was feeling transcendent. I'm a skeptic of meditation, but now can begin to understand the benefits.

Listen to this most days

It's a 25 minute guided Buddhist mindfulness practice in the lineage of insight meditation. Joseph Goldstein's American accent is pleasant and his tone deep and rich. The voice is important for me as it can be a distraction. It's a bit repetitive at times but I think this is intentional and I got used to it and actually found the repetition deepened my practice.
