Great daily ritual

I love starting my mornings with this book. I am naturally a very stressful person but this helps to empty my mind and increase my ability to focus. Instead of waking up and letting my thoughts about the day control me I take 15 minutes to focus on my breathing and inner eye. It helps me to put things in perspective and enjoy life much more.

This helps a lot at night also. Instead of stressing about the day before falling asleep I can focus on breathing and letting all of my emotions pass through me. Personally this is very healing

Just awful

This is supposed to be a recording of Tao meditation. When hearing even just the word Tao, we tend to think of things like peace, gentleness, serenity....yet Cohen, I am so sorry to say, reads this book as if he's a military drill seargent snapping out orders to his troops. And he speaks too rapidly. Maybe he was an auctioneer sometime in his past! Anyway, he's a good writer but an awful, awful narrator.
