Mindfulness Meditation CD
By Sarah Edelman PhD
A brand new CD from best selling practitioner, Dr Sarah Edelman who provides us with another tool for becoming more mindful in our everyday lives. Mindfulness is a technique in which a person results in being intentionally conscious of their judgement and events in the present instant, non-judgementally. It plays a significant role in Buddhism with Right Mindfullness meditation being the seventh element of the Noble 8 Fold Path, the Sadhana of which is to engender 'insight' and 'wisdom'. Mindfulness Meditation is an ancient practice that involves bringing one's attention fully to the present moment. This CD contains guided mindfulness exercises, spoken by psychologist Dr Sarah Edelman. These exercises help the listener to develop the skill of mindfulness meditation. Once developed, this skill can also be used to bring mindful awareness to situations that arise in daily life. A reassuring voice guides the listener to focus on aspects of current sensory experience, with intermittent reminders to refocus attention when the mind drifts off. Mindfulness points to: Being aware of and paying attention to the moment in which we find ourselves. Our past is gone; our future is not yet here. So what exists between them is the present moment. If I can observe and not get caught up in my thoughts, it is all that I have. The here and now, the present is the link which holds what was and what will be. My past was a series of present moments which brought me to this present moment. My future will be a series of present moments effected by only present moment in which I am now living, being, doing, observing, being aware or unaware, and attentive or un-attentive. "Mindfulness Meditation" contains 6 guided meditation tracks between 10-12 minutes in length for individuals with recurrent depression. Mindfulness is also beneficial int he management of anxiety disorders and chronic pain, and it assists in the management of cravings for alcohol, nicotine and emotional eating.
