Practicing with the following CD, which includes information from Dr. Weiss's two audio cassettes, is the most essential part of the Course:
The Guided Body Scan helps you enter a deep state of relaxation, as you learn the art of escorting attention to where you want it to be. The Guided Sitting Meditation facilitates moment-to-moment awareness of thoughts, emotions, physical sensations which gives a greater ability to influence life circumstances. The Introduction to Walking Meditation reminds you that mindfulness can be accomplished in any posture and at any moment during the day or night, without people noticing what you're doing for yourself (e.g., while working, conversing, eating, waiting for a bus, on the telephone......)!
You can purchase the Guided Body Scan and the Guided Sitting Meditation as audio cassettes, whereas the Compact Disc includes both the Body Scan, the Sitting Meditation, plus an Introduction to Walking Meditation. Within a few months of consistent use, higher levels of mindfulness occur with rare, or no, use of the CD or audio cassettes.
