Ah, this really isn’t a 28 day program. It’s a 4-week program. That was disappointing. I wanted 28 little steps.

This book teaches loving kindness meditation. For example:
“The customary phrases are usually variations on May I Be Safe …, May I Be Happy, May I Be Healthy, May I Live with Ease …” (Chapter 4)

Ten Ways to Deepen Your Practice (Lovingkindness chapter)
1. Think of kindness as a strength, not as a weakness.
2. Look for the good in yourself—
3. Remember that everyone wants to be happy.
4. Recollect those who have helped or inspired us.
5. Practice at least one act of generosity a day.
6. Do lovingkindness meditation.
7. Listen.
8. Include those who seem left out.
9. Refrain from speaking ill of others.
10. “Walk a mile in another person’s shoes before you pass judgment.”

Thanks to Workman for a free copy in exchange for my review.

This book was not as helpful to me as I would have liked. I did enjoy the messages within, but I just don't see it as a book that I would pick up multiple times to reference for meditations. I'm also not super familiar with meditating, so maybe I need something more "basic" or guided than this. But again, it does have some good insights and is probably worth a read if this kind of thing is your vibe. And I will say, it's not just a bunch of toxic positivity platitudes - Salzberg does encourage readers to sit with their negative feelings and honor them. I just don't think it was the right kind of book for me right now.… (lisätietoja)

Not so much an audiobook as a repurposing of an online course. Because of that, there's lots of repetition and many long, blank areas that are left silent for your practice. That's not a criticism, but just something to be aware of.

Good stuff here, but I was looking for more discussion than guided practice.
