When Audible.com staff dug into data for top audiobooks in the company’s 20-year history, they found one by Prof. Mark Muesse of the Department of Religious Studies. Muesse’s Practicing Mindfulness: An Introduction to Meditation is a “Best-Selling Great Course” on Audible’s 20th anniversary list of most popular titles.
The audiobook was released in 2013 by The Great Courses, which is a series of college-level audio and video courses taught by America’s top professors. Practicing Mindfulness contains a collection of lectures explaining the precise techniques involved in meditation as well as how these skills can be applied to gain greater insight into the operation of the mind and promote greater well-being.
Muesse is a longtime practitioner and teacher of contemplative studies.
