On this page, you’ll find the very best mindfulness meditation CDs, mindfulness books and mindfulness DVDs to supplement our articles on mindfulness.
Isn’t it a blessing to be able to enjoy truly inspiring books, CDs and DVDs? Deepak Chopra, Thich Nhat Hanh, the Dalai Lama, Doreen Virtue… there are so many fantastic minds out there, and we get to lie back and enjoy their talents.
I remember the very first mindfulness meditation meditation book I read. It was called Awakening The Buddha Within. It moved me and changed my life. Then there was The Power of Now, The Book of Secrets, Peace In Every Step.
There are so many wonderful meditation CDs, books and DVDs that it’s been a little difficult compiling this list of the best meditation CDs, books and DVDs of all time. I had to cut out so many titles (and felt guilty every time I did so). But what’s left is, in my opinion, the absolute best meditation products on the market. I very highly recommend every single one of them. Let’s take a look at the titles that made it onto my list.
The Best Mindfulness BOOKS
Mindfulness in Plain English By Henepola Gunaratana
The single best book on the practice of Vipassana meditation (a mindfulness based meditation), Mindfulness in Plain English is designed to revolutionise your life, and it will. This is perhaps the best book for learning the basics of mindfulness meditation, taught by a Buddhist monk who is an authority on the subject.
Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life By Thich Nhat Hanh
Peace in Every Step is a small book but a great one nonetheless. Written by Thich Nhat Hanh, the foremost figure in mindfulness meditation, it is packed full of practical exercises and tips by which Western audiences may take advantage of the Western mindset. This book is certain to make you look at the world in a whole new light.
The Mindfulness Solution by Ronald D. Siegel
The Mindfulness Solution shows how mindfulness can be used in simple ways to relax you in your day to day life. It covers mindfulness in such basic chores as walking the dog or driving to work. As such, this is a mindfulness book you can directly apply to real life.
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
The Power of Now is not directly marketed as a mindfulness book, but in reality it is precisely that, and one of the very best mindfulness books too. This is one of the most popular self improvement works and has inspired millions of people around the world. It’s a must-read title.
Happiness: Essential Mindfulness Practices by Thich Nhat Hanh
In this mindfulness meditation book, Thich Nhat Hanh lays down the path through which we can all achieve lasting happiness. Best of all, he does so with simple and practical advice, showing how chores such as walking, eating, driving, doing the dishes and more can be used as mindfulness meditation to cultivate peace of mind and happiness.

The Best Mindfulness DVDS

He explains how our busy lives can lead to urban depression and offers mindfulness exercises and techniques to help cure depression and promote peace and inner calm.
Meditation For Beginners
This DVD covers meditation and yoga, containing both a relaxing meditation program (which is easy to do), a body scan and a seated meditation. The music is beautiful and relaxing and everything is explaining so easily a child could do it. Perfect.
Didn’t find a book that satisfies your needs. You should probably consider these alternative meditation tools.
