A very gentle experience
on 15 August 2006
This CD is really among the best I have tried. It does not try to force "self actualisation" through forceful suggestion like many other very self-centred styles I have heard on "self-hypnosis" cd's I tried: "you are so talented, you have so much potential, let go now, let go...". Most of them advocating that the latest thing is to combine music and hypnotic suggestions. Those are all cheap commercial gimmicks.
Guided mediation is about allowing the person to reach understanding of emotions and feelings as ideas, to examine them equally and in a balanced way and to extrapolate from there into a deeper calm understanding. This is precisely what this CD is doing, particularly with the "Meta" technique.
The voice of the person on the recording is superbly calming and peaceful. It does not force upon the listener anything beyond what they themselves wish to create and to experience. There is no music, no other distractive sounds just a calm voice guiding you and focusing you. No suggestions of what to experience, just what to look for in your own way.
Highly recommended for people new to meditation, or people wishing to experience a good beginning to meditation.
