5-0 out of 5 stars Puts me to sleep (but that's a good thing)
I have trouble staying asleep some nights, and I've recently found that certain types of music or sounds can put me in a relaxed state. Steven Halpern's "Chakra Suite" is one of the best for this purpose.

The chakra suite is supposed to be used to meditate on each of the seven chakras or power centers of the body. I am not one who meditates, on chakras or other things, but if you do meditate, this is supposed to be a good aid to focus one's energy and concentration. The bonus on this CD is the "Spectrum Suite" and another bonus, Sonic Satori thath is supposed to use the power of sonic entrainment. a psycho-acoustic technology with an effect on brainwaves.The music involves notes with 8 cycles per second, which is said to synch the brain to relaxed brain waves, for example:
Alpha - 8-12 CPS (associated with relaxed, calm, and creative waking state)
Theta - 5-7 CPS (associated with dreams, suggestive states, hypnagogic states)
Delta - 1-4 CPS (associated with deep, dreamless sleep)

Whatever the effect, I find playing one of the suites as I lie in bed, relaxes me to the point where I drop off easily. I also like it for a quick relaxation break during a stressful, long day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Peace
There is a scientific principle called entrainment. If two items are vibrating side by side at different speeds then the item that vibrates at the lower speed will adjust to vibrate at the same frequency as the other object.

Examples of this are swings in a playground that are swinging out of sync and adjust. Also, in a clock store you may notice the pendulum clocks of the same size swinging back and forth in unison.

Applied to sound your different chakras or energy points vibrate at different frequencies and notes vibrating at a specific rate for a prolonged period will cause your energy points to reattune themselves, and bring your chakras back into balance, and promote a sense of well being and peace.

This cd applies these principles using swirling harmonics and overtones and beautiful instrumental sounds such as chimes and bowls including the rhodes piano to create an atmospheric sound.

I can feel the musical vibrations resonate thoroughout my body, and I certainly do feel more relaxed even after a short listen.

This record has been rated as groundbreaking by New Age Voice.

I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY EFFECTIVE
I have listened to many different "chakra balancing" CDs, but this is the only recording where I have actually distinctly felt the sounds or appropriate chakras resonating the exact chakra spots - I could feel, without wondering if anything is happening, the sound vibrating in my body right where it's supposed to have an effect - so for that purpose, this is my favorite CD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally relaxing and Works!
I love this CD, I listen to it daily to balance my chakras! Even if you don't believe it actually balances your chakras, it is beautiful and relaxing to listen to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
While healing from a fractured ankle, I played this several times a day. I don't know if it accelerated my healing--I suspect it did. It certainly helped me to relax and deal with the inactivity. I continue to listen to it for sheer pleasure and relaxation and play it in the background much of the time. I would recommend Chakra Suite to almost anyone, regardless of musical preferences. ...

Featuring the soothing narration of Deepak Chopra over the trancelike music ofAdam Plack, The Soul of Healing Meditations serves as an introduction to meditation for neophytes and as a more advanced tool to help overcome a physical ailment and/or emotional toxicity. That may make it sound like a digital elixir, but as Chopra says in his liner notes: "We like to tell our patients (at the Chopra Center for Well Being) that the body is the best pharmacy in the world and is capable of making wonder drugs."His message here is that one can naturally prevail over serious life challenges by becoming more attuned to one's body--by relaxing and filtering out the external world, focusing on and influencing internal sensations and biorhythms, and banishing negative thoughts and focusing on the positive aspects of life. This CD is not meant as a cure-all for physical or emotional ills. Rather, it's a supplemental experience to other treatments or programs, and it shows how enlightening and empowering meditation can be when practiced properly. Its actual effects will depend upon the receptiveness of the listener. Plack's accompanying soundtrack ranges from delicate ambient tones to more active Indian music, appropriately serving the mood of each of the album's eight tracks. --Bryan Reesman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Peace & Joy
Wonderful CD! It's a joy to listen to! Some tracks were very calming, others were energizing...the benefits were apparent immediately. Dr. Chopra's voice was very soothing, and the lessons were very useful & comforting. The music was cool too.

Very quick & convenient way to bring some peace into your life & get you ready to face the world. Highly recommended. I even lost weight after listening to this a few days (crazy, right? more nervous binges)

5-0 out of 5 stars You have to listen to it to get the benefits!
I just finished listening to the CD. WOW! You have to experience the whole CD to get the benefits from it. I did listen to the tracks online before I ordered it. I had a hunch it would turn out to be a peace filling experience.... And it was! I recommend this CD to anyone who wants to relax and let go any tension in their body. It is simply amazing! I had heard about Deepak Chopra's books but this CD is pure healing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best guided relaxation source I ever had.
I have several guided meditation tapes, CDs and videos but none have ever taken me so deeply within my Self as this one.

The background chanting and oriental music was a pleasant surprise.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome and Profound
This CD is a must have for those on a spiritual healing path. I LOVE, the results are amazing from just the first time. I am very excited about adding it to my usual nightly meditation routine.

I noticed significant changes in my physical body and my awareness after the first time. I highly recommend this to everyone who is willing to commit the time to reap the benefits. It's powerful and awesome. I love it. ... Read more

While many Jim Brickman fans claim a stronger allegiance to the pianist/songwriter's non-vocal works, even they have to concede that the Cleveland native has an uncanny touch for crafting catchy, affecting love songs. Many of Brickman's best-known heart-tuggers are on display here, a relatively brief disc (43 minutes) that samples nine of the 10 recordings released during the first decade (1994-2003) of Brickman's career. The breakdown: Five instrumental tracks (one of them "Partners in Crime," his oversaxed, smooth jazz-targeted duet with Dave Koz), six older vocal selections, and two new vocal tracks--the winner being "'Til I See You Again," an engaging, upbeat piece authored by producer David Grow and sung with from-the-mountaintop vigor by Christian vocalist Mark Schultz. Outside of the straining, Mariah Carey-like excesses of "Destiny," the selections here are easy to digest, yet they exhibit a level of sophistication that smartly counteracts their modest saccharine/sentimentality content. This is no small feat--a testament to Brickman's intuitive link to deeper, hard-to-articulate human yearnings and his connection to clear-eyed romantics searching for an antidote to a world gone wild with cynicism. --Terry Wood ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Thanks For The Introduction To Mehdi
I've always enjoyed Jim Brickman and this album is no exception, but while reading some of the customer recommendations posted on this page I discovered an artist by the name of Mehdi (pronounced meddie). After some investigation I found his site (SoothingMusic.Com) and listened to the samples...I also downloaded some of the free MP3 downloads that are available on Amazon.com.
I was instantly blown away by the quality of this music and so I gave it a try and now that I have listened to his CDs several times I really must say that although I'm still a Jim Brickman fan I find Mehdi to be a tad more interesting. I have them both in my multi-disc CD player and love the way they compliment each other. I highly recommend that you give this artist a try or atleast just go listen to the samples, I have a feeling you'll be glad you did.

4-0 out of 5 stars In a world of chaos, young Brickman shines bright and true
As mentioned in past Jim Brickman CD reviews, I discovered this gentle man's lovely music in a local bookstore one day, whilst arguing with a book clerk over the trivial matter of whether or not I gave him a ten or a twenty dollar bill to complete our simple transaction. I was buying a hypnotic cassette to help improve my overall self-confidence. Anyway, in the midst of our heated argument, we both noticed a change in the air, as the friendly female clerk back in the music department played Brickman's second CD, the one where the cover shows him sitting by the water in jeans and a loose-fitting white shirt, with not a harried care in the world. Hearing the first tinkles of some majestic piano interlude, my demeanor, as well as the goateed clerk's, changed instantly, and we at once became brothers, forgetting the trivialities of money, and embracing the world in which we live, together, as brother and brother. Instantaneously, we recognized ourselves as the small people we were, within the much larger world we inhabited. It was, I swear to you, a transcending experience I hope never to forget. Thank you, Jim.

Nevertheless, it was recently announced that the keyboardist for death metal legends Hallow's Eve quit the band, citing irreconcilable differences. NOW'S YOUR CHANCE, JIM!!! Jump on board before they get someone else less qualified!! I feel that Brickman's brand of metal piano could only enhance Hallow's Eve's already stellar metal work. Time's a-wastin', so get that resume out, Mr. Brickman. Show 'em what you're made of!!!

But back to Jim Brickman's work, or "JB's" work, as the hardcore metal fanatics and groupies refer to him. I feel that in this world of anger, cynicism and never-ending dark news, Brickman brings hope to the depressed, vision to the meek, and humility to the CEO-types of the world. No one is immortal, and Brickman's sensitive brand of piano makes that abundantly clear. His music is perfect for any occasion: making love, crying, watching TV with the mute function on, yelling at crank callers - hey, you name it, Brickman provides the atmosphere. I may not know the specifics of what makes piano music exquisite, but I certainly understand what I hear, and I hear brilliance in Brickman. This man is a loving genius, folks, embrace his work whilst he roams the earth.

Still, word has it that Black Sabbath and another famous metal band are going to reform and tour for Ozzfest this year. What in Christ's good name are you waiting for, Jim!!! Call Sharon Osbourne and demand to get on the bill, for your sparkling brand of death metal piano fits perfectly towards what those bands are trying to achieve. You owe it to yourself to expand, young Jim.

Young Brickman must take things up a level, and become the household name he so deserves to be. I only hope that piano lovers can appreciate what I and young Brickman are trying to say and achieve, and I only hope that you have a wonderful day...

FILL YOUR LIFE WITH TRUTH!!!!
FILL YOUR LIFE WITH BRICKMAN!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Jim Brickman's legacy is here for the listening
The first time I heard the instrumental piano of "Angel Eyes" I had to know where I could get a copy almost immediately. I was so hooked on this piece. Then I heard one of my all time favorite pop songs ever "Valentine" sung by Martina McBride and I couldn't get enough of that lovely song.
So goes the music of Jim Brickman, under-rated and less recognized by name by some but the tracks you cannot help but recognize. I love each track equally for the movement by the melodies.

This cd slternates Jim Brickman's most beloved instrumental music with songs he's written but sung by a variety of vocalists from Michael W. Smith to Jordan Hill and Billy Porter.

"Partners in Crime" you'll recognize immediately too especially featuring the ever delicious saxophone of Dave Koz.

"Rocket To The Moon", "If You Believe" and "Hero's Dream" are some of the loveliest piano instrumentals in popular music.

The song you will probably recognize the quickest on the entire cd is "The Gift" with astonishing vocals by Collin Raye and Susan Ashton.

This cd is a treasure trove of great musical love songs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Found a Hit!
He's just a dishwasher that dj's on the weekends who just measured out all the details of the stereo components' placement in our den and left the receiver tuned to "his favorite" channel whose best way of telling me what I needed to hear at this time of the night after the weekend we just shared, after getting his voice mail message instead of being there to hear him telling me that he chose to keep a difficult promise instead of what he has the "right" to do, I powered up the new hook up and heard him tell me what this song had to say. If he hears this song and album it will confirm to him that I got the message of his heart some how. Going to buy him a copy tomorrow.

4-0 out of 5 stars MOST GREAT INTRO TO BRICKMAN BUT NOT ALL
Although I have enjoyed Mr. Brickman's music in the past and even know someone in his family, I was somewhat disappointed with this collection. That doesn't mean however I would not listen to it often nor even buy another album of his. I had already the album of his with Martina McBride (one of my favorite Country Musicians) and that is definitely THE best one of all. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Delta Sleep CD is Great
I don't have any problems falling asleep-(waking up is a different story!)-but I bought this Cd along with The Alpha and Theta. This CD is awesome. How Dr. Jeffrey Thompson puts all these sounds together is always very beautiful and harmonious -no jolting sounds, so it's a smooth slide into dreamland. On this CD there is a more celestial vibe to the music, like your floating out of body deep in space, in the universe's womb (silly sounding but that's the image it conjures up for me). I can see how someone having trouble falling asleep would want this CD, something about it just makes it so sleep falls easy over you-one minute your awake and the next your deep asleep. I'd fall asleep with this CD on but I'm a side sleeper and the headphones would end up digging into my ears. If I had detachable headphones though I would listen to this CD every night. Instead I just listen to it until I'm in that hypogonic (sp?) state.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worked very well for me. The music isn't bad either.
I bought this CD because I was sick of staring at the clock at 3:00 when I had to get up at 5:00. When I first recieved it I decided to try it immediately, in the mid-afternoon. All I remember from that first experience is about three minutes of hazy synthesizer music and then.........two hours later waking up. I didn't even mind sleeping with headphones on, which usually bugs me, even with the most peaceful music. Very impressive. That night I slept on the couch (no stereo in my bedroom at the time) and set the cd player to loop over and over all night. I occasionally woke up during the night but was asleep again in five minutes or less, and I had some very vivid dreams as well, which was cool. To avoid using headphones, I bought a portable cd player, a headphone jack splitter from Radio Shack, and two pair of small self-powered speakers. I placed one pair on the window sill above my headboard and the other pair on a table at my feet. This arrangement works very well as it places me inside the stereo soundfield no matter what, which Dr. Thompson recommends. I also bought his other sleep CD "Ambient music for sleep" and I recommend getting them both, but if you're only going to get one, I recommend this one, just because the general quality of the music seems better to me. It's also effective to play on your computer to keep you from being online all night.

5-0 out of 5 stars Destroys the voices
For anyone that suffers from disruptive worry and dialogue in one's head, this is most definitely for you.

If you suffer from Schizophrenic symptoms, this will drown out the sudden disruptive memories without the harmful side effects of most medication.

Delta Sleep will prolong life by slowing metabolism when you need to slow it down and rest.

As someone who has suffered from mental anguish most my life, I highly recommend this as a remedy for similar ills.

2-0 out of 5 stars Another sleepless night...
What a disappointment this CD was for me. I had read positive reviews about this CD, but unfortunately this piece of work didn't help me sleep at all. I have tried so many things for relaxation and getting to sleep, yet more $$ down the tubes. I'd love to hear about something that really works.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful sleep aid
I've had problems sleeping for years and have used medications such as Ambien to break the insomnia logjam. I've also used the Hemi-Sync products to sleep. Found out about this CD and also purchased Ambient Sleep. I loaded these on my MP3 player and use earbuds to listen. I play one or tracks through once and the MP3 player automatically shuts off. These CDS have worked for me to get me to sleep more quickly and seem to help me stay asleep longer. I used this on my recent trip to Europe and helped me get to sleep quickly and wake up feeling refreshed. It's helped me reduce somewhat the amount of sleep medication I use. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars peaceful rejuvenation
This is a wonderful guided meditation cd. With Mary's soothing voice and the beautiful music I am able to go to a place of blissful peace and relaxation, yet I feel rejuvenated when I "return."

With the fast pace of our world it is a great way for me to let go of daily stresses and reconnect with myself. This CD has been extremely helpful!

5-0 out of 5 stars The ease of listening to "The Ease of Being" CD
With all the wordly pressures of living here in the 21st century Mary Maddux's CD "The ease of being" is a "Must have". The calming music and Mary's kind and compassionate voice take you to a place where there is true peace, security, and total contentment.

Track 1: "A centering meditation" is just wonderful for bringing oneself into a focused state, where you can concentrate/meditate on any chosen subject, or embark on a journey into the far off reaches of your mind.

Track 2: "A healing meditation" is just that, this works just fine for mental & physical healing (I had a "Thumper" of a headache that just refused to vanish, but it went after I listened to this track) it helps you to look at the problem in hand and, as is most often the case, once you look at problems they're put into perspective and they either shrink to a size where you can acknowledge and work with them, or they disappear completely.

Track 3: "Flowing freely: An emotional healing meditation" works great when one has been emotionally battered and bruised, it recharges one's "Batteries" and and makes one emotionally whole once again, ready to take on those difficult and rough people/situations (that can leave you all to drained) with renewed vigor and enthusiasm.

All in all a 10 out of 10, or in this case a true 5 star recommendation, this is such a down to earth CD, and one that you'll surely not regret buying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soothing and Relaxing!!
As a Reiki Master/Teacher and spiritual advisor, I am always trying to get students and clients to meditate. "I get too distracted," or "I can't relax enough," are the complaints I ususally hear. I'm a big fan of this CD, as Mary's voice has a calming quality, and yet, it is captivating at the same time. Friends have told me that the CD does the trick for them! I have been recommending this CD to all my clients and students or anyone who has difficulty relaxing. I can't wait for her next endeavor!

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I am good at meditation and I only bought this CD because I wanted to experience what it is like to get into guided meditation, feeling the "company" of someone else's voice.
I was very disappointed. The author uses endless sentences, very long phrases that, instead of helping, keep the listener waiting for her next words, wondering what she is going to say next or when she is going to finally put a semi-colon or a stop. More than guided meditation this looks like a lecture on how to meditate, a lecture one should have to *listen to* and *think about*. Though her voice and tone are correct, at times, the author seems to be looking for the right word, which rather than helping the listener keeps him wondering what is coming next... and hoping it comes soon.
In my opinion, short and repetitive phrases should be used in meditation- most specially with beginners- and that is precisely what the author has failed to provide.

5-0 out of 5 stars S.B. Wells, CMT, Reiki practitioner, musician
The Ease of Being is full of quiet, simple and clean meditations that get right to the heart of the matter. If you seek a truthful, no-nonsense meditation to get you to a place that is centered, calm and non-reactive, then this is the CD you have been looking for. The background music is extremely soothing, and, combined with the voice of the narrator, Mary Maddux, creates a complete healing space to sink into. I really don't know how I ever lived without this CD! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great surf.
This is a great ocean surf cd. It has great sounds all the way through and it's very long playing, too. It will definitely sooth and relax you. It doesn't bore *me*. Another great thing about this cd is that the sounds are quiet and NEVER LOUD OR VIOLENT AT ALL, which makes a great relaxation cd. I hope it won't bore you, either. If you like the sound of the quiet surf and don't mind nothing else, no music or anything, I think and hope you'll like this cd. I, personally, would reccomend you to go for it! It's a great relaxation cd for anybody.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just Ocean
Great nature albums are so acoustically balanced that they don't need music, and this is one of those albums. It's not busy with the sounds of other animals, or of anything else for that matter, just the sound of the surf. The beach where this was recorded must have had a very gentle ocean, as the waves don't seem to crash as much as they roll. Sometimes the sound of trickling water can be heard, as the wave slowly washes away. There are no sudden changes in volume or dynamics throughout the album making it perfect to put on repeat and fall asleep to.

5-0 out of 5 stars pure perfection!
I love tranquil "white noise" and the thunderstorms are great. But I really enjoy this. It's straight rolling gentle surf. The water lapping on the shores, the rising and falling off the water. Great for relaxing, super mood-setter for writers.

There is music overlaid over this just straight surf...puts me in mind of moonlight stroll on white beaches in the Hebrides.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Way to Unwind
I got this CD almost 2 years ago to help during a time where I was experiencing a lot of anxiety. That problem passed in a couple of months, but I still listen to it every day. Not only is it a terrific meditation to have on in the background of your home, but I often listen to it with headphones on while I read. It is not distracting to my reading and I find the novel I'm reading is enhanced as it allows me to block out atmospheric sounds in the house(I listen to it with noise cancelling headphones on sometimes and I swear if I close my eyes it seems like I'm at the ocean). It is a terrific recording of just peaceful ocean surf and I would suggest it to anyone for realxation, stress relief, or even if you just love the ocean.

This sounds like a ocean surf you would hear in the morning with lapping waves.There is no seagulls in this just the breathtaking sound of the ocean.This is the only ocean cd solitudes has that doesn't have seagulls.This is a good cd to wake up by as the waves are so soothing.You can also put it on before you go to bed at night.Also there's no music in this. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Ocean in your landlocked bedroom
I am a big fan of environmental sounds for relaxation. I often put the cd player on a timer for going to sleep if I am stressed, or use it for coaxing myself back to sleep if I wake with insomnia . The sad truth is that nearly my entire life, I've had trouble staying asleep the entire night. There is no time of night more USELESS than three am when you can't do anything that would wake up the rest of the house or else you really HAVE to sleep for a busy morning to come. Sometimes I get up and write, but recently, I've started playing environmental sounds to get to sleep and stay asleep. It really works for me.

The problem with many of the ocean recordings I've heard is that they are either too crashingly loud, or have a fake sound, or the repeat is too short, all of which disturb you from the illusion of lying on a beach, dozing off. The quality of this recording is excellent. I can also say that this recording is fantastic when stuck on a long flight back from the West Coast. Just put on the headphones, and drop off for needed sleep on the red-eye. Ahhh.

The peaceful rhythm of the waves make me feel like I'm camped right on the beach at night. Enough variety to sound like the real thing, but no fancy crescendos to shake you up. I play this a lot to go to sleep or relax after work, and just let the fantasy take over. With this CD I can close my eyes and be on my favorite beach in South Carolina. Great buy for the money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rhythms of the Earth
I couldn't recommend this CD more highly. It's almost as good as lying out on the beach... your eyes closed... listening to the waves.

There may be other recordings every bit as good but there's none better. The recording artist used good equipment and placed the microphones just right on a wonderful beach where the waves break and roar and hiss and run up on the sand. You can hear the small pebbles click and tumble as the waves ebb and draw back.

I bought this CD hoping it would help me get back to sleep at 3:00 in the morning. It does that and more. I play it when I'm relaxing in the living room. I play it when I'm reading, when I'm talking with my sweetie on the telephone. It's like fire. Something in us needs it... those sounds... those rhythms of the earth.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great live recording!
It actually says on the CD sleeve that this is a real recording. I went to school for audio recording and find this to be a wonderful and relaxing recording of the ocean. The surf is a little strong at first, but appropriately gets softer as the CD progresses. I was not at all distracted by any 'static' (it must be noted, however, that when recording audio at the beach you sometimes get a staticy noise from wind--even with a filter). I highly recommend this CD which I currently use during self-hypnosis and eventually childbirth.

One of the fundamental criticisms of New Age music is that it puts people to sleep. Here, Steven Halpern, one of the founding fathers of New Age, makes that his mission and, as you might expect, does an effective job of it. Drawing on catalog material from the early 1980s, Halpern builds an attractive collection of delicate, lighter-than-air sonic textures that nicely serves the intended purpose--to fill the silence with something prettier than white noise. Halpern does so by blending electric and acoustic piano, plus additional keyboards, to create soothing, improvisational, cloudlike musical abstractions that often convey the tranquil randomness of wind chimes in a soft breeze. The liner notes also promise your subconscious will be exposed to a series of subliminal, sleep-encouraging affirmations along the quiet, unstructured way. This may sound like so much frou-frou to the unconverted, but for anyone sincerely interested in a sleep aid, Halpern's disc is a certified snoozer, a New Age music box. Other New Age discs may accomplish the same purpose as Sleep Soundly, but few will do it as persuasively. --Terry Wood ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is good to help you sleep and....
I have so many Halpern CDs, its unbelievable. I recommend this one and several by Jeffrey Thompson, Delta Sleep System and the two CDs sets Music for Sleep Collections 1 and 2. Great!! I have no problems sleeping now that all of these are available for me to use. Never get bored with one, because there are now so many good selections to choose from. GO GET 'EM!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for PTSD/trauma survivors
Suffering from PTSD, this CD has helped me to cope with flashbacks. Before getting this CD, it used to take hours for me to fall asleep and even then, I had a very troubled sleep. Now, I play this CD every night as I go to sleep and within minutes, I am asleep. No more flashbacks at night, and the CD helps create a safe feeling inside.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works!
I never hear the end of the CD because I fall asleep so quick. The music is so beautiful and peaceful. I recommend it for all people who have trouble falling asleep!

5-0 out of 5 stars Out Like a Light! Wow
Actually, NOT out like a light because I fell asleep even before I could turn my light out. This cd is great. I purchased it because since the tragic events of September 11 I seem to have trouble falling and staying asleep. I put it on continuous play mode and woke up feeling (gasp!) eager and excited to face Monday morning. Give it a try.

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY nice cd to have at your bedside.
This is my first Steve Halpern CD and I would have no reservations about getting more. The music is beautiful...it kind of weaves through your mind relaxing you. I, like another reviewer don't think I've ever heard the end of the tape. I'm always asleep. I love being able to play this at night and am VERY glad that I took the chance and ordered music by someone new to me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Winner!
This is a CD I listen to all the time, and it's been months since I got it; however, I like the first CD far better than the second one in this set.
I think Krishna Das sounds better on this CD than on any other one I have heard, and Deva Premal's voice is like honey.
Very uplifting, not light and ethereal. Good for feeling grounded.

5-0 out of 5 stars A much calmer karma
Oh nhtibbets, you must not be thrice picky - especially if you teach yoga. Please get out of that sour milk sea. You don't belong there. This album is sublimation at it's very very best. It could only be improved by adding a track by flautist Wes Mahatt - perhaps 'Meditation at Giza VI' from his most recent album. Other than that I find it quite faultless. Peace!

5-0 out of 5 stars a must have for yoga class
I am a yoga teacher and am picky, picky, picky. It is hard to find a compilation cd (or any cd) that you can play through without the sour apple track that makes you bristle during class. These two are perfect. The first cd is beautiful...great fun chants, I actually like all of them...very uplifting before class...then the 2nd cd is just right during class. No annoying vocals or horns or screeching flutes, just a steady meditative pace, and no wimpy New Age tracks. Peace!

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent compilation
If you ever attended a yoga class where background music was played or if you have read any yoga magazines, chances are that you are familiar with most of the artists compiled under this two-Cd album. Names such as Krishna Das, Jay Uttal, Deva Premal and Rasa, just to name a few, are some of the great artists grouped here. Even if you don't practice yoga, but enjoy listening to world (or trance) music, you'll probably enjoy this tape as much as I do.
The first Cd has Indian healing chants but performed by westerners, (as Krishna Das writes on the intro to the booklet); so if the lyrics are Indian, the music is not. It may fall in the category of enviromental or acoustic which makes it more appealing for our western taste.
The second Cd is instrumental and more suitable for a meditation or relaxation practice. The insert booklet comes with illustrations of a basic yoga class with asanas or poses familiar to anyone who has practice yoga.
I listen to this album on my way to and from work and it really takes my worries away from rush hour. The music selection is excellent and there are a few tracks that have quite an upbeat tempo, you'll probably will want to dance to. The best thing about this compilation is that you get all these great artist in one single album, so you save some bucks having to buy each single one. I'm sure this album will become a bestseller soon. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Reverent, beautiful
After criticizing Windham Hill in the past for often recycling the same songs over and over in various collections, I have to hand it to them with the new "Prayer" CD. It's a fine set of all-new acoustic versions of hymns or spiritual songs, plus a good number of original compositions. Producer Dawn Atkinson has done an excellent job of lining up a bunch of top-drawer people for "Prayer," and in working with the artists on the song selection.

Things get started with Tim Story's lovely piano rendition of the "Sanctus" from Faure's Requiem. The quiet and reflective tone of that piece carries throughout the CD. Other highlights include Paul McCandless's moving "Lord's Prayer" version and Steve Erquiaga's "Ave Maria." "Prayer" is a perfect disc for background listening if you're engaged in some activity that needs harmonious yet unobtrusive accompaniment. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Calming, soothing, uplifting
While first learning Reiki (Level 1), I used this CD while Reiking myself. As a Reiki level 2, I use this CD when I am doing Reiki treatments on myself, my clients, and even when I do absentee healing. My clients love the music and find it easy to relax to. I find the music to be calming, soothing, uplifting. I like this particular CD, as well as the other Merlin's Magic CD's for meditation as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Calm, soothing, blissful music
Being new at reiki, this was the first CD I purchased to help reach the alpha state. The calm, soothing, soulful sounds are some of the most relaxing I have ever experienced. My children like it so much they listen to it at night to help them sleep. The soulful cello melodies of "Earth Songs" blend with the sounds of the Brazilian rainforest. The romantic "Desire For Love" combines strings, piano and other acoustics along with the sounds of nature. The "Dance Of Dreams" uses flutes, singing bowls and chimes for a positive meditation experience. This CD will give you an energy tune-up at the end of a long day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Carries you
I could listen to this CD all day long. In times of intense grief, it carried me, transported me. On an average day, it loosens my mind, my muscles and my senses within the first few minutes of play-time. I cannot recommend it enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Etheric Journey
Of all Merlin's Magic C.D.'s this one, "The Light Touch" is simply the best. I can listen to this over and over again and never tire of hearing it. It will transport you to a level of conciousness that is perfect for meditation or Reiki. If you are an insomniac, this is really much better than any pill they have on the market. Andreas Mock is truly a genius. This CD is very spiritual and I can think of no other that I like as much as I like and "love" this one. Do yourself a favor and buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music for Reiki
As a Reiki Practitioner, I use the Light Reiki Touch music of Merlin's Magic often. My clients find the music very relaxing during their treatments while at the same time quite rejuvenating. It is also great for gentle body massage. But wait, you don't need to practice Reiki to enjoy this cd. It's great for relaxation and meditation. I enjoy hearing the lovely sounds of the acustic guitar, keyboards, and Tibetan bells. I give this cd a 5 star rating!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth 4 Starts But I Gave It 5 Because Of Price!
First let me say that this is a GREAT buy! You get 5 different nature albums in one collection at a decent price.. My only complaint is the ocean track.. It sounds more like static than actual ocean waves. I would have rated this at 4 stars because of this cd but for the price I gave it 5. For a more realistic ocean track I would strongly suggest that you pick up "Peaceful Ocean Surf" by Nature's Music..

The other cds in this collection are great! Pick one up and take a listen! You won't be disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars The bargain of the century, part 2
This is the second of three box sets of five discs each from the "Echoes of Nature" series. These discs contain all natural sounds and no musical accompaniment. The titles in the box are "American Wilds," "Ocean Waves," "Morning Songbirds," "Thunderstorm," and "Frog Chorus." All are well produced, as one would expect from this sries, but I find "Thunderstorm" especially wonderful because, unlike some other thunderstorm recordings, this one includes not just just the storm sounds but also the sounds of the local wildlife, just as you might hear them before and after the rain.

Run a search on any of the individual CD titles for more reviews of the individual discs; most amazon.com readers are as pleased with these CDs as I am .

Consumer note: I don't know what the person who wrote the December 17, 2000 review is talking about. Perhaps he/she received a mislabeled box with the wrong CDs inside. I own this box and, like the previous reviewers, can attest to the fact that there is NO music on it.

3-0 out of 5 stars This meditation system makes some strange claims.
First off, these are some very relaxing cds. Got them as a gift, and i'm very happy with the gift, suited me perfectly. I don't relax well, think too much, etc.

If you're like me, and think too much, don't read the booklet that comes with the cds. They make some strage and false claims.

The most bizzare and glaringly false claim is that, "These recordings also use a nature sound not found anywhere else. In 1989 Dr. Thompson received from NASA recordings of space sounds taken from the Voyager spacecraft as it passed the outer planets of our solar system--Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune."

Well, I'm sure Voyager was recording plenty of stuff, but they sure weren't "sounds". Hollywood movies aside, there is no sound in outer space. There is no air in outer space, so there are no sounds to be recorded. Perhaps Dr. Thompson did receive sound recordings from Voyager, but you don't need a cd to hear silence.

The second odd claim is that, "Research has shown that theta states of mind can be induced through hearing sound pulses that match the speed of theta brainwaves (8-3.5 Hz). Using this scientifically tested principle, Dr. Thompson has built special theta frequency pulses into every sound track."

First off, no humans can hear sounds below 20 Hz, most ears don't even hear that low. So, even if these sounds are on the cds, you aren't hearing them. But, maybe they aren't there to be heard but instead act on your body, like the loud thundering at race car track that you feel vibrating your insides. Perhaps, but you don't have speakers that can produce sounds that low. Even most high-end sub-woofers don't go below 30hz. Some of the huge monsters in movie theaters can get down to 15-20 Hz, but unless you spent 50k on you home theater system, your speakers don't get that low.

Not saying the sounds aren't encoded on the cd, but your speakers aren't reproducing them. And if you know of speakers that make sounds as low as 3.5-8 Hz, i'm impressed.

That said, very chill cds. But obviously false claims like these sorta make me think this Dr. Thompson is a quack.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Effective!
One of the other reviewers agreed that the CD was very effective, but concluded that Dr. Jeffrey Thompson was a "quack" because the reviewer didn't understand how stereo speakers could possibly reproduce the very low frequencies for Theta: 5-7 CPS. The problem is that the reviewer was ignorant of the technology used by Dr. Thompson, which is only briefly referred to in the materials. Dr. Thompson utilizes a technology similar to that of the Monroe Institute, who has called it "Hemi-synch". The concept is that sounds are played on both the left and right stereo channels, and are electronically modified so that they are out of synch by the frequency you are trying to achieve in the brain...6 CPS, for example, if you want Theta brainwaves. This accomplishes two things: 1. It synchronizes the two hemispheres of the brain (a very good thing) and 2. It generates a 6 CPS pulse, which tends to entrain the brainwaves to that same frequency. This is a very, very effective technique, as is demonstrated by the effectiveness of the Theta Meditation System. I highly recommend these CDs for people who wish to attain the Theta state for relaxation or for personal metaphysical exploration. This is a proven technology, and far more effective than simple "New Age" relaxation music, since this technology directly drives the brain to create the frequencies desired.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gets you into the Theta state
I have been using these CDs for meditation for about 4 month and I really enjoy them. They really bring me to the Theta state: half sleeping, half awake.

I bought this CD set together with several Brainsync's cassettes and after awhile stopped using Brainsync's in favor of this one.

I have just ordered and received Dr. Jeffrey Thompson's "Delta sleeping" and "Alpha relaxation". I hope they are of the same level as the "Theta".

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Chronic Pain Management
Part of the regimen my pain clinic designed for me is meditation - biofeedback. I also use meditation to help minimize the side effects of the pain management medications I'm on - all of which affect brain function. I use lots of different meditation CDs in different places and different times to help me function through pain, lessen the anxiety that comes with not being able to escape it, and keep my stress level down. They're all good but nothing compares to these CDs. If you buy only one meditation resource choose this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works! BUY ALL OF THESE SETS!
Get all of the sets without the subliminal messages. My husband and I ended up buying Delta Sleep 2-CD set for me (And it DOES help!)...This set, the THETA 2-CD set, (the 2nd track on the 2nd CD is AWESOME......one feels like they're in a Native-American/Shaman-type of a trance,about to meet their 'spiritual animal or angel or something!)and also THE AWAKENED MIND CD is verrry relaxing yet euphoric to work to or study to or just relaxing with the eyes closed. These CD's take you on such mind-journeys:) You feel like you go to far-off lands and planets!

You will not waste your money on any of these sets! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars beautiful storm!
I have several thunderstorm CDs. I love storms. There is nothing more soothing, more exhilarating. To listen to rain on a tin roof or up in the hayloft, hear the thunder roll was something I adored. I could never grow tired of it. Some CD just don't capture the true sound. This one does.

You hear rain on pavement, rising and falling. Sometimes is a nice soft pattern, other times near deafening downpour. The tree frogs chirping. Then lightning strikes and the thunder comes. Sometimes close, sometimes in the distance.

Just like opening the windows and listening to a good storm. Very relaxing.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites!
I've been looking for a high quality nature CD without music, they're hard to find. If you've never heard a CD by Dan Gibson, you've got to try this one. The thunderstorm starts from a distance and moves closer. Then when the storm seems to fade, you hear wildlfe. It's very realistic. No music. The sound needs to be turned lower or the thunder can be overwhelming. Read the other reviews, this is a good purchase!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thunderstorm In The Wilderness-Solitudes Dan Gibson
This is one of the best thunderstorm cd's there is and it doesn't have music just nature sounds.Thunderstorm in the wilderness is basically a thunderstorm over a lake with all kinds of wild life.The thunder starts off distant but as it gets closer rain starts falling in the lake which is peaceful water hitting water.There are also some streams on this cd and you can hear Dan Gibson peddling his canew thru the lake.The wildlife consist of toads,frogs,birds,loons and owls.The owls sounds really errie.There are actually 2 storms on this cd.The first one eventually stops and you just hear the wildlife but than just when you think it's over it you hear distant thunder which gets louder again.Like some of the other viewers said don't turn the sound up too loud because the thunder gets loud in some parts of the cd.It's like the lightning hits something close by and it's loud enough to wake you up.Dan Gibson risked his life to get out on a lake during a thunderstorm and record this.He could have been hit by lightning but he wasn't and he put this great recording on a great sounding cd.The sound quality is awesome.Some other reviews said this wasn't real but it was.He really recorded this on a lake during a storm.I'm guessing his equipment was covered up with something to protect it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Thunderstorm CD I've heard
This is definitely the best Thunderstorm CD I've heard. It's relaxing and the sound quality is amazing. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because I wish there was MORE of it! A few hours would have been nice, or two alternate storms would have also been nice. Other than that, incredibly relaxing CD!

5-0 out of 5 stars Now I know why Grandpa liked that lake so much...
"Thunderstorm" reminds me of spending the summers on grandpa's lake up in Minnesota, sitting on his back porch on a humid night watching the lighting off in the distance. There's a nice variety of sounds in this CD; they change gradually like they do in a real storm, and they do it without sounding artificial. There are some really nice patches of about five minutes or so with frogs and soft crickets, and the loons are well off in the distance -- which is good, because loons can be pretty obnoxious. I do find that I need to adjust the sound levels on my stereo whenever I play this CD because the thunder at the beginning can be a little too loud. Also, I wish there were more crickets. Other than that, I don't have any complaints, and it really is worth the slightly higher price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Serenity upon waking OR going to sleep!
If you love the sound of birds, this is IT! Happy, serene, relaxing, but it won't put you to back to sleep in the morning! As a bonus, it's fun to watch my two cats hunting around the room for the birds they hear! No music, which makes this exactly what I was looking for.

3-0 out of 5 stars Uneven in places
I bought this CD as background for meditation. I have many positive things to say about it. The birdsong and water sounds are relaxing. Because there are discreet timed tracks, it gives you the option to select a track for the time you want to meditate, and then you know when to come out as the track ends.

However, the sound quality is uneven, and as a result is not natural sounding. For instance, the first track opens with pounding surf and no birds. Then the surf sound fades to nothing and the bird song is brought up. So it sounds very managed instead of being natural.

Also, the "ocean birds" sound pretty strange to me. Not what I am used to. Maybe pacific ocean birds sound different to the Atlantic ones I am used to , but I doubt it.

One of the tracks has a waterfall that sounds a bit bathwater-ish and the rainfall sounds a bit like static hiss at the beginning.

But despite the mixed quality it is a relaxing set of recordings. And it's hard to go wrong at this price.

5-0 out of 5 stars No Ducks Here.....
What can I say,....Very nice sound quality, very consistent volume, and very relaxing (assuming your don't have ornithophobia). If you are just looking for sounds of birds then this is the CD to buy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Songbirds
WONDERFUL cd! Bought previous birdsong cds and they had musical backgrounds; this one is natural. Not such soft sounds that you turn the volume all the way up and then suddenly get hit with 100 decibels when the music strikes! It's perfect for use in my alarm clock; nice waking up on those cold January mornings to birdsong.

5-0 out of 5 stars my parakeet loves this cd!
I own a very tame parakeet, but i'm at work six to eight hours a day, leaving my little bird all by himself. I now play this cd for him, and i cant even hear it over his happy chirping. When he is quiet enough for me to listen, i find it the most soothing of all the "bird cds" I own. I highly reccomend this cd for anyone with a lonely bird, or anyone who wants a nice, relaxing, soothing cd. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for practice at home
I first heard this CD at my power yoga class at the gym. The tracks coordinate well with a one hour class, to a mellow smooth beginning, increasing beats and intensity in the middle and then a soothing ending perfect for sivasana. This is one of my top yoga CDs, highly reccomend if you are having trouble getting motivated to practice at home. This makes it so enjoyable!

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST have for yoga instructors
This is better suited for active yoga classes, but the flow and tempo of this CD is outstanding. The rhythms are enchanting and you will find many students tapping theirs toes and letting lose. Not good for gentle, slow or relaxing classes, this is best for active yoga and magnificent for flow style yoga. The theme expressed through the entire CD was power and softness, the true hatha. Nice ease into the practice at the beginning of the CD, very nice transition into a heat building portion of the practice, and one of the best transitions I've ever heard from a yoga CD into cool down and Sivasana.

A must have CD, I lost the first CD and this is one of the few that I'm replacing out of the entire 20 CD case filled with Yoga music I had lost.

I am a junior at U.C Santa Crews and I am finding it deficit to relax at night with the pressure of school and work. I am looking for different and natural ways to relax and wake up refresh every morning to meet the challenges of the new day. I was skeptical at first, but I am willing to try anything once. After buying Journey into Deep Relaxation and listening to it for a few nights I have seen a noticeable difference in the morning after waking up. I feet like I slept a deeper then I had before thereby not feeling groggy when I wake up. I normally don't post things, but I have to recommend it. It was a good investment that I made.

Bought this and Barry Pitkoff's. This is the best, hands down! I use this before a Reiki teaching session to reach meditative levels for my students, and this CD works superbly.

Doreen's CD came into my life during a extremely rough period of stress and life changes. For the first time in my life I was having trouble sleeping and experiencing panic attacks. Doreen's techniques for relaxation and stress reduction were instumental in getting me through this period. She was a calm and guiding voice in the middle of the chaos.
I have been able to carry her relaxation techniques with me and use them when ever I feel tense or anxious. Her CD helped me to learn new ways to deal with life's challenges. Truly an amazing gift.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deeper Sleep
A friend recommended that I purchase this guided imagery. I am a midlife woman dealing with a lot of health and personal issues. I wake up in the night and have a hard time returning to sleep. I feel so stressed so much of the time. This recording has helped me a great deal. Doreen's soothing voice and the soft relaxing music allows me to quickly return to a deep sleep. I wake up feeling more rested. I am now able to work and function in a more normal way. I'm just not as uptight. I have also recommended this recording to a friend of mine that is dealing with cancer. She thinks its helpful and great too! Thank you Doreen for making this available to help so many people. Your voice is perfect to listen to as I fall asleep, almost like I have a new friend! ... Read more

Geat CD. Very pleased. Great music. Would recommend it to anyone. Very relaxing sounds.

2-0 out of 5 stars Mr. Rogers Neighborhood Meets New Age
I love ethereal, ambient, healing New Age. I have at least 250 CDs of this genre in my collection. This will not be #251. Do you remember the electronic piano/casio electric keyboard sound of Mr. Roger's Neighborhood? It is in most of the songs on this album. The few songs that don't have this are decent, but if you want truly healing, contemplative music, try Liquid Mind, Anugama, Raphael or others like them.

5-0 out of 5 stars You can't believe how nice these are....
I am nuts over Mr. Halpern's music and uses for it. I just bought another one and wanted to mention how I loved it. It is called Music for Healing by Steven Halpern, Just came out this year and it was part of a box set called Sound Medicine. Nice and inexpensive for three CDs. Halpern makes great music and has a fan for life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Puts me to sleep! I love it!
I have been purchasing Steven Halpern's CD's for quite a while and now I have a nice little collection. This specific CD reminds me of a place you can go which is completely peaceful.

I love the healing compositions and the grand piano, electric piano, harp and flute. I really think the harp is what makes this so relaxing. It sounds silly, but you really think you are in heaven if you just close your eyes. This music just takes you away to a peaceful place. What it almost does is hypnotize you to sleep.

Dr. Weil also recommends music for healing. I can fell it working. If stress causes disease, which is does, then why not benefit from relaxing music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Soothingly Peaceful
From the very first track, the music on this CD is soothing and calming, putting you in an immediately peaceful state. The music is created to respond to the seven chakras, the body's energy systems, providing harmony and relaxation to each energy center. A must have for anyone's music collection for healing and restoration. ... Read more

Album Description

We all seek a state of higher consciousness that awakens and enlivens our whole being. Masters of meditation and yoga, great artists, inventors and highly accomplished people in many walks of life have learned to develop and live from such a state.

British researcher and Zen master C. Maxwell Cade spent decades analyzing the brainwave patterns of these extraordinary people. He discovered that they each shared a common pattern of brainwaves, which Cade called the Awakened Mind Pattern, and which he believed holds the key to tapping into one’s highest potential for clarity of mind, deep insight, creative inspiration, and peak performance.

Created by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson, The Awakened Mind System uses breakthrough audio recording processes to help you access this brainwave pattern so that you can directly experience the enormous benefits of this heightened state of consciousness.

Dr. Thompson embeds inaudible pulses of sound which mirror the Awakened Mind Pattern into an ambient musical soundtrack. The result is that your own brainwaves begins to reflect the Awakened Mind pattern, drawing you easily into enhanced inner awareness, dynamic creativity, deepened meditation, spiritual connectedness, healing and renewal.

•Based on over 15 years of pioneering clinical research •Use with headphones or ordinary speakers •Contains no spoken words or subliminal messages ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awakened mind pattern
If you were to do decades of research on EEG patterns of yogis, swamis, and healers, understand those patterns, you might find common patterns for people engaged in creating, problem solving, learning, healing, memorizing and meditating.

People in that state of consciousness are using a specific combination of beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta brainwave patterns.

If you were to use entrainment to create sound pulses and music to recreate those exact same EEG patterns in normal individuals, a feeling of lucid awareness, you might create something worthwile.

Or, you could save yourself time and energy, because using the EEG research of C. Maxwell Cade, Jeffrey Thompson has already done it. For the price of a CD you can get the pioneering benefit of all this amazing information.

According to the sleeve notes with the CD there are fifteen different layers of brainwave entrainment sounds used to create the awakened mind pattern.

I do find this CD very mentally stimulating, creating all sorts of mental imagery and very relaxing. This is definitely one of my favorite CD's. I also use some of Jeffrey's other CD's for very specific purposes.

As you consider this CD you may feel it could benefit you. If you do then you should get it now. Why wait? If you find this review helpful please click yes, and feel free to check out my other reviews.

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!
This is my first Dr. Thompson adventure but after the lifting experience it gave me I am going to have to try his other CD's. It help to aleviate my doldrums and I felt much better after the first time using it. Highly reccommended for all us 9-5'ers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Magnificent & Tremendously Helpful
Dr. Thompson exeeds himself and all others with this album. I listened to this album twice so far, and it DEFINITELY made a difference in the way I felt. I was happier, more relaxed, and way more energetic than before. I recommend this album to anyone, especially if you are suffering from the "blahs."

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
I've tried others of Dr. Thompson's brain sync discs and they do help you get to profound states of consciousness. But as the review prior to mine states, this one seems to be the very best. Perhaps the biggest compliment I can give is to say the ecstatic reviewer is not exaggerating. When this one is done, I feel like I've come up from the quietest, deepest part of the ocean where I got the best full-body massage you can imagine. I felt right on the cusp of pure ecstasy. The only caveat is that I am an experienced meditator of many years, but I hope this disc brings the same results to everyone!

If you get ONE CD of Brainwave technology, BUY THIS ONE, ASAP!!! My husband and I love it so much, we each have our own copy, and got a friend to buy one..and we all listen to it EVERY DAY!!!! Whenever we're stressed, we listen to it even more! It is sooooo relaxing, yet gives you a renewed euphoric intuitive feeling. The thoughts,feelings,visuals that will pass through you will be incredible. You'll feel like you've been to far-off lands, even planets, understand the problems of yourself,the Universe,become closer to whatever you feel is a Supreme Intelligence to you...and want to tell others to buy this CD so they can experience it too! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Got me through my doctorate
I love this CD. Anyone been through high stress times and found a CD that calmed you to the point you could function? That is what this CD did for me. I listened to it in the lab and while I was writing my dissertation. Now I am looking for a CD for my baby and decided to look this up to find some like it. Really really enjoyed it. But I guess I said that.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great
This is one of the better Mozart compilations out there. If you own more than three you will find some redunancy on this CD, I'm sure, but not too much. It is very quite (and I don't mean you have to crank the volume just to hear it) and very relaxing. If you are new to classical CDs, this is great beginning.

5-0 out of 5 stars expectations throughly fufilled
This is my 3rd Mozart album from this series and I am delighted with the choices. Not only are the pieces ones' that are not always bandied about on Mazart CD's they are beautifully orchestrated and played. The sound quality is excellent. Yes this CD will quiet the mind and the soul and do so by engaging the senses in a delightful and appreciative way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mozart at his most gentle
This album delivers what it promises. Music for meditation. That may sound obvious but that is the albums beauty! I love classical music but usually have no idea who or what I am listening to. Many classical albums feature work from either a single composer and give a variety of their works or they celebrate many different composers and their varying works. It is the variety that can be the problem!! For people like myself, who have limited knowledge of classical music, how do we know what to buy? Often it is a particular style of music we are looking for to capture a particular mood. This album can be bought with the reassurance that what you get will play softly in the background from beginning to end and don't be surprised to find that you have drifted off!!! Wonderful, beautiful, music for meditation ...by some guy called Mozart!!!! ... Read more
