No seminar, lecture, or tangible information in this audio book. It does contain around 6 GIMs. (Guided Imagery Meditations) Intro and narration are typical to any “altered state” type audio and the “breathing instructions” are repeated on every cut. (The unexpected “snorf-haaa” (breathing technique reminder) in the middle of each exercise tends to startle the listener and breaks concentration.)
Where this well intended audio left me disillusioned is a really bad music bed for the meditations. The background consists of only three variations played on an electric piano with pad. These three patterns repeat throughout the entire audio book on each and every cut. I find myself desperately wishing for any other possible sound to break the torment of this loop.
Please don’t confuse this with entrainment music. This is not “trance” nor does it contain any “Binaural Beat Brainwave Entrainment Technologies” as would be typically found in altered state or meditation programs. (i.e., Thompson, Monroe, or Hemi-sync) It is simply a set of guided exercises. I know this because I am a composer who also writes music for entrainment.
No explanation offered for the perceived retail “value” of this collection. Maybe it’s offered to increase your intrinsic satisfaction with this month’s “free” selection.
Other works by this author seem to offer better insight into this esoteric market.

Overpriced Guided meditation.

Sorry, Pigs Might Fly, but I actually loved these. I would've appreciated a change in the background music from CD to CD, but that's a minor whinge! I'm a big fan of James Ray's energy & passion. If you're at all interested in shamanic principles & pacchi mama (Mother Earth), you'll find these meditations and the Hawaiian 'ha' breathing very powerful processes. The breathing technique especially can be used whenever & wherever. These visualisations really can/do change things if you go in with an open mind & really listen & do.....

Very disappointment with this book. I sat upright as requested but I still went asleep from boredom. Can't understand the list price value of it. Glad it only cost me one credit.
