This recording offers three relaxation exercises, each building on the one before. They come one right after the other without a lot of lecturing in between, which I like. They're basically self-hypnosis, where you imagine yourself going down a flight of stairs to deeper consciousness. The last one goes into the spirit guide imagery that Jack Kornfield often uses, where they insist that you personify wisdom and compassion as a being you can interact with - either a real person living or dead, or a religious or imaginary figure. What it's really getting at is the wisdom and compassion within ourselves, or that we have access to, and I don't like the one-size-fits-all demand that we HAVE to personify it into a being we can talk to. I'm sure that technique is helpful to many people, or meditation teachers wouldn't keep doing it, but I wish they'd make it optional. At least some of us who are agnostics or atheists aren't going to be willing to personify those forces into a figment of our own imagination any more than we're willing to call them God. We just don't do that process.
