Hey lookdown,

The Monroe Institute has awesome CDs, they're really cool to listen to with headphones on. I think all these types of CDs you need to listen to w/headphones on to get the proper brainwave stimulation, and they have to be R/L specific headphones, which most are now.

I use the hemi-sync meta music CDs, which have no talking, and I love them!

The one I love best from Monroe is Seasons at Roberts Mountain, it's so awesome.

The Monroe CDs are about $16 apiece, and it's just my opinion that they're better than the others out there. I also have several others from Monroe, and like them all, none of them made me depressed, which some of the others, like Holosync did. The ones I have from Monroe aren't for meditation, I got them more for creativity (and ADD), since I'm an artist.

If you go to the "real life applications" section you can choose the CDs based on what you want them for:

The ones for meditation are listed here:

I haven't tried the meditation ones, hmmm, maybe I should. They have media files, so you can hear part of a CD b4 you order, and they always have a buy 3 get one free deal which is good.

The more expensive CDs (Holosync) I tried for myself - were in the neighborhood of $75 - $100 per CD (because of the technology used to create them) weren't as good for me, made me depressed -I think it's all the bells and stuff like rushing water, which a lot of them have, that made me depressed. Also you aren't supposed to listen to them for more than 1/2 hour at a time.

I got into these when my son was diagnosed with ADD, and we were looking for an alt. to meds. His Occupational Therapist Rx'd the EASe CD's (electronic auditory stimulation effect), which is brain wave entrainment, which most of these types of CDs are - they induce certain brainwaves or brainwave patterns. It sounds harmful, but it's not. The EASe CDs are $150 apiece, but they're not available to the public.

(Sonomas has the same type of CDs as EASe, and you can get them on the web, they have a site. I haven't tried them because I just really liked Monroe.)

I also have Insight and Focus (2 differernt CDs) by Awakened Minds. They're a good alt. to the Holosync CDs, and only run about $20. They're recommended by Dr. Mercola, who's a big alternative practitioner on the web. I also tried CDs by Gaim, Andrew Weil (I didn't like his at all), and Jeffery Thompson.

Good luck,
