(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 09, 2010 ) Newton, MA For its well-documented benefits of improved health and emotional equilibrium, many people become interested in meditation but find it too difficult. Their mind wanders. They feel impatient. Their body gets twitchy. They can't release their worries enough to focus. Or they feel out of tune with the spiritual overtones of a particular meditation tradition they may have sampled. A new set of four guided meditation CDs solves these problems for beginning meditators (http://www.mindbody101.com).
"Guided meditation makes it far easier to drop into a deep, stress-releasing state of calm," says certified hypnotherapist Avinoam Lerner of Newton, Massachusetts, whose voice serves as the guide on all four recordings in the "Pure Meditation" set. "All you have to do is close your eyes and listen. It's compatible with any religious faith. An interesting, soothing narration invites you to envision scenes of serenity, and your body responds with a slower heartbeat and relaxed brain waves."
The medical and psychological benefits of meditation include reduction in stress, less tension, lower blood pressure, increased energy, improved ability to concentrate, less anxiety and a better mood.
Unlike most other meditation programs, "Pure Meditation" makes it easier to set aside regular time for meditation by offering a variety of approaches to achieving relaxation and peace. These include a focus on relaxing the body, achieving a positive outlook, letting go of negative feelings like anger, bitterness or resentment, and taking a healing journey through tranquil landscapes.
"Users can either cycle through the four recordings to keep their sessions fresh or choose the one that best corresponds to their mood and needs that day," Lerner notes.
"Pure Meditation" is available at MindBody101.com as a four-CD set for $80, with free shipping, or as a downloadable set of four MP3 files for $69. Both formats include an unlimited money-back guarantee. For more information or to purchase the recordings, go to http://www.mindbody101.com.
