The Five Touches is exactly what I was looking for. The guided meditation restores perspective and balance and makes sufficient space for healing.

This recording is a favorite in our household, and I have shared it with friends many times. At times in my life, I have listened to the deep relaxation soundtrack daily as a way to ground myself before entering the workplace, or before going to sleep. The Touching the Earth practice is moving, profound, and beautiful. This is a wonderful recording both for those who have already practiced with Thich Nhat Hanh and Sister Chan Khong, and those new to these wise, gentle teachers.

TNH's part is calming, peacefully urging us to gently surrender as he describes the intent of the 5 prostrations. He does not describe how to do the prostrations, just the meaning and what you're to be clearing. 5 stars for this part.

The second half is a woman singing. I'm not sure about what, it's a shrill asian tone that doesn't settle with me. So because of this, I'm giving 4 stars. Buy it on sale is my recommendation!

Have always loved Hanh's work. Did not enjoy the deep relaxation at all. Female voice was just not soothing to me.
