I found this to be an outstanding re-introduction to breathing meditation. It is exactly what I was looking for ~ both context, background and specific exercises. I would recommend it to anyone who wants initial instruction or a refesher. Dr Weil's voice is perfect - easy to understand his speech, and it is a soothing voice.

well done!

I've been listening to this on my daily walks and practicing at home. It feels sound and nurturing. I like Dr. Weil's voice, and I feel like I'm building new ways to support my well-being without putting pressure on myself.

I think his voice is so vibrant it makes you want to listen what he has to say. The information is very informative. Its very sad our dr.s do not help people with health issues. It is so easy to say here is a tablet and go home.

This CD is not specifically about meditation, but it is about breathing and cultivation of good breath practice. Following the breath, or concentrating on the breath is central to so many meditation practices, if nothing other than a starting point. I find the instruction Dr. Weil gives here as foundational. While most meditation techniques will counsel that the practitioner not manipulate the breath, some breathing exercises make sense as a preparation leading into meditation. Dr. Weil's CD provides a nice set of preparatory breathing exercises that can be of benefit to almost anyone who meditates. Have no doubt -- "Do yourself a favor every day . . . Remember to breathe." (This CD is part of the curriculum to become a certified meditation instructor as offered by the American Institute of Health Care Professionals).

I liked the information given on the CD. However, I would have enjoyed some soothing pictures/ music along with each exercise. It was a bit boring just hearing Dr. W. voice.

OVERPRICED. I wanted to add a review of this product just in terms of how MUCH value there is to the content presented here. It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that if you've done any type of meditation or breahwork, there might now be anything new for you here. I was hoping for more unique exercises. I feel like I could probably find everything I paid $13 for online someplace for free.

Simply put, focusing on the exhale, squeezing more air out of the lungs, making your breath deeper, slower, quieter and more regular aren't exercises -- they are techniques. This program could've been a blog post with bullet points. Plus relaxing music isn't something I would've paid for.

If you've NEVER done meditation or breathwork it's a nice straightforward introduction.

This item did not meet my expectations but perhaps that is because so much has been said already in other places, and so is inevitably repeated here.

Nothing new here. Found better at other sources. Am disappointed expected better from him.
