"A ridiculous price for a underwhelming 10 minutes. Phooey,"
Very disappointed in this . A waste of money. Compare to rod Watson and you find a huge difference.
"IT has no ending!"
If I can I will return it! While the grounding is OK it does not say when to stop. Really awkward
"wishing for more"
I was hoping for more than one exercise. this in itself is a wonderful exercise. Always love Dan Siegel's work!
"Very nice intro to mindfulness"
This is a wonderfully relaxing and I love how it fades to nothing. It's short but it's sweet. A nice one to have in your collection.
"great intro to mindfulness"
simple, gentle and clear
loved the way attention was introduced
length is perfect as a taste of mindfulness
"Good meditation, no ending sound"
Well presented stress reduction meditation
The image of being at the bottom of the ocean
In other recorded meditations I've used, there's a sound at the end -- a bell or an announcement -- signaling that the meditation is over. This recording doesn't have that, and no voice comes on to say that Audible hopes you have enjoyed this recording. There's just silence. You have to set your own timer, or just stop when you're ready -- but don't wait for a sound ending the meditation, because there isn't any.
"Good, short practice."
This was a really short, calming meditation that helped me center myself a bit. Left me wanting more but will be really good when I need something brief to help me regain control of my emotions.
